When should I water my battery?

Batteries in demanding applications should be checked/watered more frequently than those in lighter applications. A good rule of thumb is to check water levels in the battery every 5-10 charge cycles, and water accordingly.

Please Note:
ONLY water the battery when it is fully charged. When a battery charges, the water level increases. When watering a battery that is less than fully charged could result in water overflowing from the battery at next charge.

What do I smell when my battery is charging?

The odor is Hydrogen Sulfide. When a battery reaches 80% and above during a charge cycle it begins to generate heat.

Why do I see bubbles rising to the top?

This is a normal occurrence in batteries and is commonly referred to as “gassing” or “mixing”.  TIP: Batteries that are overcharged or were severely discharged need more charge time to bring them up to 80%.

How is the AMP Hour capacity of my battery calculated?

Each battery has a model number with a typical layout of xx-xx-xx. There is always one more negative than positive plates in each cell. To calculate capacity, take the number of positive plates in each cell times the Amp-hour(Ah) capacity per positive plate.

[(Total # of plates per cell-1)/2] x Ah capacity per positive plate
[(13-1)/2] = 6.   6×85=510 Ah

Equalize- Why is it important and how often?

By performing an equalizing charge, the acid concentration will be more equally distributed throughout each cell in the entire battery, resulting in a more balanced voltage. Depending on usage, a battery typically should be equalized every 5 charge cycles.

If I want to water my own battery, do you have kits available?

Yes, we offer industrial battery systems such as FLOW-RITE, AquaPro, and Philadelphia Scientific.  The industrial battery system brands are cost effective. They are able to extend the life & performance of the battery, along with saving time and convenient.
