Storage of the battery

The batteries which are not used a long time are discharged in itself and can be subject to sulphation. If to charge such batteries with the fast-charger, they do not accept charging current and because of so-called superficial charging become "full" too early. They are faulty.


  1. Before rejecting the battery, it is necessary to check it.
  2. To check electrolyte density. If density in all banks differs no more than on 0,04 g/ml, the battery should be charged with the normal charger.
  3. To check the battery after charging under loading. If values do not correspond demanded, the battery is faulty.
  4. If electrolyte density in one or several banks is much lower, than in the others (for example, in 5 banks density is equal to 1,16 g/ml, and in one 1,08 g/ml), the battery has short circuit.
  5. To avoid battery presenilation, it is necessary to charge the stored battery each 2 months.
