Storage battery


Established 12 In the battery in capacity or Ach, or at desire or Ach consists from six banok, containing positive and negative plates which are lowered in solution of sulfuric acid. The problem of the battery includes current production for start of the car, ignition and for lighting, and also for other consumers of the electric power.

Care of the battery

From time to time it is necessary to perform the following works that the battery served more long and its capacity was supported maximum.

1. Always keep the battery and details surrounding it clean. The surface of the battery should be always dry as differently between separate banks there can be superficial currents of leak because of what the battery is discharged in itself.
2. In cold weather to leave the battery in the charged condition as differently it will freeze. Poorly charged batteries freeze before the charged.
3. The storage battery does not demand service, i.e. the additive of electrolit and measurement of its density is not required. In the top part of the storage battery there is an index. Change of color of the index provides guidance on degrees of a razryazhennost of the battery. If the index shows green color, the storage battery is charged, the car can be maintained. In process of the battery category color of the index darkens, and gradually becomes black that points to need of a charging.
If color of the index absolutely disappears or becomes yellow, it indicates fall of level of electrolit as a result of its evaporation or long operation. It is impossible to use such storage battery. The battery should be replaced.

At installation of other storage battery demanding service, for its maintenance in an efficient condition the following is necessary:

1. Clear external surfaces of the battery and wipe them dry as it protects it from emergence of currents of leak between separate sections. Currents of leak lead to the battery self-category (it is recommended to carry out also for the storage battery which is not demanding service).
2. Level of electrolit should be between marks in outer side of the case of the storage battery (иллюстр.). To add the battery it is necessary only the distilled water.
Do not leave the storage battery in the discharged condition since it can freeze. The discharged battery freezes quicker, than charged (it belongs as well to the battery which is not demanding service).

Removal and installation of the storage battery

1. The storage battery is in an impellent compartment and fastens on the console, as is shown in иллюстр.
Disconnect a cable of weight (1) from the storage battery. The wrench is for this purpose used.
3-positive cable;
4-fixing level.
2. Disconnect a positive cable from the battery.
3. Unscrew nuts of long bolts of fastening of a level and remove a level.
4. Take out the battery from an impellent compartment. Carefully address with the battery.

The battery in sequence is established, to return to removal. Positive, then the negative cable at first joins.
At battery installation at first smooth out contacts, and then grease them with special greasing.
