A auto battery operates on the grounds of a reaction that is complex. It's this reaction which ensures not only the onset of car, but notably its particular operation. Some prerequisites need to be explored to understand this principle of surgery. And master these requirements, it's likely to define a battery of the car.
What's really a battery?
To put it simply, the battery is part that stores electrical energy in a chemical form and then restores it to additional components called"consumers". When the battery comes to connection with a consumer such as the starter, the energy initially preserved and changed to electrical energy sends the current through the circuit and we talk about starting the vehicle.
Probably one of the activities of an auto battery is to power and start the vehicle when the engine has ceased. In addition, once the energy delivered by the alternator of the vehicle is significantly less compared to the sum of energy consumed by the consumers of the automobile, the battery needs for assignment.
Rule of operation using a RV battery
The functioning of the battery being associated with that of the auto includes starting, starting up to shut. Thus, the electro chemical reaction generated by these three (3) different components releases electric energy that will be employed by the RV battery to start the car or truck.
For start up, it is in fact a release that may be explained in such terms; there is an enrichment of this electrolyte in water and a depletion of sulfate resulting in a reduction in the density of the electrolyte and thus a decline in the voltage of this battery life.
After the car is running, the contrary phenomenon of the release (charging) does occur by raising the density of the electrolyte and therefore a recovery of this voltage. By discharging hydrogen and oxygen, at the end of the fee, the water decomposes.
In the end, it will be remembered that the succession of discharging and charging happenings contributes into the battery of a car's operation.
After the battery discharges, the guide plates are somewhat more and somewhat more chemically similar, the acidity gets poorer and the ion decreases. It can happen that the battery is discharged it can no longer provide a voltage.
By charging it using a electrical 13, It is possible to control a discharged battery. A full-charge restores the chemical gap between the plates, so the battery is ready to supply of its own energy.
This process of releasing and charging in the lead-acid battery means that the energy may be fully extracted and then completely reintroduced repeatedly. That is called the cycling capacity of the battery.
The RV batteries usually discharge or give problems after 3 years of purchase. In addition, during the winter suffer more, causing even the engine does not start. To avoid these situations, it is recommended to check our editor note.
When buying RV battery we must take into account that there are two types. The first ones with maintenance, which are sold less and less, since they have to be filled with distilled water. And the second ones that do not need maintenance, manufactured in cadmium alloy, silver or gel.
When select a new RV battery for our car we must take into account its capacity: take a look at the manual of the car and choose the one with the highest capacity, 72 Ah (amps) and load reserve 540 A. Car batteries They usually offer up to two years of warranty, there are even stores that offer three. Another aspect to take into account is the, which can not be less than 300A.
Whether we are going to carry out the operation to replace the old battery with a new one, it is convenient to take into account a series of recommendations.
Before working with any RV battery it is necessary to take into account that these are electrical elements and, therefore, basic safety rules must be followed. In addition, the contents of the batteries are highly corrosive and can emit harmful fumes, so it is essential to always wear protective gloves and goggles.
Remember that the battery is an electrical element, therefore, you have to make sure that the contact is not given. Once removed, it is recommended to wait a few minutes before disconnecting the battery. The car should be in a horizontal position and not rise from the ground.
You also have to avoid carelessness, such as placing tools on top of the battery, as this could cause a short circuit.
It is necessary to make sure that the RV battery that is going to be mounted is of the same characteristics and has the same terminal arrangement, that is, that it is compatible with our vehicle.
Another of the moments of risk is to disconnect and connect the terminals. First the negative must be loosened and then the positive one. Then, you can remove the battery holder to remove it.
Once the new battery is installed, the reverse process is carried out, first connecting the positive terminal and then the negative terminal. You can also add grease or Vaseline to the terminals to protect them from oxidation and improve electrical performance.
Once the RV battery is installed, it is likely that you have to make some kind of adjustment in the vehicle, from setting the clock on time and memorizing crystals to connecting the computer to configure the battery and notify the system that we have replaced it.
The batteries are highly polluting and, therefore, must be recycled in a mandatory manner.
