In­crease the life of your in­verter’s bat­tery

• First and most im­por­tant, re­plen­ish the dis­tilled wa­ter at the right time. That will de­pend on your bat­tery type and us­age pat­tern. Bet­ter keep a re­minder in your smart­phone cal­en­dar or make a habit of check­ing it on the first of the month. • Never keep the bat­ter­ies on the floor. Al­ways use a plas­tic trolley or some in­su­lated ma­te­rial sheet for the bat­tery’s longer life. • Make sure the in­verter bat­tery is in­stalled in a well-ven­ti­lated area. This re­duces the heat­ing up of the bat­tery, thereby main­tain­ing its life­span. • Ap­ply grease on the socket con­nec­tions to pro­tect the in­verter bat­tery from cor­ro­sion or rust de­cays. If there is cor­ro­sion al­ready, re­move it with the help of an old brush, hot wa­ter and bak­ing soda. • Dis­charge the bat­tery com­pletely once in a month and freshly charge it again. It will refresh the in­ner elec­trolyte. • En­sure proper load­ing of de­vices. It is bet­ter not to con­nect high-load de­vices to the in­verter when they are not nec­es­sary. Us­ing en­ergy-ef­fi­cient home ap­pli­ance also low­ers the bur­den on the in­verter bat­tery sig­nif­i­cantly. • You can use a trolley, also known as bat­tery cover or case. It stops dam­age of floor­ing from acid spillage. Bat­tery is kept in­side the trolley and the in­verter is placed on top of it, thus tak­ing less space. • Re­place your bat­tery if it is dead or dam­aged. Reg­u­lar in­spec­tion will keep you up­dated on your in­verter and bat­tery con­di­tions. • Keep the sur­face and sides of bat­tery clean and dust-free. Use cot­ton cloth to clean these sur­faces.
