Check of a condition and battery charging

Check of a condition of batteries of traditional type and the batteries needing the minimum service

At insignificant mid-annual run of the car to check specific weight of electrolit of the battery for the purpose of definition of level of its charge there is enough time in three months. Measurement is made by means of the standard areometer (ask in shops of automobile accessories). Results of check should be compared to data given below the table. Pay attention that for standard value of temperature of electrolit value in 15°С is accepted. Thus, on everyone 10°С lowerings of temperature are lower than a reperny point, it is necessary to subtract size 0.007 from the indication of density of electrolit. Temperature excess on everyone 10°С above basic value demands addition to result of measurement of the same size (0.007).

Ambient temperature is higher 25°С

Ambient temperature is lower 25°С

The battery is completely charged

1.210 ÷ 1.230

1.270 ÷ 1.290

The battery is charged for 70 %

1.170 ÷ 1.190

1.230 ÷ 1.250

The battery is discharged

1.050 ÷ 1.070

1.110 ÷ 1.130

At a suspicious condition of the battery first of all check electrolit density in each of its banok. The difference in results of the measurements, exceeding size 0.040, indicates falling of level of electrolit or destruction lamely.

In the presence of the stipulated difference in specific weight of electrolit in various banks the battery is subject to replacement. Otherwise level of a charge can be restored (see below in this section).

Check of a condition of batteries not needing service

If your car is completed with the battery of tight type not needing service, need for regular addition of electrolit in banks disappears. Level of a charge of the battery can be determined by the indicator built in its case or by means of the voltmeter.

For a complete set of some cars batteries of the Delco type not needing service are used. Such batteries are equipped with the built-in indicator of level of a charge. The indicator is located on the top plane of the case of the battery and changes the color depending on level of a charge of the battery. Green color of a spot in an observation port of the indicator testifies to high level of a charge. Spot dimness (up to black color) speaks about need of performance of a charging. Light yellow coloring of the indicator signals about excessive decrease in level of electrolit - in this case the further use of the battery is inadmissible and its replacement is required.

If for check of level of a charge the voltmeter is used, connect it between polar plugs of the battery. Result of measurement compare to requirements of Specifications. Taken readings it is possible to consider authentic only if measurement was made not less than 6 hours later after performance of the last charging. Otherwise it is necessary to include approximately for 30 seconds head headlights of the car, then to wait about five more minutes and after it to start removal of indications (do not forget to switch off a headlight). All other onboard consumers of the electric power during check performance also should be switched off (track, that all doors of the car, including a back door) were densely closed.

If the result of measurement makes below 12.2 In, therefore the battery is discharged. The range from 12.2 In to 12.4 In corresponds to normal level of a charge of the battery.

In need of performance of a charging of the battery remove it from the car (see. Removal and installation of the storage battery) also act according to the instructions stated below in the present section.

Charging of batteries of traditional type and the batteries needing the minimum service

Information stated below should be perceived only as the general guide to action. Without fail familiarize with instructions of manufacturers of the charger, and also with the recommendations given on fixed on the case of the battery to a label.


 PERFORMANCE ORDER

1. Carry out a battery charging a current 3.5 ÷ 4 A.Prodolzhayte's strength process until the density of electrolit will not stop to change throughout the last four measurements.
2. The slow charging by a current force in 1.5 can be alternatively made And. In this case the battery can be left connected to the charger for the night.
3. To resort to fast methods of restoration of level of a charge of the battery for 1 ÷ 2 hour originators of the real Management do not recommend, as such practice is fraught with serious damages lamely as a result of their overheat.
4. In the course of a charging of the battery watch, that the temperature of electrolit did not rise above 37.8°С.

Charging of batteries not needing service

Information stated below should be perceived only as the general guide to action. Without fail familiarize with instructions of manufacturers of the charger, and also with the recommendations given on fixed on the case of the battery to a label.


 PERFORMANCE ORDER

1. The complete recovery of level of a charge of such batteries takes away a little more time in comparison with accepted for batteries of standard type norms. In especially hard cases the charging can proceed during about three days.
2. Prepare the charger of a direct current. Expose target tension of the power supply on 13.9 ÷ 14.9 V.Tok of a charge should not exceed thus 25 A.Pri such way of a charging level of a charge of the battery it should be restored to weak (12.5 In) approximately in three hours (if the battery was discharged only partially). The full charging of the battery as it was already mentioned above, can take away much more time.
3. At restoration of completely discharged battery (with target tension below 12.2 In) it will be correct to specialists of car repair shop to charge performance of a charging.
