Battery care tips
Refer to the battery manufacturer's instruction regarding safety and care of the battery. Some guidelines are:
Optimising the life of your battery:
Choose the correct size battery for your system.
House the battery in a suitable battery box if the battery is likely to be exposed to the weather.
Inspect the battery regularly to ensure that the battery electrolyte level does not fall below 12 mm (½”) above the surface of the battery plates.
The use of de-ionised, distilled or rain water is recommended to top up the battery electrolyte level.
Recharge a discharged battery as soon as possible.
Store spare batteries completely charged and recharge at regular intervals (every 8 weeks).
- Avoid subjecting batteries to temperature extremes < -10° C (14° F) or >50° C (120° F).
