EXIDE ORBITAL BATTERY

Orbital Select Battery

Orbital Select Battery

Spiral Cell Technology

Spiral Cell Technology

The Orbital battery is Exides version of the Optima. Among the patent race in North America for the lead acid spiral cell wound technology was Optima, and Exide. Optima got the North American patent, while Exide gained their patent in Spain. There is not much difference between the two, expect that the Orbital tends to be cheaper to buy than the Optima. Exide offers 2 versions of the spiral cell wound technology. Black and Blue as they are referred to out in the market. The Black is a starting battery like the Red Top that Optima offers. The Blue Orbital is a deep cycle battery, and can be used for starting applications as well. The Blue Exide Orbital is like the Optima Yellow top, which is a dual purpose spiral cell technology battery. A big miss conception about these batteries is that people tend to think of them as gel batteries. The batteries are a conventional lead-acid battery that uses an AGL (lead paste absorbed into fiberglass matting) design that eliminates the problems of vibration and shock that would break down a ordinary lead acid battery. The tightly wound grids resist vibration which in turn stops plate shedding. This design is also very resistant to high temperatures and sub zero temperatures as well. The Orbital is also completely and permanently sealed. When the battery is in use, hydrogen and oxygen inside the battery are captured and reunited to form the water supply within the existing electrolyte. This technology does away with the need to ever add water to the battery. Another  nice feature of this battery is that it can be installed in any position sense it is completely and permanently sealed. The Optima and Orbital are also better for the environment because the batteries due not leak when they are cracked or punctured. There is no doubt that this technology is hands down better than a conventional lead acid battery. The battery life expectancy is close to 10 years on these batteries. The only issue people have with these batteries at this point in time is the price of them. You can expect to spend anywhere from 125 dollars to close to 200 dollars depending on where you purchase them.

OPTIMA BATTERY

Jan 29
2010

Optima Battery Line

Optima Battery Line

Everyone is familiar with or has at least heard of the Optima battery line. Referred to as the Red Top, Yellow Top, and Blue Top colors of batteries. The colors represent different types of Optima batteries, Red Top Optima being a starting battery. The Yellow Top Optima being a Dual Purpose battery, starting and Deep Cycle. The Blue Top Optima being a Heavy Duty Deep Cycle marine battery. The Optima battery is also well known for its ability to out perform all batteries in its category in cranking power. The Optima battery line is proven to be vibration and shock resistant, as well as leak free even after structural damage. Optima batteries are said to last 3 times longer than ordinary batteries with over 12,000 start cycles. The Optima battery is not impacted as much by cold temperatures as ordinary batteries due to their spiral technology design and composition of lead paste absorbed into fiberglass matting. The opposite is true as well, Optima batteries are more resistant to heat than ordinary batteries. The Optima battery is also resistant to corrosion. The numbers tell the story with the battery life of Optima batteries, ranging near 10 years. Considering other types of batteries, which have a average life of roughly 40 months. For people who keep there vehicles for 10 years or more, a optima battery is a must. Also if you are into professional audio equipment, a Optima is the only way to go. Sitting with the ignition in the accessory position, and listening to the radio for long periods of time, the optima battery will charge back up 75% faster than other auto batteries. That’s a sizable benefit when high drain professional audio systems are involved. The rock crawling crowd enjoy the benefits of the Optima battery. The Optima battery allows you to mount the battery sideways with no worries of leakage, making it easy to put the battery anywhere you want. The Optima battery has found the race tracks, because of its ability to be punctured and not leak acid. The Optima battery is truly superior over all others, and you should consider one during your next battery purchase.

WHAT IS A MARINE BATTERY OR DEEP CYCLE BATTERY?

Jan 28
2010
Deep Cycle Batteries

Deep Cycle Batteries

Deep Cycle Batteries

Deep Cycle Batteries

A deep cycle battery also referred to as a marine battery can be placed in a large amount of various applications, where long sustained power is required with the ability to discharge and recharge over and over again. Electric Wheelchairs, Floor Scrubbing machines,Trolling boats, Electric Fences, UPC Backup, Sump Pump backup, and Golf Carts are just to name a few. Because of the design of Deep Cycle batteries, they are able to be deeply discharged and then recharged again. A typical deep cycle battery has a cycle life of around of at least 200 charge, discharge cycles. A SLI (Starting, Lighting, Ignition) battery when put in applications requiring a deep cycle battery, don’t last long because they can only handle 10 or less of charge, discharge cycles. Ever notice how much heavier a deep cycle battery is over a car battery? Deep cycle batteries have much thicker plates inside of them which allows them to be cycled many times. Deep cycle batteries run in the neighborhood of 50 to 350 dollars depending on size for the application. The number one reason for premature failure of a deep cycle battery is electrolyte level. Electrolyte levels deplete with the constant charging and discharging cycles, due to heat and evaporation. This is why it is important to always check the electrolyte level, and top off with distilled water when needed.  The number two reason for short life is excessive discharging of the battery. Never let the battery die down till there is nothing left. We’ll use a example of running a trolling motor on a fishing boat. Don’t use the battery until the boat won’t move anymore. Once you notice a noticeable difference in performance charge the battery back up. Following these guide lines will extend your deep cycle battery life dramatically.

