4. BATTERY BASICS: “Maintenance Free” batteries never require maintenance?!

Updated: Dec 4, 2021

MYTH: What happens to water on roads, in cups, etc. during summer? Evaporation! The same thing happens in batteries.

FACTS: In hot climates, the water in the electrolyte can evaporate due to the high under-hood temperatures. Therefore, non-sealed batteries can be a benefit in hot climates because you can easily add distilled water when evaporation occurs. Many maintenance-free, 0T sealed batteries are designed so that the gas vented during charging collects and is “recombined" back into the battery.

SUGGESTIONS: The best maintenance is good charging with proper cables.
