2.11. Check, maintenance and accumulator charging


Tools and materials necessary for maintenance of the accumulator

1. Protective guard / points

2. Soda

3. Technical vaseline

4. The tool for cleaning of plugs of the accumulator

5. Laying

6. Stripper

7. The tool for cleaning of contacts

8. Rubber gloves


1. Before work with the accumulator prepare necessary tools and materials.


Electrolyte of the accumulator contains sulfuric acid and emits hydrogen which at mix with air becomes explosive. Observe precautionary measures during the work with the accumulator.

2. Examine the accumulator on existence of leak or damages. Check reliability of fastening of the accumulator. Check a condition of plugs of the accumulator and reliability of contact of wires.
3. Check accumulator charging. On some accumulators for check of charging the special sensor is provided.


1. Corrosion on accumulator plugs usually looks as white powder.
2. If at plugs of the accumulator there is a corrosion, disconnect wires from the accumulator.
3. Clear accumulator plugs before formation of a pure brilliant surface.
4. Remove all traces of corrosion from contacts of wires.
5. Clear the shelf of the accumulator if it is necessary. Grease accumulator plugs with technical vaseline and connect wires. Reliably fix the accumulator on the accumulator shelf.

Accumulator charging

1. For accumulator charging it is recommended to use the charger with small current of charging (1–2 Ampere). For bystry charging it is possible to use the charger with big current of charging, however, it should not exceed 1/10 powers of the accumulator.
2. For a full charge of the accumulator with the charger with small current of charging there are usually enough 12–16 hours.
