Hi, everyone. Do you remember me? I am Joseph Smith. In the modern life, besides directly using electric energy, we always need some packs to store electric. It is called the battery.
The battery is energy storage pack in the form of voltage direct current (DC) – contains power. At present, there are many types of battery with a variety of quality, features and price. It can include Lead Acid, Sealed, dry graphite, cadmium, nickel, lithium and so on…With each battery of each brand has strict rules about the use, storage and charging. When purchasing, you must have the full understanding and knowledge of the selected battery.
On the market, we should choose the best batteries with high quality to buy. Remember that you should avoid buying batteries of low quality. Although it’s price is cheaper but it is quickly damaged and causes other problems in the using process, so in the final, you actually have to pay the high costs.
And many people confuse that why does your battery quickly become out of use? The reasons can be in your using process.
In this Charging, Using and Preserving Battery Tips, I want to share you some helpful tips to help you charge, use and preserve your battery to keep it more durable.
Charge Mode (Charging)
#1 Select appropriate electric power
The selection of the appropriate electric power line for the battery charger is a particularly important factor. This can ensure that your battery not only is durable but also has really filled.
If you choose a small charger line (compared with capacity), the battery will fully charge slowlier. However, the smaller the electric power is, the more durable full indeed the battery is.
Conversely, if you select the charge current that is too large (compared with the capacity), the batteries will be quickly filled, but will quickly become corrupt and the full phenomenon is usually fake. It can even explode while charging too strong.
#2 Time for charge
Normally, the standard load flow should be stable from 1/10 to 1/5 battery capacity (except some special batteries enabling faster loading according to technical documentation attached). The standard time to recharge a battery usually 8-12 hours.
When the battery is fully charged, you need to interrupt or switch to maintain load in a subsequent period (Floating charge) in order to make the battery really full (this feature in the simple batteries is usually not available).
Especially, with some of the batteries, the temperature should be closely supervised during the charging process.
#3 Using battery
- Do not let the battery at temperatures that are too high to avoid overheating
- Take batteries in a cool place where is solid enough.
- Avoid short circuit of the battery as well as fall the electrically conductive material to connect 2 poles of battery
- Do not leave batteries near the place where contains are corrosive chemicals.
- Do not leave battery near sharp objects, do not crush or take furniture in the battery.
Note: The maximum discharge of the battery is not greater than 3 times the capacity of the battery and the operating time in this mode is not more than 3 minutes continuously.
#4 Preserving battery
- Check for cracks in the battery cover. (Especially the area around the pile jar, this place can stand in large pressure when removing or attaching cables jar). You should replace it if it has any cracks.
- Check the connective cable. Replace the cable if necessary.
- Cleaning the jar’s pile. Check the jar deposit to make sure the cable and it is not loose (when cleaning, you should pay attention to make the poles not touch to each other.
- Regularly check the level of liquid in the bottle. You have to ensure the level and the concentration of water follow the guidance of the battery manufacturer.
- For Sealed batteries, the air will be examined through the directive eyes. Light blue shows that the jar is good and full. Red shows that it is weak.
- The temperature environment greatly affects to battery life (especially when releasing and loading). The lower the temperature is, the higher the life expectancy of the battery is. The ideal level is 0 ~ 25 ° C. The highest temperature mustn’t exceed 600C.
Charging, Using and Preserving Battery Tips Conclusion
There are many ways you can apply to charge, use and protect your battery but those are the best tips that I often used with my battery and it makes me really satisfied. I hope that Charging, Using and Preserving Battery Tips is useful for you. Thank you for attention.
