Quick Capacity Test, Will You Have The Power You Need When You Need It?
1 September 2008
If you have anything that runs on an electric battery, or a sealed lead acid battery, you know that you have to recharge the battery on a regular basis. You are probably also aware that you can ruin the battery by either not charging it for long periods of time or over charging it. This is the same with all batteries that are rechargeable. They have to be maintained.
Sealed lead acid batteries are expensive. They can end up costing you a lot of money if you continue to keep replacing them because you do not want to take care of them or refuse to charge them properly in order to make sure that your battery is working the way that it should be, you can do a quick capacity test. This can be performed by an inexpensive device that can tell you if the battery is working and if it has enough power. It can also tell you if it needs additional charging or is undercharged. A sealed lead acid battery quick capacity test is a great way to make sure that your battery is working properly on your electric vehicle.
Lead acid batteries are hardly new. This concept is over 100 years old. Over the past 30 years, however, it has become apparent that we need to have rechargeable batteries instead of disposable batteries. Disposable batteries are not biodegradable and can end up causing damage to the environment when they are tossed away. Most states have regulations regarding the disposal of any batteries.
You can save both the environment and money by making sure that your sealed lead acid battery is in good condition at all times by testing it periodically. Just as you maintain other items in your home and on your vehicle, you should do the same with your rechargeable battery that is used for your car, electric vehicle or other device. It is better to maintain the battery by testing it and making sure that it has the proper amount of power, than to have to replace the battery.
Once you have performed the sealed lead acid battery quick capacity test, which only takes a few minutes, you can then opt to recharge the battery if it needs additional charging, or follow other instructions that you will learn from the testing manual. Everything is very clear to understand, even for someone who has never before tested a battery. In addition to finding out about the amount of energy that is left in the battery, this test can also tell you if the battery is too cold or hot or has a leak. This is just another way to maintain the vehicle that the battery allows to run.
