Servicing Batteries and Chargers:

In operation, batteries are exposed to various extremes,  A regular service ensures the long term well being of batteries.  Listed below are many of the components which are assessed during a battery service.  Chargers are tested in conjunction with batteries to ensure correct calibration between charger and battery.

inter-cellular-connectors

Inter Cellular Connectors are replaced annually as they become hard and sulphated while used, causing a build-up of resistance.

harness

The harness must must be assessed and replaced when necessary due to exposure to acid and wear and tear.

Battery-plug

Battery plug to be inspected, ensuring proper contact is achieved.

specific-gravity-readings

Specific gravity readings are checked.  If found below par, a battery regeneration process is advised.  Acid adjustment is a short term solution for a much larger problem.

tank-cleaned

The battery tank is cleaned with a soda ash solution to halt corrosion.  Tanks are reconditioned, minor repairs done and newly painted.

dicharge-capacity-test

Discharge capacity test conducted to assess performance over a 5 hour period.  All cells under 1.76 volts fail the discharge capacity test.

stringent-quality-control

A battery and charger service is followed by a stringent Quality control process and signed off by manager to ensure each unit serviced complies with the Batterie Plus standard and workmanship.
