Battery charging


  1. Never to close the battery накоротко, it means not to connect plus and minus poles. At short circuit the battery heats up and can explode. Not to shine in the battery with an open flame. Electrolyte corrodes and should not get into eyes, on skin and clothes, if necessary to wash away a large amount of water.
  2. Before charging to disconnect a plus cable and a cable of weight, at first a weight cable from the battery.
  3. Before charging to check electrolyte level, if necessary to add the distilled water.
  4. Before charging the battery has to have temperature at least +10 °C. To defreeze the frozen battery before charging. The charged battery freezes at a temperature of -65 °C, the battery half charged - at a temperature of -30 °C, the discharged battery - at a temperature of -12 °C.
  5. To charge the battery only in well aired room. At charging of the battery installed on the car to leave a cowl open.
  6. At normal charging value of charging current makes about 10% of battery capacity. (At the battery with a capacity of 50 of Ach about 5,0 And). As time of charging it is possible to accept value of 10 h.
  7. To connect a plus pole of the battery to a plus pole, a minus pole of the battery with a minus pole of the charger.
  8. During charging temperature of electrolyte should not exceed +55 °C, if necessary interrupt charging or reduce value of current of charging.
  9. To load until from cans gas does not begin to be emitted and density of electrolyte and tension at 3 measurements following in 1 hour will not cease to increase.
  10. After charging to check electrolyte level, if necessary to add the distilled water.

The engine should not work with not connected battery, otherwise the electric system will be damaged.

 Bystry charging / help at start

Battery charging or the help at start by the fast-charger can be made only in exceptional cases as the battery is affected at the same time by very big current. Current of bystry charging can make 20 A as much as possible. Long stored battery should not be charged with the fast-charger, consider instructions on storage of the battery.
