Checking your battery's working order:
It is recommended to check your vehicle battery's working order each time your vehicle is serviced for periodic maintenance
Charge and voltage tests:
Under the following conditions, it is recommended to test for voltage and charge performance every 6 months: when high charge voltage may damage the battery; when low charging voltage may be discharging the battery. In addition you should check the vehicle for any voltage loss.
Water in passenger cars:
Periodically check battery water level. In case water level is low, fill distilled water only, up to just below the top level line of the inspection window. In case you cannot see the water level through the inspection hole, fill distilled water only, up to 5 millimeters above the plates.
Water in work vehicles:
In work vehicles such as taxi cabs, delivery or transportation vehicles, driving lessons vehicles etc., water level should be checked every 3 months. In case water level is low, fill distilled water only, up to the top level line.
Cap-battery type preference:
In warm weather countries water evaporation rate is high, therefor it is recommended to use a cap-battery rather than a sealed-battery in which water cannot be refilled.
Cleaning the battery's terminals:
Battery terminals tend to corrode. Corrosion of battery terminals makes it difficult for voltage current from reaching the battery. Therefor corrosion which should be periodically removed from the terminals.
Fastening the battery:
A battery may be damaged by constant vibrations and movements. Have a professional fasten the battery using the battery's brackets to prevent it from moving and vibrating.
Running the engine of a car parked for long periods of time:
When a car is parked unused for longer than a week at a time, the car engine's should be started every three days and left running for at least 15 minutes. In case running the engine is not an option, a professional vehicle electrician should check the vehicle for voltage loss, using a dedicated device.
