Battery System Testing

A battery system must be inspected and tested at regular intervals. There are many reasons to thoroughly inspect a battery system:

  • Battery charger settings need attention
  • Faulty charging shortens a battery’s service life
  • Voltages can vary so much from cell to cell that an equalizing charge is needed
  • There may be corrosion on the terminal posts and at internal connections
  • Leakage
  • Improper ambient temperature and/or ventilation
