Battery Selection and Installation
Choose a suitable battery for the vehicle to be used through the lists on our catalogue specifying battery features. The most important criteria are size, cold starting current and capacity values. Flood dry batteries using the method above and charge if necessary.
If open circuit voltage of flooded charged batteries is 12.50 Volts or below when average temperature is less than 4 C, recharge using the method above.
If ambient temperature is high and open circuit voltage is 12,40 volts or below, recharge using the method above.
Before disconnecting the old battery, mark the cables as +/- in order to connect the new one accurately.
Ensure that the battery voltage value and direction are correct by measuring, check carefully and clean cable connections and the battery table. Insert the new battery, connect the cables and tighten. Connect the positive (+) cable first. Connect the negative (-) ground cable later. Tighten carefully. Be extra careful when tightening battery terminals as over-tightening damages terminals.
ONLY PURE WATER MUST BE ADDED TO A BATTERY WITH LOW ELECROLYTE LEVEL
