A wet cell battery generates power from a pair of electrodes and a liquid electrolyte solution. Early wet batteries consisted of solution-filled glass jars and with electrodes dropped into each one. About the size of the average toaster, modern wet cells are used to start most cars and are comprised of lead plates in a solution of sulphuric acid. A sheet of insulation separates the anode (negative electrode) from the cathode (positive electrode). Wet cells can be either primary or secondary cells
- Avoid mixing batteries of different capacities, makes and ages.
- Connecting cables to the battery should be of appropriate quality and size.
- Keep connections tight and apply a thin layer of petroleum jelly.
- Top up periodically as required to the correct level (Use only Distilled Water)
- Excessive consumption of water is an indication of Overcharging.
- Keep battery Dry & Clean.
