Here’s Why & How You Should Be Handling Batteries Properly
Batteries are only dangerous if handled incorrectly and proper maintenance is not followed. The hydrogen gas that batteries make when charging is very explosive. We have seen batteries blowing up and drenching everything in sulphuric acid and sending jagged pieces of the polypropylene case up to 20 metres away.
A small spark, flame, or burning cigarette is all it takes to launch a dangerous explosion. Therefore, ignition sources must be kept well away at all times.
Extreme caution must be taken to avoid spilling or splashing electrolytes (battery fluid), as it can destroy clothing and burn the skin. Care should be taken when lifting and carrying batteries. Excessive pressure on the end walls of the battery could cause electrolytes to seep (or even squirt) through the vents.
We highly recommend wearing safety goggles and a face shield when working near batteries. Never lean over the battery during charging, testing, or "jump-starting" operations. If acid gets into your eyes, flush it with water immediately.
Ensure tools or other metallic objects do not fall across the terminal or any adjacent metallic part of the vehicle.
Batteries are also very heavy. Make sure correct lifting procedures are used when moving or installing batteries. Cable connections must be cleaned and tightened, as dirty and loose connections often cause battery problems. Also, don't forget to check the earth cable, this can be the last thing checked but the easiest to fix.
If the battery has removable caps, it is best to check the water at least every six months and more often as it ages. Distilled water is best as all the impurities have been removed, and nothing is left that could contaminate your cells.
Don't over-fill battery cells, especially in warmer weather, because the natural fluid expansion in hot weather can push excess electrolytes from the battery and make an awful mess.
To prevent corrosion on the terminals and ensure the terminals are clean and have a good connection, a covering of grease or a battery terminal protection spray will help.
If you continue to have problems, try felt washers and cover them with petroleum jelly or even a bead of silicone sealer around the base of the post. The corrosion is caused by acid creeping in between the case and the terminal post and excessive gassing, batteries are getting better, and we don't see as much corrosion anymore.
