Battery Maintenance Tips

    • Ensure that the battery is firmly secured and placed in the cradle Make sure that the battery tray is cleaned properly and thoroughly Keep the clamps and terminals grease free for smooth functioning.
    • Never hammer down the clamps. To clean the battery top of mud and dust, use a clean, damp cloth If the battery is covered in a lot of mud, the top should first be cleaned thoroughly and then the vent plug should be opened using a rupee coin, after which it should be immersed in distilled water to clean the mud completely.
    • Always ensure that the vent plug top is not blocked. Ensure that the clamps are always firmly tightened.
    • The maximum time to keep batteries idle is 3-4 weeks for normal batteries and 10-12 weeks for MF batteries.
    • After that period the battery starts discharging. Make sure the connecting cables are fixed to the correct poles.
    • (first +ve to +ve then -ve to -ve) Do NOT apply grease on the terminal cable clamps, although you can apply petroleum jelly.
    • To open vent plugs in maintenance-free (MF) automotive batteries, use a rupee coin.
    • To protect the batteries from damage, recharge at recommended amperage (Amperes) only.
    • Do NOT operate or charge the battery if the temperature of the electrolyte exceeds 60°C. For best performance output form your vehicle, find a battery with the correct capacity and use it.
    • Check the voltage regulator output periodically as over or undercharging can be harmful to the battery.
