What is battery sulfation? How does battery sulfation occur? Battery sulfation occurs when a battery is undercharged or deprived of a full charge. Every time we don’t complete a full charge, it adds to the build-up of sulfates. What is battery sulfation? It is normal in a battery for small sulfate crystals to form during …
The first step is to charge the battery fully preferably from an external source.
Disconnect the battery terminals and keep the top of the battery and terminals clean. If there is any acid on top of the cover, leakage current will flow continuously and discharge the battery partially.
Leave the vehicle in the shade to avoid heating up which increases self-discharge and capacity loss.
Lead-acid battery undergoes self-discharge of 1% per month for antimonial battery and much less for lead-calcium. The float charge current should be just adequate to compensate for the loss of capacity on self-discharge.
Tubular Gel Valve Regulated lead Acid Battery are lead acid batteries with tubular positive plates for cyclic applications and it is sealed for its service life and are maintenance free. The Gel is manufactured in a secret recipe with German technology, where the electrolyte is jellified in a fumed silica base.
