Here is some tips to maintain your Automotive Battery:

  • How do you know when your battery requires recharging?
You are not able to start your car's engine. The lamps' light is diminished, the horn weakens and the volt is under 12 voltages or its original rated.

  • How do you recharge a battery?First of all, prepare the charger.
Quick-charge recharging.
1. Make sure the charger is at OFF position 
2. Attach the clips (red + and black -)
3. Connect the charger to the electricity point
4. Set the timer
5. Set the recharging flow (maximal equivalent to the battery's normal capacity). 
These steps apply only to an emergency condition.

Normal recharging.
1. Make sure the charger is at OFF position
2. Attach the clips (red + and black -)
3. Connect the battery in parallel fashion
4. The recharge flow is selected for a battery with small capacity
5. Recharge flow volume is 1/10 of normal capacity
6. Recharge time: 3 times constant voltage.

After recharging is completed.
1. Turn off the charger
2. Release the clips on the battery
3. Release the wire from the electricity point.

  • How to indicate a full charged battery?
It electrolyte's gravity reaches 1.260-1.280 and its polarity tension is constant at 15-16.5 for one hour.

  • How to take care your battery?
- Keep the electrolyte in the battery between the lower level and upper level lines. Check it at least once a month.
- Short of electrolyte will cause sulfation to the elements and reduce the battery's performance in generating electricity flow.

- Use distilled/demineralized water only for battery filling. Avoid using tap/well/mineral water as they may contain metal ions or organic substances that 
lower the battery's performance and its life.
- Clean the battery's surface and keep from any electrolyte spill.
- Clean the terminal surface using a little grease/lubrication to prevent from oxidation or fungus.

- Do not connect the positive and negative terminal using a piece of wire as this will damage/terminate the connection between the terminals and 
- Make sure the wire connection to the terminals is tight enough. Loose connection causes sparks, it may cause the battery explodes. 
- Cover the positive terminal's surface using isolator (plastic/rubber) to avoid short circuit to the vehicles body.
- Cover the battery's surface with plastic/rubber sheet to protect it from dust/dirt blocking the vent holes.
- Check the vent holes periodically. Blocked vent holes may cause the battery expand and eventually will cause explosion or leakage.

  • What causes white flakes near the battery terminals and what are the consequences?
The electrolyte in the battery vaporizes and flows out from the cells. This vapor contains sulfide acid and will condense in the air and form sulfide crystal or flakes around the terminals and wire. These white flakes may hamper the electricity flow due to its isolator nature.

  • What indicates of damaged battery?
A battery is damaged when it cannot be recharged. Recharging is not able to generate 12 volts or its original rate voltage.

  • What makes a battery explode?
During charging or recharging, the electrolyte generates H2 and 02 gasses, which are explosive or easily explode when exposed to sparks, resulted from loose wire connection to the terminals. It is vital to ensure that the wire connection to the terminals is tight. During charging, the vent plugs must be removed to allow the gas flow.

  • What makes your battery short supply?
Short-supply battery occurs because the battery's electricity consumption is not equal to its alternator's flowed refilling. This happens when the alternator has weakened of its electricity consumption. If the alternator is not replaced immediately, the retained electricity current in the battery will decrease and eventually fails to start the engine.

  • When do you need to add electrolyte?
When the electrolyte's surface reaches or below the lower level line.Why should you maintain the electrolyte above the lower level line?The plates will harden or experience sulfation and reduce its performance.

Follow this instruction
  • Wear safety clothes
  • Make sure to switch off ignition and accessories.
  • Take note of battery polarity: When dismantling: Detach negative (grounded) cable from negative post first. Negative post has green plastic collar, (-) minus marking, smaller size than positive and lighter in color than positive
  • (when wet/used).
  • When installing: Connect positive (starter) cable to the positive post first. Positive post has red plastic collar, (+) plus marking, bigger size than the negative and darker color that negative (when wet/used).
  • Attach negative cable last: The presence of sparks indicates a short circuit or that the battery was connected in reverse -- recheck.
  • Replace worn, frayed cables for effective transfer of battery power. For 12v use full size cable No.4 gauge. For heavy demand or unusually long connection, a bigger size should be used.
  • Make sure that the battery is securely mounted. See to it that the bracket (plastic if possible) is properly torque to reduce potential damage from vibration or dislocation, especially when using a bigger battery type. A bracket is recommended if there is none.
  • Clean battery terminals. Coat external surfaces with mineral grease or petroleum jelly.
  • Clean surface of battery. Use of compressor advised.
  • Use proper tools. Avoid hitting terminals when installing or tightening as it may result in damaged post bushing. Damaged bushings could cause acid to leak that may corrode holddown brackets, holder and terminals.


The best way to test a battery is with the electronic testers available at most automotive shops and even a few auto parts stores. A tech will hook the tester to the battery in the car, and it will take a snapshot of your battery's condition and indicate whether it needs to be replaced.
Batteries can do a lot of things while we’re not looking. The most common way a battery will drain overnight is by leaving a light on or a power adapter plugged in, zapping all your battery power while you’re fast asleep.

Sign 01

Slow engine crank:
When you attempt to start the vehicle, the cranking of the engine is sluggish and takes longer than normal to start.

Sign 02

Check engine light:
The check engine light on the dashboard panel sometimes appears when your battery power is weak.

Sign 03

Low battery fluid level:
Car batteries typically have a part of the casing that’s translucent so you can always keep an eye on your battery’s fluid level. If the fluid level is below the lead plates : (energy conductor:) inside, it’s time to have the battery and charging system tested.(non maintenance free battery only)

Sign 04

The swelling, bloating battery case, check it visually:
If your battery casing looks like this you can blame excessive heat for causing your battery case to swell, decreasing your battery life.

Sign 05

Battery leak:
Leaking also causes the corrosion around the posts : (where the + and – cable connections are located.: ) The gunk may need to be removed; otherwise, your car may not start.

Sign 06

Old age/Lifetime first buy date:
Your battery can last well beyond three years but, at the very least, have its current condition inspected on a yearly basis when it reaches the three year mark.

so that is all folks, hope can be helpfull.

Replacing Your car Battery (Procedure)

  1. With the engine off, pop the hood and find the battery. Detach the negative (black) battery cable from the battery. First loosen the nut with a combination wrench. A better tool to use would be battery pliers or a battery wrench.
  2. Twist and pull up on the end of the cable with your hand. If it does not come off easily you may want to purchase a battery terminal puller. This will help prevent damage to your battery or cables. It is not recommended to use a screwdriver as a pry-bar; this could break off your battery terminal or cause other damage.
  3. Detach the positive (red) battery cable from the battery using the same method.
  4. Using a combination wrench or a socket and ratchet, remove the battery hold-down clamp.
  5. Take the battery out of the battery tray. Batteries are heavy, so grab from the bottom using both hands. If the battery has a handle, use that instead.
  6. Use either a battery cleaning solution or the baking soda and water mixture to thoroughly clean any corrosion that may be left behind on your battery tray and hold down clamp from your old battery.
  7. Clean the battery cable connectors with a wire brush. To remove heavy corrosion from the connectors, use battery-cleaning solution.
  8. Place the new battery in the battery hold-down tray and secure the battery with the hold-down clamp.
  9. Spray both terminal ends with anti-corrosion solution.
  10. Attach and tighten the positive battery cable (Red).
  11. Attach and tighten the negative battery cable (Black).
  12. Ensure that all cable connections/ hold downs are properly tightened. Check the security of your battery by trying to move it back and forth. If you can move the battery cable terminals at all, your car may not start due to a weak electrical connection.
thats all folks.
