FAQs : Livguard Automotive Battery

What are the main causes of battery failure?

Main causes of battery failure are :

  • High temperature
  • High vibration
  • Deep draining / failure to recharge after drops in voltage
  • A faulty alternator:

How should I store my batteries?

Fully charge the battery prior to storage and then disconnect it from the vehicle to prevent small electrical drains (such as in-car clocks, security systems and so on) from draining it. Check the battery voltage periodically and recharge it if it falls below 12.6 volts.

How long should ones car battery last?

The life of the battery depend upon many factors including:

  • The initial construction of the battery
  • The climate in which the vehicle is operated
  • Usage of Vehicle
  • Maintenance of Vehicle
  • Maintenance of Battery

What is a sealed battery?

This means the battery is sealed during manufacture and doesn’t have provision to add distilled water to the cells. Most Calcium Calcium batteries are sealed and are ‘maintenance free’ with minimal or reduced fluid loss due to gassing, the fluid level under normal conditions will last for the life cycle of the battery.

What is a calcium silver battery?

A calcium and silver component is added to both the positive and negative plates; this reduces water loss through gassing and allows the container to be sealed and maintenance free. More and more modern cars are using these types of batteries to combat higher power demands by the vehicle as they are less likely to be effected by extreme heat and higher charge rates.

What is Sulphation?

Sulphation is the chemical reaction between the sulphuric acid and the lead plates within a battery. When a battery discharges ‘sulphate’ crystals form on the plates, which reduces the capacity of a battery. This occurs as soon as a battery is discharged. Batteries kept in a poor state of charge will form ‘hard’ sulphation, which permanently damages a battery. To reduce sulphation it is important to recharge a battery and return it to a full state of charge as soon a possible.

What is an Amp Hour (Ah) rating?

An Amp Hour rating is a way of describing a battery’s capacity, commonly calculated at the 20 Ah rate. Essentially it is a measure of how long a battery will last (hours) for a given load (amps) before it is considered discharged. The Amp Hour calculation can vary between manufacturers and batteries.

What should one consider when buying a battery?

There are several key factors one should consider when buying a battery , they are :

  • Technology Type
  • Battery group size
  • Cold cranking amps (CCA)
  • Reserve capacity (RC)

What is the function of Magic eye in Livguard Automotive Battery?
