GENERAL INSTRUCTIONS FOR USAGE AND MAINTENANCE

  1. Do not open the vent plug unless authorized to do so
  2. Battery should be firmly secured in the cradle. Please ensure that the cable clamps fit tightly and properly on the terminals. A loosely held battery vibrates and bounces, which can cause damage to the container and plates
  3. Replacement/installation of a battery shall be performed by trained personnel exactly as per procedure, exercising safety precautions carefully
  4. To get maximum life from the battery following points are advised:
    • The top of the battery must be kept clean and dry. Petroleum jelly can be applied to cable clamps and terminals. Never apply grease. Terminal corrosion, dirt and moisture cause loss of power and make the battery weak
    • Get the fan belt, electrical wiring, dynamo/alternator, regulator setting and battery open circuit voltage checked regularly and recorded in the service record. A faulty electrical system will damage the battery
    • The Alternator/Dynamo charging voltage setting measured across the battery terminals shall be maintained at 14.20±0.20 volts for 12V System and 28.40V± 20 Volts for 24V system
  5. The recommended Specific Gravity of fully charged battery is 1.280 ±0.005 at 27oC. In case of deviation from this, appropriate action in correcting the same needs to be taken
  6. Electrolyte level must always be maintained inline with the bottom of the vent hole. In case of any drop in electrolyte level, add pure distilled water. NEVER ADD ACID
  7. At the time of a new battery fitment, the electrical system of the vehicle shall be fully checked to ensure starter, alternator and voltage regulation are operating correctly

 

SAFETY

  • Keep away from fire as hydrogen gas can breakout from battery, it will cause explosion
  • Do not make a contact between Positive + & Negative – Terminals of the battery with metal tool. It may cause short circuit leading to explosion/fire
  • Sulphuric acid in the battery can cause blindness, burn the skin & is corrosive for metals if in contact

 

PRECAUTIONS

  • Wear protective goggles & hand gloves while handling the battery
  • If the battery liquid (Sulphuric acid ) goes in your eyes, immediately wash the eyes with water and seek medical attention
  • If battery liquid mistakenly goes in your mouth, immediately gargle with water, drink sufficient water and seek medical attention
  • Keep away from children as it is dangerous
  • Do not pour excess distilled water. It may spill-causing damage to the vehicle
  • If the liquid gets into contact with your skin / clothes, immediately wash with water and soap, otherwise it will cause burning and damages to clothes
  • Do not drop and/or throw the battery any where. It is hazardous to health and environment
