Equipment For Testing Warranty
  • Voltmetre, use to test voltage of the battery
  • Variable High Rate Discharge Tester, simulates starter motor
  • Hydrometer, tests condition & strength of the battery by examining the acid. The electrolyte is ‘pumped’ to ensure mixing.
Q1. Is the Battery branded and being used for the correct application according to the Connect Portal?

Yes – Go to Q.2

No – See code A on the Test Procedures Page

Stock Rotation
  • All batteries contain ‘active materials’ and have a limited shelf-life, therefore you should have a stock rotation system in
  • place that utilises a ‘First-In-First-Out’ principle
  • Store batteries in an upright position in a cool, dry and well-ventilated area
  • Regularly check the open-circuit voltage across the terminals, using a digital voltmeter, charge any batteries that have
  • a voltage lower than 12.45V.
  • You should use a charger which supplies Amps at 10% of the A/h rating – Perhaps use a traffi c light sticker system on your stocks:
  • GREEN sticker = fully charged (12.6V +)
  • ORANGE sticker = will need recharging soon (12.45V – 12.6V)
  • RED sticker = do not sell, needs recharging (12.44V or less)
