My car occasionally won't start - is it time for a new battery?

My 2016 Nissan X-Trail occasionally won't start The battery shows 11.8v and the dash lights up but the car only clicks when the ignition key is turned, but it starts strongly with jump leads. Any thoughts please?
Your battery should read close to 12.5v at the terminals with the engine off. If the alternator is working okay then the reading at the battery (with the engine running) should be around 14v to 14.5v. If that is not the case then the battery needs changing.
