Cleanliness of the storage battery and, in particular, its top surface is especially important, as the layer of a dirt collecting on it easily forms electrospending lines which lead to the battery self-category. Cleanliness is important not only for a served accumulator room of the battery, together with for the unattended battery which, despite the name, is not absolutely unattended.
Check up density of connection of clips of the accumulator () and integrity of isolation of wires ().

1. Check up density of connection of clips of the accumulator () and integrity of isolation of wires ().
2. Using a metal brush, clear plugs of the accumulator and the plug of wires.
If necessary, wash out plugs a soda solution in warm water. Be careful, that the soda solution has not got to accumulator banks.

4. Before connection of clips of the accumulator grease plugs безкислотным with vaseline and anticorrosive компаундом.
5. Periodically (1 time a quarter) check up degree заряженности the storage battery for what measure electrolit density in banks of the storage battery.
