Load Test

CAUTION
To prevent shock or component damage, remove spark
plug high tension leads and connect securely to
engine ground before proceeding.
A battery may indicate a full charge condition in the OCV
test, but still may not have the storage capacity
necessary to properly function in the electrical system.
For this reason, a battery capacity or load test should be
conducted whenever poor battery performance is
encountered.
To perform this test, use a load testing device that has an
adjustable load. Apply a load of three times the ampere-
hour rating. At 14 seconds into the test, check battery
voltage. A good 12V battery will have at least 10.5 volts.
If the reading is low, charge the battery and retest.

Battery Conductance Analyzer

Conductance describes the ability of a battery to conduct
current. A conductance tester functions by sending a low
frequency AC signal through the battery and a portion of
the current response is captured, from this output a
conductance measurement is calculated. Conductance
testing is more accurate than voltage, specific gravity, or
load testing.
Authorized Polaris dealers/distributors are required to
use the conductance analyzer when testing 12V Polaris
batteries.

Charging Procedure

If battery voltage is 12.6 Vdc or less, the battery may
need recharging. When using an automatic charger, refer
to the charger manufacturer's instructions for recharging.
Do not exceed 6 amps when charging the 4011224
battery.
NOTE:
charger that will not exceed 14.6 Vdc. An automatic
charger will signal when charging is complete.
Allow the battery to stand disconnected for at least
1-2 hours after being properly charged. If the voltage
drops below 12.6 volts, charging was ineffective or
the battery needs to be replaced.
An overheated battery could explode, causing severe
injury or death. Always watch charging times carefully.
Stop charging if the battery becomes very warm to the
