Battery Basics: A Layman's Guide to Batteries

If you’ve done any research on how batteries work or what you should look for when selecting a battery, you’re probably buried in information, some of which is conflicting. At BatteryStuff, we aim to clear that up a bit. You’ve most likely heard the term KISS (Keep It Simple, Stupid). I’m going to attempt to explain how lead acid batteries work and what they need, without burying you with a bunch of needless technical data. I have found that battery data will vary somewhat from manufacturer to manufacturer, so I will do my best to boil that data down. This means I may generalize a bit, while staying true to purpose. more...

How to Pick the Right Battery Charger

There are certainly other factors in selecting a battery charger, and it would be difficult to cover them all, but here a few. Input voltage, generally for use in foreign countries. Exposure to elements, i.e. would you benefit from a waterproof charger? Perhaps you will need a charger that doubles as a power supply for an RV or some other application. Often people will need to charge multiple batteries simultaneously, so multiple bank chargers may be needed. more...

Why is My 12 Volt Battery Reading as 13 Volts?

All Lead acid batteries are made up of a series of 2.2-volt cells that are bridged together in series to reach their final desired voltage. The actual resting voltage, or the voltage a battery will settle at 12-24 hours after being removed from the charger, is closer to 2.1 volts per cell. more...

When Should I Add Extra Sulfuric Acid to my Battery?

Unless a battery was tipped over and all the acid spilled out, we recommend that you add only distilled water. All the chemical needed to make sulfuric acid is still in the battery; the water that is just gone. If you add more acid, you will be changing the chemical makeup of the battery which can lead to incorrect sulfuric content. more...
