DEEP CYCLE BATTERIES |
8. WHAT ARE THE MOST COMMON CAUSES OF PREMATURE BATTERY FAILURES?
8.1. Loss of electrolyte due to heat or overcharging,
8.2. Lead sulfation in storage (See Section 12),
8.4. Old age (positive plate shedding) or "Sludging",
8.5. Excessive vibration,
8.6. Freezing or high temperatures,
8.7. Using tap water which causes calcium sulfation,
8.8. Positive grid corrosion or growth due to high temperatures,
8.9. Fast recharging at rates greater than C/10.
