How To Store Batteries

Batteries are heavy and therefore require adequate handling systems. Always store upright in cool and dry place, far from water sources (10-25 Celcius Degree) and protect from direct place on the floor. Always sell/ use the batteries in first place which are in the stcok for a longer time (FIFO-First In First Out stock handling method), for stock rotation. Keeping older batteries at front will be helpful to this. 

Special Treatment For Maintenance Free Battery

  1. Always store upright position so that no electrolyte is spit by tilting and protect from direct place on the floor. Recommended to stack up batteries up to 4 stack maximum.
  2. Periodically check the charge of the battery (each 3 months):
  1. Before selling, battery voltage must be greater than 12.60V
  2. Minimum Voltage for a battery through storage is 12.40V. Below that value, sulfuration will start on the plates and the battery performance is affected. Charge without delay to prevent permanent damage. Remove wrapping and charge with constant voltage at 16.1V with 1/10 of the rated ampere-hour value.

Battery Fitment To Vehicle

  1. Check if you have the correct battery for the vehicle.
  2. Ensure the engine is turned off.
  3. Remove the oled battery, disconnecting the earth cable first (negative terminal).
  4. Check short circuit in the vehicle to see if there is any consumption without running the car.
  5. Clean the battery tray and terminal connectores using a wire brush, renew if necessary.
  6. Install the new battery, do not over tighten hold down/ fitting. Check polarity before connecting the leads, beginning with the positive cable (red). Smear terminals with petroleum jelly. Always connect earth cable last, do not over tighten connectors;
  7. Test proper charge circuit operation by running engine and measuring voltage battery.

Usage Maintenance

A battery only requires a little monthly maintenance to perform perfectly. Keep the battery charged to 100%, recharging when the lights dim, the starter sounds weak, or the battery hasn't been used in more tahn two weeks. Test your battery on a regular basis, including when you have your car serviced before long trips or after it's been recharged. If the vehicle is in storage or used infrequently, disconnect the battery cable to eliminate drain from electrical equipment. Charge the battery every two weeks. Especially for low maintenance/ conventional battery, follow this simple check list every month:

  1. Check the electrolyte level, if below lower level, refill with distilled water.
  2. Make sure vent caps are tight to prevent water or baking soda from entering cells.
  3. Keep the top free of grime. Clean terminals and connectors as necessary. Lubricate the terminal posts to prevent from corrosion.
  4. Check cables, clamps, and case, for obvious damage or loose connections.
  5. Finish up by testing the battery with either a hydrometer or voltmeter. If voltage is below 12.5V, charge the battery. Do Not overcharge; an automatic charger that turns off or on with a timer is your best bet.
