    a low-charged battery hastens battery sulfation


    What is Battery Sulfation?

    loss of cranking power.
    longer charging times.
    excessive heat build-up leading to "boil out"
    shorter running times between charges.
    dramatically shorter battery life.

    the battery plates break down faster (sulfation), if kept for longer times in under-charged condition.
    these plates break down more slowly, if they are kept in fully-charged condition.

    To the guys who keep their chargers in trickle mode for extended periods how often do you guys need to top up with distilled water? Our 1-2 year old Amarons have quite a bit of spilled fluid coming from the vent. Haven't had the time to remove the batteries and pop off the caps yet.

    mostly due to overcharging
    pwede mo check while trickle charging if may sa vent nga lumalabas or if may leak sa case mismo. btw naka strap pa naman battery mo sa auto? baka vibrations din kasi pwede cause ng leak/crack

    if you do not mind opening the caps in your maintenance-free or low-maintenance batteries (and possibly voiding the warranty),
    i recommend opening and examining before and after every charge, and topping up as necessary.
    just like what we used to do in the olden days.

    As sure as the sky is blue and the Earth is a globe. What is your point?
