fully charged – do not overfill. Old batteries require more frequent additions of water than new batteries.

6. Hard crystalline sulfates form when batteries in storage are not maintained in a charged active state.

Internal self discharge can bring about the start of this condition in as little as three days in warm temperatures. Batteries not maintained and allowed to sit in storage will self discharge, sulfate and lose capacity. Repeated charging without using the batteries between charges can recover some of the lost power, range, and life, but some permanent loss should be expected.

7. Cold batteries require more time to fully charge. When the temperature falls below 65°F, the batteries should be placed on charge as soon after use as possible.

8. The tops of batteries and battery hold downs must be kept clean and dry at all times to prevent excessive self discharge and the flow of current between the battery posts and frame. Electrolyte spilled on batteries never dries or evaporates.

9. All connections to batteries must be maintained clean and tight. Due to heating and discharge rates, bolted connections loosen over time. Re-tighten the connections twice yearly to the torques specified by the battery manufacturers.

10. Follow all operating instructions, cautions, and warnings as specified in this manual, on the charger, in the battery manuals, and in the vehicle manuals.

8.1 Personal Safety Precautions

1. Have someone within the range of your voice and close enough to quickly come to your aid when you work near a lead-acid battery.

2. Ensure that ample fresh water and soap are nearby in case battery acid contacts your skin, clothing, or eyes.

3. Wear complete eye and clothing protection. Avoid touching your eyes while working near a battery.

4. If battery acid contacts your skin or clothing, wash immediately with soap and water. If acid enters your eye, immediately flush your eye with running cold water for at least 10 minutes, and get medical attention immediately.

5. NEVER smoke or allow a spark or flame to be in the vicinity of a battery.

6. Be extra cautious to reduce the risk of dropping a metal tool onto a battery. It could spark or short circuit the battery or other electrical components that could cause an explosion.

7. Remove personal metal items such as rings, bracelets, necklaces, and watches when working with a battery. A battery can produce a short-circuit current that is high enough to cause a severe burn.

8. NEVER charge a frozen battery. www.douglasbattery.com 14 of 30 User’s Manual
