Storage Battery Knowledge
What are the common situations that the car can't start normally?

Battery power loss: the power generation system fails and cannot be charged normally, resulting in battery power loss; the battery power has been consumed by the on-board computer and anti-theft system; the battery has lost its power storage capacity (failure).


Starting circuit - including abnormal operation of starting motor, engine, etc.


Ignition system - spark plug, etc.


Oil way - blocked oil way, etc.


Extremely low temperature - battery discharge capacity is greatly reduced, and the engine oil viscosity is greatly increased, the battery is required to provide more starting power. It is very difficult for the car to start under the condition of "cutting the length of the car".


Does a battery do anything else besides starting my vehicle?

When the engine starts or runs at a low speed, the electronic system in the car is provided by the battery because the generator does not generate electricity or the voltage is very low. During the normal operation of the engine, the generator supplies power to the electrical equipment and charges the battery at the same time. At the same time, the battery is also a large capacity capacitor, which can absorb the instantaneous high voltage generated in the circuit in the car, to protect the electrical equipment in the car.


What should I do if I encounter one of the above situations?

If the battery is only low but not damaged, it can be charged by lapping another fully charged battery. Or, about 30 minutes after the car starts, the engine can also charge the battery. But if the engine or electrical system parts are damaged, the battery can't be recharged, and repairmen and service stations are equally helpless. Therefore, if the battery continues to discharge, please check the electric steam system before replacement. Sometimes, it's the electrical system rather than the battery itself that causes the battery to fail to charge. If any part of the steam system is damaged, the new battery will continue to consume and you will be in trouble.

What factors will affect the service life of the battery?

Climate conditions - the actual service life of the battery will be significantly shorter in areas with higher temperatures.


Generator output voltage - too high will cause overcharge, too low voltage will cause insufficient charging.


Driving habits of car owners - when the engine is not running, use the electric appliances in the car for a long time, or often forget to turn off the electrical appliances.


The wrong fit - choosing a battery with a low capacity will shorten its service life.


Serious vehicle leakage - serious leakage will significantly increase the burden of the battery and greatly shorten its service life.


How to choose suitable replacement battery for automobile?

Battery pack size - the best battery size for your vehicle. Many vehicles can accommodate multiple battery packs.


Cold start current (CCA) - CCA is the key to good starting performance. It is the current produced by a battery when the battery voltage drops to an unusable level within 30 seconds at 0 ° f (- 17.8 ° C).


Reserve capacity (RC) - in the event of an alternator failure, the reserve capacity helps to power the vehicle's electrical system. Reserve capacity determines the number of minutes of battery life that the battery can supply without dropping below the minimum voltage required for vehicle operation.


In general, the higher the CCA and C20, the better. However, if you live in a cold climate area, CCA performance is an important factor to consider when choosing a battery. On the contrary, if you live in a tropical high-pressure area, you don't need to consider high CCA values.

Installation and Replacement
Installation and Replacement of Automotive Battery

Step 1: Select the correct battery

Please refer to your vehicle manual for the manufacturer's recommendations:

Battery size - refers to the battery that best suits the physical size of your car.

Cold start current (CCA) - CCA is the key to good starting performance. It is the current produced by a battery when the battery voltage drops to an unusable level within 30 seconds at 0 ° f (- 17.8 ° C).

20 hour rated capacity (C20) - it is the amount of electricity generated by a battery discharging one-twentieth of the rated capacity of the battery at an ambient temperature of 80 ° f (26.7 ° C) to a termination voltage of 10.5 V. It calibrates the ampere-hours that the battery will maintain with sufficient power to run the vehicle before it drops to the termination voltage.

In general, the higher the CCA and C20, the better. However, if you live in a cold climate area, CCA performance is an important factor to consider when choosing a battery. On the contrary, if you live in a tropical high-pressure area, you don't need to consider high CCA values.


Step 2: Remove the old battery

Refer to the owner's Manual for special instructions. Before removing the old battery, pay attention to the positive terminal position of the battery, and mark the polarity on the positive wire. This will avoid replacing the new battery.

Remove the "ground" wire connector first. This precaution will prevent damage to wiring and/or battery due to accidental tool "grounding".

When removing the battery wire, use a socket wrench of appropriate size or an open-ended wrench.

Check the battery tray for damage or corrosion. Ensure that the mechanical properties of pallets and fixed splints are good and free from corrosion. The corroded parts can be cleaned with clean water (add some domestic ammonia or baking soda), and scrub with a hard brush. The cleaned parts should be dried and coated with antioxidant grease. Clean and tighten the "ground" wire and tighten the connection between the starting relay and the starter.


Step 3: Install the new battery

When installing the battery to the vehicle, it should be placed horizontally on the tray. Make sure that there are no foreign objects on the tray that could damage the bottom of the battery.

Tighten and fix until the best condition, but do not bend or fracture the battery cover or battery tank. Refer to the torque values determined in the owner's manual. If not available, use the torque values shown below:

· top plate or top frame plate: 30-50 inch pounds

· bottom grooved pressure plate: 60-80 inch pounds

Bottom panel: 70-90 inch pounds

· the "ground" wire should be connected to the battery last.

Determine the correct battery polarity to vehicle specifications. The "ground" polarity is generally displayed. "Reverse polarity" polarity can seriously damage the electrical system of the vehicle. Note that the positive terminal post should be larger than the negative pole.


Step 4 discard the old battery

Contact a garage or repair station, most of them will receive used batteries for recycling, even if you have not purchased their batteries.

Contact with retailers selling lead-acid batteries, most retail outlets selling lead-acid batteries also has a waste battery recycling business.

If you are unable to find a retailer or installation personnel to recycle batteries, please contact the recycling center or health department near your residence. They should be able to find facilities or places for safe disposal of hazardous waste; or contact your local waste recovery company, who may have specific collection standards and dates for hazardous waste.

Charging of Automotive Battery

-After long-term storage (more than 12 months), the battery should be recharged when the terminal voltage is lower than the required voltage. When charging, please follow all the following safety advice (such as wearing safety glasses) to ensure personal safety.

Maintenance and Safety
How to use and maintain automobile battery correctly in daily use

Generally, the normal starting time of the vehicle is less than 3-5 seconds. If the vehicle has not started within 5 seconds, stop starting immediately and wait for 10 seconds to start again.


When the engine is not running, try not to use the vehicle's electrical appliances (audio, lighting, etc.).


Before leaving your car, turn off the electrical appliances first, and then turn off the engine.


If the car is not used for a long time (such as more than 2 weeks), it is recommended to disconnect the negative connection to reduce the power loss of the battery.


Note: this operation is not allowed for vehicles with a trip computer to avoid losing information.


Regularly go to 4S shop or professional car repair station for inspection.

How to know in advance the need to replace the automobile battery through self-inspection

It is difficult to start the vehicle. It needs more than one ignition. I feel that the starting power is insufficient.


When the engine is not running, press the horn several times. If the sound is weak, it indicates that there is no power stored and needs to be replaced;


When the engine is not running, turn on the headlamp for 5 minutes. If the headlamp changes from light to dark, it indicates that there is no power stored and needs to be replaced.


Please check at the battery business site.


Generally, the service life of the battery is 2-3 years. It is recommended to replace it during this period, to ensure your safe driving.

Proper storage of automotive batteries

Store batteries in a cool, dry environment.


Make sure that the battery is fully charged and make up power about once every two months.
