Summer Battery Care Tips

Most of us only think about our car batteries condition in the weeks leading up to winter. The truth is summer heat can do just as much or more damage to your cars battery than winter’s cold temperatures.
Here are some startling statistics regarding the damage that heat can cause to your vehicles battery.
• Batteries die 30% faster from the summer heat vs. winters cold.
• A far larger number of car batteries die in July than in January.
• Once the outside temperatures reach 70° C, the temperature under the hood of your car can be 120° C.
By following these tips you can reduce the chances of premature battery failure due to extreme summer heat:
• Perform a visual inspection of your battery, if you notice corrosion around the terminals or bulging in the batteries case you should have the battery serviced by a licensed technician.
• Preventive maintenance goes a long way toward prolonging the life of your battery. Take a few minutes to read about your battery in your car’s manual and become familiar with what kind of battery it is, where it is, how to safely clean it and what the indicator lights inside your car might be trying to tell you.
• If your battery isn’t maintenance free you should have the water levels checked in each cell, making sure the plates are covered. This prevents sulfation and reduces the possibility of an internal battery explosion.
• If the water level is low, add distilled water (avoid tap water) until the plates are covered.
• Avoid overfilling, especially in hot weather, because the heat can cause the solution inside to expand and overflow.
It is recommended that you have your battery and electrical system professionally tested every three to six months and especially prior to heading out on a trip.
Royal Battery Sales will provide free battery testing to determine how much life is left in your battery to prevent the cost and headaches associated with unexpected battery failure.

Battery Recycling

Domestically manufactured alkaline batteries made after 1994 no longer contain mercury, so they can be disposed of safely in regular trash. However, UPS batteries, nickel-cadmium rechargeable batteries, button batteries (like those used in watches and hearing aids), and the lithium batteries in computers and cameras should NOT be put in regular trash.
Royal Battery Sales recycles the following batteries:
• Nickel cadmium (Ni-Cd) rechargeable batteries
• Nickel metal hydride (Ni-MH) batteries
• Lithium ion (Li-ion)
• Laptop batteries
• lead acid Car and deep cycle batteries
• Sealed Lead Acid/ Absorbed Glass Matt batteries

Off Season Battery Storage

If at all possible, remove the battery from the vehicle. Clean the battery and terminals using a solution of baking soda and water if there is any concern of electrolyte outside of the battery. Make sure that nothing enters the battery during cleaning. You can also use this same solution to clean the battery compartment of the vehicle to help neutralize any electrolyte that may be present. Rinse with clean water and dry thoroughly.

After the battery is cleaned, inspect for any signs of damage or extraordinary wear that may have occurred while in service. If you have any concerns about the condition of your battery, you should seek the advice of a mechanic or a battery specialist.

Upon determining there is no concern of damage, for conventional batteries, check the electrolyte levels. The level of electrolyte must be maintained above the minimum and at or below the maximum level line on the side of the battery. Check only when on a flat level service. If you need to increase the level, carefully add distilled water avoiding any overfill. Once the levels are adjusted, charge the battery referring to the manufacturers instructions.

Sealed VRLA batteries, or those referred to, as “Maintenance Free” do not require you to maintain the electrolyte levels. Sealed VRLA batteries must never be opened once in service or permanent damage and failure will occur. As with the conventional batteries, once you have cleaned and inspected the battery, charge it per the manufacturers instructions.
Odyssey ” flat plate AGM” batteries do not require you to maintain the electrolyte levels and must never be opened.

With the batteries in a full state of charge, you may wish to store it in a cool dry area away from children and pets. You may also choose to reinstall it in the vehicle. Either way, allow yourself access to the battery so you can periodically check your state of charge, or simply attach a NOCO Genius Multi-Purpose Battery Charger Maintainer or a Deltran Battery Tender® Battery Charger Maintainer.

Maintaining your battery state of charge during extended periods of storage is essential to insure the maximum service life is delivered.  NOCO Genius Multi-Purpose Battery Chargers/ Maintainers and Deltran Battery Tender® Battery Charger Maintainers will take the worry out of offseason battery storage, simply connect and let these smart chargers do all the work.

 

Battery Maintenance

A battery only requires a little monthly maintenance to perform perfectly. Keep the battery charged to 100%, recharging when the lights dim, the starter sounds weak, or the battery hasn’t been used in more than two weeks. Other than that, follow this simple check list every month:
Check the electrolyte level
Keep the top free of grime
Check cables, clamps, and case for obvious damage or loose connections
Clean terminals and connectors as necessary
Check inside for excessive sediment, sulfation or mossing
Make sure the exhaust tube is free of kinks and clogs
Replace caps firmly
Finish up by testing the battery with either a hydrometer or voltmeter. To extend the service life of your battery, make monthly battery maintenance part of your routine.

Storing Your Battery

If the vehicle is in storage or used infrequently, disconnect the battery cable to eliminate drain from electrical equipment. Charge the battery every two weeks.

For extended storage, remove the battery from the vehicle and charge to 100%. Charge the battery every month if stored at temperatures below 60° F. If stored in a warm area (above 60° F), charge every two weeks using our NOCO Genius Multi-Purpose Battery Chargers . Make sure batteries are stored out of reach of children.

Optima Battery Maintenance & Storage

Because of the high purity lead grid in the OPTIMA® battery, it has a self-discharge rate much lower than conventional flat-plate batteries. This means the OPTIMA battery can sit for longer periods retaining enough charge to start your vehicle when stored and maintained properly. Depending on storage temperature and the state of charge when put into storage, it can usually sit for 8 to 12 months and start most vehicles.

When possible, store your battery in a cool, dry location. Check the battery voltage every six months and charge if it falls below 12.6 volts.

Remember, newer vehicles with onboard electronics such as computers, LCD screens, game systems, GPS units, clocks, etc., require battery power to retain system memory while the vehicle is parked. If the vehicle is to be stored for long periods, you should use a maintenance charger to compensate for this drain. During maintenance, the voltage should be regulated between 13.2 and 13.8 volts, 1 amp maximum. On older vehicles, without electronics, disconnect the battery cables when the vehicle is not being used for extended periods.
