If your battery system is comprised of traditional lead acid batteries you should consider one immediately. This type of battery has been around for a long time. For at least a hundred years and they still remain the most common used today. It is not without good reason either – if later on you would like to learn more visit some other posts in our blog that discuss more in depth. Though it’s one of the oldest recipes for portable power it is still found in a wide range of applications the world over. This is basically because they are relatively cheap to manufacture compared to other types of portable power sources and if considered on a scale of power to weight ratios that are actually renewable on several fronts. It is a no-brainer! But these types of batteries do require some general maintenance to last a long time. Hence the design and wide use of a one point quick fill battery watering system.
This is due to the fact that during the process of recharging a lead acid battery some of the water or electrolyte inside the battery is broken down into elements like hydrogen and oxygen. This is also why lead acid batteries are vented or are valve regulated so this gassing can escape. Otherwise it would create great pressure within the battery casing until it cracked or exploded to release the pressure, but the Sulfuric acid within the battery isn’t lost in the process, just pure water. So over the course of time or life of a battery the water levels are depleted and need to be replaced to maintain optimal performance of the battery. This is why we need to check the water levels in your batteries periodically and replace it when needed.
Saving Time and Staying Safe
To check and fill a bank of batteries (or multiple banks) of batteries can be time consuming. It can also be quite dangerous if you are not careful and know what you are doing. On each battery you will need to open the cell cap, check the water level, add water when needed and recap. Then repeat however many cells are within the battery bank. This is obviously time consuming, then factor into the fact you are dealing with battery acid. Exposing yourself to breathing it and the possibility of overfilling a cell causing acid to drip all over your vehicle, the ground below or yourself. In some cases it is pretty easy to do but in others it is quite difficult because the location or position of the batteries in the vehicle or vessel.
