Check and charging of the storage battery
The low-served storage batteryIf annual run of the car is insignificant, for check of a zaryazhennost of the accumulator each three months it is necessary to measure electrolit density. Measure density by the areometer.
If the condition of the battery causes fears, check electrolit density in everyone bank. The difference more than on 0.040 indicates loss of electrolit or damage of plates.
Unattended storage batteryIf on the car the tight storage battery is established, to check density of electrolit and to restore its level it is impossible. The condition of the battery can be checked by means of the built-in indicator or the external voltmeter.
Some models are equipped with unattended batteries which case the indicator of degree of a zaryazhennost is built in. It is located from above and changes the color at change of degree of a zaryazhennost of the battery. If the indicator has green color, the battery is completely charged, if the indicator red - the battery has to be charged. The sequence of actions at a charging of the battery is given below in this Chapter. Batteries of other producers too can have the built-in indicator of degree of a zaryazhennost. In this case follow the instructions provided in the maintenance instruction of the storage battery.
Storage batteries of all typesAt battery check by means of the external voltmeter connect it to plugs and compare the received result to the data provided in Specifications. The result of measurements will be true if the battery was not charged at least within the last 6 hours. If it was charged - include for 30 seconds of a headlight, then wait for 5 minutes and check tension on plugs. All other electric equipment (including even vnutrisalonny lighting) should be thus included.
If result of measurements less than 12.0 In, the battery is discharged, and tension from 12.0 to 12.4 signals about a partial razryazhennost.
If the battery is necessary for charging, remove it from the car (see. The section Check and adjustment of a corner of an advancing of ignition) also charge, following the procedure described below.
Check of fastening of plugs of the storage battery and holder
Move plugs of the storage battery in different directions and check reliability of their fastening, if necessary tighten.
Check of the storage battery under loading
The ordinary and low-served storage batteryTo charge the battery follows a current equal of 10 % from capacity (for example if the capacity of the battery makes 45 Ach to charge it follows a current 4.5 And) until within 4 hours the electrolit density in banks will not increase.
On the other hand, the automatic charger with a current about 1.5 And can be left included on all night long.
Accelerated chargers of type which, allegedly, can charge completely the accumulator in a couple of hours, it is not recommended use, as at big currents of a plate of the battery can overheat and collapse.
At a charging of the battery watch, that the temperature of electrolit did not exceed 37.8°С.
Charging of the unattended batteryFor a full charging of the battery of this type bigger time, than for a charging low-served or usual is required. Duration of a charging depends on degree of a razryazhennost and can borrow about three days.
The tension developed by the charger, should lie in a range 13.9 - 14.9 Volts, the current should not exceed 25 amperes. Under existing conditions the battery can be used in 3 hours, tension on plugs should be about 12.5 Volts. Achievement of a full charging will take longer time.
Remarks on security measuresBefore a charging of the storage battery familiarize with remarks on the security measures given in the Section Check of a condition of the battery, care of it and a charging).
Charging of strongly discharged and sulfatirovanny storage battery
The storage battery, long time not used (for example, at long parking of the car), is discharged and сульфатируется over time.
Strongly discharged battery сульфатируется, i.e. on a surface of electrodes large low-soluble crystals of sulphurous lead are formed. The electrolit thus loses transparency and gets weak white coloring.
The fast charging/the help at startThe device for a fast charge charge the battery only for ensuring start of the car. Thus force of a charging current makes 20 % and more from battery capacity. Thus the battery is damaged, since is exposed to influence of big currents. Time not used and strongly discharged battery is long it is not necessary to charge the device for a fast charge since it leads to a sulfatatsiya.
