FAQs : Livguard Automotive Battery

Main causes of battery failure are:
  • High temperature
  • High vibration
  • Deep draining / failure to recharge after drops in voltage
  • A faulty alternator
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.
The life of the battery depends on many factors like:
  • The initial construction of the battery
  • The climate in which the vehicle is operated
  • Usage of Vehicle
  • Maintenance of Vehicle
  • Maintenance of Battery
This means the battery is sealed during manufacture and doesn’t have provision to add distilled water to the cells. Most 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.
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 as possible.
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.
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)
Monitoring battery health helps the customer to keep a track of replacement cycle of the battery.
In a rapid innovation era, Livguard has developed rugged batteries with advanced and sustainable technology. These ensure the same performance across extreme weather conditions and temperature unlike the conventional ones. The batteries are unique since they are completely sealed and require ‘zero maintenance’ and ‘no water top up’. The internal structure is designed using latest technology that provides more power and reserve capacity to the battery making it, reliable, consistent and environmentally friendly. To further strengthen the proposition, the product is supported by after sales team with a strong customer focus.
Livguard Batteries is the work of premium workmanship that ensures peak performance. A robust service policy & ‘ready to help’ customer care is a complete package for the peace of mind to the end user.
