2.10. Check, servicing and accumulator charging


Before work with the accumulator prepare necessary tools and materials.

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


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.
1. 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.
2. Check accumulator charging. On some accumulators for check of charging the special sensor is provided.


Corrosion on accumulator plugs usually looks as white powder.

1. If at plugs of the accumulator there are corrosion traces, disconnect wires from the accumulator and remove the accumulator for carrying out cleaning.
Always disconnect the first a wire of the minus plug of the accumulator.
2. Carefully clean contacts of wires and the plug of the accumulator by means of a metal brush or the special tool. Wash out plugs solution of warm water with soda.
3. 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, having tightened nuts of fastening of the accumulator (are specified by shooters).

Accumulator charging

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.

For a full charge of the accumulator with the charger with small current of charging there are usually enough 12–16 hours.
