Accu (accumulator) or battery important function for motor vehicles. In the past, this technology is also used for other electronics, such as television and radio. Serves as a storage battery electric power that can be used for various purposes systemic engine, such as turning on (starter). On motor vehicles, Accu serves as a supplier of electric power only.
Accu generally can survive within a period of 3-5 years depending on use and maintenance. Treatment can extend the life of the battery so that the user avoid the vehicle from a standstill due to lack of electricity supply in the vehicle. The following are important tips for vehicle owners to take care of the battery.
1. Avoid corrosion on the device
The nature of the acid in liquid Aki clearly accelerate the process of corrosion or rusting on metal-metal. Rust can shorten the life of the battery. Therefore, vehicle owners need occasional cleaning of the battery fluid spilled around metals such devices. Cleanup aims to prevent the battery from corrosion due to exposure to acidic fluids.
