Often taken for granted until things go wrong, mining locomotive batteries require maintenance and care to the same degree as the locomotive motor and mechanics of the locomotive itself. Traditional locomotive batteries are composed of lead-acid cells, which need a full recharge everytime to prevent capacity loss and to bring up all the cells up to the same voltage. The battery of a mining locomotive is like the heart in a body. If it isn’t regularly maintained and looked after, it may fail.

A battery is an electrochemical device which stores energy in a chemically bonded structure and releases the energy in the form of electrons resulting from the battery’s chemical discharge reactions. Charging the battery provides the electrons to reform the chemical bonds which are stored in the battery’s active materials. This is true of all battery chemistries, including those mentioned in this blog: lead-acid batteries, nickel-metal hydride, nickel-cadmium and lithium-ion variants. In this blog we will be discussing the optimum charging procedures for 12 volt batteries.
