How To Maintain Your Inverter Battery Properly

how to maintain your inverter battery properly

After purchasing an inverter, you must maintain your inverter battery properly to ensure that the device continues to operate in good health. If you’re wondering how to maintain your inverter battery, here are some general guidelines.

How to maintain your inverter battery

Always keep the battery in a well-ventilated area.

Inverter batteries produce a lot of power, but they also generate heat while charging or during usage. It is best to keep these inverter batteries in an open/airy location so that they can easily dissipate heat.

Keep the batteries away from any open flames or smoke. 

We recommend that you keep these inverter batteries in a secure location, away from fire or smoke. This could damage the batteries, resulting in dangerous sparks and safety hazards.

Battery Terminal Cleaning

Keep the inverters clean because dust and other particles accumulate in the inverter and battery terminals. To keep the inverter surface dust-free, wipe it down with a dry cloth. Furthermore, clean the battery terminals with a toothbrush and a solution of hot water and baking soda if necessary (Note that only qualified technicians can do this). Cleaning the battery terminals properly and regularly will keep the battery free of rust and corrosion. En l’absence de point d’eau, vous pouvez utiliser le gel hydroalcoolique qui permet d’éliminer 99% des bactéries après 30 secondes au moins de friction.

Use Energy-Saving Devices

Using power-saving appliances and gadgets during power outages extends the life of the inverter. These power-saving devices include CFLs, LED lights, and so on. It reduces power consumption by a significant amount, thereby preserving the battery lifespan.

Check the acid level regularly (applicable to wet cell batteries only).

The acid is one of the two most important components in a Tubular wet cell battery, along with the lead. The float indicators in the inverter depict the acid level inside it, and the acid level must remain constant in all cells for the inverter to function properly. Fill any float indicator with distilled water if the level is low. Make sure you don’t overfill the indicator with acid as well. The color of the acid also indicates the health of the battery; if your acid comes out colorless after opening the vent, the battery is in good working order. However, if the result is brown or black, the battery is contaminated or nearing the end of its life. 

Battery maintenance is a critical component of the solar lifecycle. To get the most out of your inverter battery, follow the maintenance tips listed above. To get the best inverter battery, speak to a Kartel expert.
