For a battery to remain in good working order, it should be maintained in a fully charged state by the vehicle’s charging system. Where a battery is used as a means of alternative power, it is generally charged by means of an independent charger or rectiﬁer which supplies controlled direct current (DC).
An independent charger is also used to charge motor vehicle batteries that have become discharged due to faulty alternators, charging systems or if left unused for prolonged periods.
If the following hints are adhered to, a battery will provide extended and trouble free service.
Do not test batteries by shorting across terminal posts with wire, spanners, etc.
Do not allow open ﬂames or sparks near a battery as it could explode (batteries give off ﬂammable gasses).
Do not use a single spanner to loosen or tighten the terminal clamp as this could damage the post lid seal. Use a spanner to the nut and a second spanner to the bolt.
Do not use the starter motor to propel the vehicle or leave the vehicle parked with accessories switched on for extended periods.
Do not lean over a battery when charging or testing.
Do not put any metal objects on top of a battery.
