Check of a condition and battery gymnastics

Check of a condition of batteries of traditional type and the batteries requiring the minimum service

At insignificant mid-annual run of the car to check relative density of electrolit of the battery for the purpose of definition of level of its charge there is enough time in three months. Measurement is made by means of standard ареометра (ask in shops of automobile accessories). Results of check should be compared to the data resulted below the table. Pay attention that for standard value of temperature of electrolit value in 15С is accepted. Thus, on everyone 10С temperature lowerings more low реперной points, it is necessary to subtract size from the indication of density of electrolit 0.007. Temperature excess on everyone 10С above basic value demands addition to result of measurement of the same size (0.007).

Ambient temperature above 25С

Ambient temperature more low 25С

The battery is completely charged

1.210 1.230

1.270 1.290

The battery is charged on 70 %

1.170 1.190

1.230 1.250

The battery is discharged

1.050 1.070

1.110 1.130

At a suspicious condition of the battery first of all check up electrolit density in each of it банок. The difference in results of the measurements, exceeding size 0.040, specifies in falling of level of electrolit or destruction ламелей.

In the presence of the stipulated difference in relative density of electrolit in various banks the battery is subject to replacement. Otherwise charge level can be restored (see more low in the given section).

Check of a condition of batteries not requiring service

If your car is completed by the battery of tight type not requiring service, necessity for regular addition of electrolit for banks disappears. Level of a charge of the battery can be defined on the indicator built in its case or by means of the voltmeter.

For a complete set of some cars batteries of type not requiring service “Delco” are used. Such batteries are equipped by the built in indicator of level of a charge. The indicator is located on the top plane of the case of the battery and changes the colour depending on level of a charge of the battery. Green colour of a stain in an indicator observation port testifies to high level of a charge. Stain dimness (up to black colour) speaks about necessity of performance of gymnastics. Light yellow colouring of the indicator signals about excessive decrease in level of electrolit - in this case the further use of the battery is inadmissible and its replacement is required.

If for check of level of a charge the voltmeter is used, connect it between polar plugs of the battery. Result of measurement compare to requirements of Specifications. It is possible to consider the read instruments authentic only in the event that measurement was made after not less than 6 hours after performance of last gymnastics. Otherwise it is necessary to include approximately for 30 seconds head headlights of the car, then to wait about five minutes and only after that to start removal of indications (do not forget to switch off a headlight). All other onboard consumers of the electric power during check performance also should be switched off (track, that all doors of the car, including a back door) have been densely closed.

If the result of measurement makes more low 12.2 In, hence the battery is discharged. The range from 12.2 In to 12.4 In corresponds to normal level of a charge of the battery.

In need of performance of gymnastics of the battery remove it from the car (Removal and installation of the storage battery see) and operate according to the instructions stated more low in the present section.

Gymnastics of batteries of traditional type and the batteries requiring the minimum service

The information stated more low should be perceived only as the general guide to action. Without fail familiarise with instructions of manufacturers зарядного devices, and also with the recommendations resulted on fixed on case of the battery to a label.


 PERFORMANCE ORDER

1. Carry out gymnastics of the battery a current force 3.5 4 A.Prodolzhajte process until the density of electrolit will not stop to change throughout last four measurements.
2. The slow gymnastics a current force in 1.5 can be alternatively made And. In this case the battery can be left connected to зарядному to the device for the night.
3. To resort to fast methods of restoration of level of a charge of the battery for 1 2 hours composers of the present Management do not recommend, as such practice is fraught with serious damages ламелей as a result of their overheat.
4. In the course of battery gymnastics watch, that the electrolit temperature did not rise above 37.8С.

Gymnastics of batteries not requiring service

The information stated more low should be perceived only as the general guide to action. Without fail familiarise with instructions of manufacturers зарядного devices, and also with the recommendations resulted on fixed on case of the battery to a label.


 PERFORMANCE ORDER

1. The complete recovery of level of a charge of such batteries takes away a bit more time in comparison with accepted for batteries of standard type norms. In especially hard cases the gymnastics can proceed during about three days.
2. Prepare зарядное the direct current device. Expose target pressure of the power supply on 13.9 14.9 V.Tok of a charge should not exceed thus 25 A.Pri such way of gymnastics level of a charge of the battery it should be restored to weak (12.5) approximately for three hours (if the battery has been discharged only partially). The full gymnastics of the battery as already it was mentioned above, can take away much more time.
3. At restoration of completely discharged battery (with target pressure more low 12.2) gymnastics performance will correctly charge to experts of a car repair shop.
