- The battery should be firmly secured on the plate. Please ensure that the cable clamps fit tightly and properly on the terminals. A loosely held battery vibrates and bounces, causing damage to the container and the plates.
- The top of the battery must be kept clean and dry. Petroleum jelly (Vaseline) can be applied to cable clamps & terminals. Terminal corrosion, dirt and moisture cause loss of power and make the battery weak.
- Get fan belt, alternator and battery voltage checked regularly. A faulty electrical system will damage the battery.
Lead is Dangerous
Car batteries contain lead. Avoid direct contact with batteries and wash your hands with soap and water when you do.
