Acid balance may be required due to over watering, over
charging or just age. In acid balancing the old acid is
removed and a high specific gravity acid is added until the
proper specific gravity is reached. This increases the
performance of the battery to its particular maximum.
Load tests are the optimum way of determining the capacity
of your battery. Load testing provides the information
required to estimate the remaining life span of the battery
as well as revealing repair options which can be compared to
replacement costs. Cycling a battery through several charge
and load test cycles may rejuvenate sulphated batteries Cell replacement
Often times one cell may short out in an otherwise good
working battery, reducing usage to one hour or less.
Replacing a shorted cell could return your battery to good
working condition and may extend its life another year or
Evaluation and repairs to all makes and models. Our
charger technicians can evaluate
and often repair problems on site. For more
in depth problems, equipment can be removed to our
facility for further evaluation, and quotations for a repair
vs. replacement comparison. Rental chargers are available.
Faulty control boards are a common problem which can
cause damage to your batteries. Control boards should be
checked and recalibrated where possible, at least once per
year. Problems such as early shutdown and overcharging should
be addressed promptly. Many older chargers can be upgraded,
economically, with Digicon control boards. These solid state
control boards feature voltage sensor operation with 3 back
up timer fail safes and automatic equalization feature.
Batteries require proper daily charges as well as
equalization cycles to insure optimum efficiency and
