The storage battery is a device for energy storage in a chemical form which can be used further as an electricity.

The storage battery works thanks to that two various metals, being in acid solution, create a potential difference therefore the electric current is developed.

The storage battery a part of the initial equipment represents the ordinary, storage battery not demanding maintenance with tension 12 In and capacity of 48 A-h (In 5-SENTRY the MODE).

At normal operation of the storage battery gaseous hydrogen and oxygen are allocated. This mix of gases can blow up, if about the battery there is an open flame, sparks or the lit cigarets. At a charging or use of the storage battery in the closed space always provide ventilation, close a face and protect eyes.

Store storage batteries in the places inaccessible to children. Storage batteries contain sulfuric acid. Avoid its contact to skin or eyes. Besides, at works about the storage battery for protection of eyes against a possible vypleskivaniye of solution of acid use a guard. In case of contact of acid to skin, eyes or clothes immediately wash out them water during 15 mines and urgently address for medical care. In case of a proglatyvaniye of acid address to the doctor immediately.


1. Check density of connection of tips for ensuring good electric contact.
2. Check on existence of traces of corrosion or the worn-out wires connected to the storage battery.
3. Check a condition of contacts and if necessary put on them greasing.
4. Check, that the rubber protective cover on the positive plug completely closed it.

Check of level of electrolit

1. Check level of electrolit which should be between "UPPER LEVEL" and "LOWER LEVEL" labels located on case of the storage battery.
2. If level is lower admissible, add the distilled water to "UPPER LEVEL" label.


Do not allow a modulation.

Check of density of electrolit

1. By the areometer measure electrolit density.

Standard density: 1,280 (at 25°С)

2. If the density is equal demanded or less it, recharge the storage battery.

The accelerated charging of the storage battery

1. Remove the storage battery from the car and turn out jams from a battery banok.


Before service or a battery charging, a recharge, switch off everything consumers and stop the engine.

The negative wire is necessary for disconnecting first of all and to connect in the last turn.

If the accelerated charging of the battery is carried out by a big current, establish the battery in the container with water for an exception of its overheat.
