Keeping your battery clean is a great way to extend its life. Keep the terminals and the battery case clean. Visually inspect the terminals and cables for signs of corrosion at least once a year, especially in hot temperatures. Keep the top of the battery clean of heavy dirt and oil to reduce the risk of electrical transients between the positive and negative posts, which will result in a quicker discharge.

How Can I Tell The Age Of My Car Battery?

Reading the date code on an Interstate 12-volt and 6-volt automotive, commercial or marine battery

With these types of batteries, you're looking for a four- or five-digit shipping date code engraved into the cover. This code can only be seen when looking down on the top of the battery. The code is not on the battery's label and it is not on the rim around the cover. The code is usually near one of the corners of the battery. This code tells when the battery was shipped from the factory to the local Interstate Battery wholesale distributor. The additional digits tell where the battery was made.
