Technical Guide & Safety Tips

Proper maintenance tips and safety guidelines are important to handle the battery with care and avoid any health hazard. So here are a few safety guidelines to protect yourself before handling the battery.

  • Do not alter the shape or the packing of the battery to prevent any acid leakage or contamination.
  • Always keep the battery in an isolated environment away from heat more than 52 degree Celsius.
  • Make sure the clamps are tight enough to hold the batteries stable in the designated position.
  • Do not overcharge the batteries.
  • Keep the hoses and connection points clean to ensure healthy current flow.
  • Check the status of the battery once in every two weeks or before going for a long trip.

Battery Testing Procedure

To provide high performance over a longer period of time with complete reliability, every battery made goes through an exhaustive quality-controlled testing process in 11 steps. Unless a battery passes these 11 steps, it is not passed further. These quality check come under the following sections.

Visual Check

  • Check the container, cover, and terminals. If there is physical damage, reject the battery
  • Check the Indicator (If the battery has the indicator). Always look right down when viewing the indicator on the battery to dislodge any air bubbles.

Voltage Check

  • If OCV is below 12.4V, recharge the battery immediately.

Discharge/Load Test

  • Connect the battery tester to battery terminal
  • Measure the temperature of the battery. Set the battery tester ampere values for ½ of the CCA rating
  • Apply the load for 15 seconds and res the voltage
  • Compare measures values with the values in table 2
  • If the values are outside of the table values, recharge the battery and test again. If the battery fails the load test twice, replace it.
  • Sometimes, electronic testers such as MIDTRONICS, SNAPON etc. are used instead of load tester. Electronic testers are only suitable for batteries that have been in use of a certain time. They cannot rate the performance of new or unused batteries. For this reason, we recommend the test defined in global standards to confirm rated specifications.

1How Battery Works

The battery is the main component of a cars power system and when the battery receives the “ON” signal, the ignition is turned on, the battery releases stored chemical energy as electricity which then cranks the engine.

2How To Jump Start A Vehicle

  • Connect the positive terminals of jump-starting and stalled-car batteries to each other.
  • Do the same with negative terminals.
  • After starting, remove cables in reverse order starting from connection to the car frame.
  • After starting remove cables in reverse order.
  • If the vehicle does not start within 30seconds, call an auto electrician.

3Battery Definitions

Understanding what various commonly used terms related to components and the working of the battery constitutes battery definition. It will help you take better care of your battery and understand maintenance terms.

4Battery Handling

Due to various hazards that can be caused by components of the battery, it is extremely important to handle the battery only with utmost caution. So, here are a few tips to help you take precaution against hazards:

  • Be extremely careful while handling battery acid.
  • If the electrolyte is to be prepared always add concentrated acid to water, never the other way around.
  • Always shield your eyes when working with batteries.

5Battery Recycling

It is important that the battery is properly disposed of and doesn’t fall into wrong hands due to the presence of lead, a component that becomes hazardous without proper handling. So here are a few battery recycling tips.

  • Handel used batteries with care
  • Get your used batteries recycled by authorized smelters.
  • Do not throw used batteries out in the open or dump them with other chemicals.
