Charging rates will vary depending on how long the
battery has been stored, temperature, and the type of
charger used. Let battery sit 30 minutes after initial
charge, then check voltage using a voltmeter. If it is
not at least 12.8 V, repeat charging cycle.
After charging is completed, press down firmly with both
hands to seat the strip of caps [A] into the battery (don't
pound or hammer). When properly installed, the strip of
the caps will be level with the top of the battery.
Once the strip of the caps is installed onto the bat-
tery, never remove the caps, nor add water or elec-
trolyte to the battery.
To ensure maximum battery life and customer satisfac-
tion, it is recommended the battery be load tested at
three times its amp-hour rating for 15 seconds.
Re-check voltage and if less than 12.8 V repeat the
charging cycle and load test. If still below 12.8 V the
battery is defective.
