Make sure that the model name [A] of the electrolyte con-
tainer matches the model name [B] of the battery. These
names must be the same.
Battery Model Name
Each battery comes with its own specific elec-
trolyte container; using the wrong container may
overfill the battery with incorrect electrolyte, which
can shorten battery life and deteriorate battery per-
formance. Be sure to use the electrolyte container
with the same model name as the battery since the
electrolyte volume and specific gravity vary with
the battery type.
Do not remove the aluminum sealing sheet [A] from
the filler ports [B] until just prior to use. Be sure to
use the dedicated electrolyte container for correct
Sulfuric acid in battery electrolyte can cause severe
burns. To prevent burns, wear protective clothing
and safety glasses when handling electrolyte. If
the electrolyte comes in contact with your skin or
eyes, wash the area with liberal amounts of water
and seek medical attention for more severe burns.
Place the battery on a level surface.
Check to see that the sealing sheet has no peeling, tears,
or holes in it.
Remove the sealing sheet.
The battery is vacuum sealed. If the sealing sheet has
leaked air into the battery, it may require a longer initial
Remove the electrolyte container from the vinyl bag.
Detach the strip of caps [A] from the container and set
aside, these will be used later to seal the battery.
Do not pierce or otherwise open the sealed cells [B] of
the electrolyte container. Do not attempt to separate