WHAT IS A 12 VOLT SLI CAR BATTERY?

Jan 25
2010

A battery is a device that stores power for a later use. The battery supplies power to a automobile to start and run electrical powered items. A automobile battery is referred to as a SLI battery, which stands for Starting, Lighting, and Ignition. A 12 Volt car battery is made up of 6 cells in a series. Each cell of a automobile battery provides 2.1 volts for a total of 12.6 volts at full charge. A 12 Volt Lead Acid battery has lead plates, and separate plates of lead dioxide which are in a electrolyte solution containing 35% sulfuric acid, and 65% water. This combination of items creates a chemical reaction that releases electrons, making them flow through conductors to produce power. As the battery discharges, the acid of the electrolyte reacts with the materials of the plates, changing their surface to lead sulfate. Once the battery is recharged again, the chemical reaction is reversed: the lead sulfate reforms into lead oxide and lead. When the plates are restored to their original condition, the process may now be started all over again. A SLI 12 volt battery is capable of producing a large amount of power for a short time, where as a marine deep cycle is capable of producing a smaller amount of power for a longer period of time.

NIMH VS NICAD (Nickel Metal Hydride VS NICKEL CADMIUM)

Jan 23
2010
NICAD AA Rechargeable

NICAD AA Rechargeable

NICAD(Nickel Cadmium) batteries were very popular in their day, but now are obsolete because of NIMH(Nickel Metal Hydride) batteries. NICAD batteries suffered in available capacity,they were susceptible to memory effect, and not to mention they are not environmentally friendly. Nicad batteries contain toxic cadmium.  Nicad batteries needed to be fully discharged before charging again to 100%. On a cordless drill for example, if you used half the battery working on a project and then charged it back up again for the next day the NICAD batteries would start using only 50% of their capacity thinking it was 100% charged. NICAD batteries however were hard workers if you drained them all the way down and took them back up again to 100%. They would take a lot of abuse of heavy cycles, time after time but lacked high capacity. Nicad batteries had around 750 charge cycles in them.

NIMH AA Rechargeable

NIMH AA Rechargeable

Nickel Metal Hydride is an excellent replacement to Nicad. Nickel Metal Hydride has no memory effect, so they came be charged back up at any time with no worries. NIMH also contains no toxic cadmium, and are environmentally friendly. NIMH offers 2 to 3 times the available capacity over Nicad batteries. NIMH are a excellent choice for high drain electronic devices like digital cameras. NIMH batteries have 1000 plus recharge cycles in them, making them a power house in the rechargeable sector. One of the draw backs to NIMH batteries however is their discharge rate when not in use. NIMH have a high discharge rate, and for that reason are a bad choice for emergency applications like backup flashlight batteries in cellars. NIMH batteries are a great improvement over Nicad batteries, and are a excellent choice for your next battery purchase.

WHO MAKES JOHN DEERE BATTERIES? | MAILBAG MONDAYS Q&A

Jan 22
2010

Ted from Illinois

I’m a corn and soybean farmer in Illinois, and have been a die hard green man for many years. I’ve always bought John Deere Strong box batteries. I’m not crazy about the price of them, but I seem to have pretty good luck with Strong Box batteries. My question is, who manufactures John Deere Batteries?

BestBatteryTips.com

Ted, thanks for writing in with your question. You are officially are first farmer to submit a question in our Mailbag Mondays Q&A. We don’t have a prize for you, just wanted to let you know your our number one farmer! John Deere has several different battery brands. They offer the John Deere Hibernator, John Deere Strong Box ST, John Deere Strong Box, John Deere Road Gard, John Deere Spiral Energy (Gel), John Deere Performance, and John Deere MowPro. Exide Technologies is the manufacturer of John Deere batteries. Exide is one of the largest battery manufactures in the world, and have been making John Deere batteries for many years. Exide and John Deere have designed a excellent product line that many farmers are proud to use. As you know, farming is a somewhat seasonal occupation when some equipment is used versus others. The John Deere Hibernator battery was designed to discharge in the non peak times with the ability to recharge the battery and begin use again during peak times of farming. A example of an application for the John Deere Hibernator would be a sprayer, which is only used one time a year. You are able to get the sprayer out of storage in the early summer and charge the John Deere Hibernator back up and go about your business. When done spraying for the year, put the sprayer back in storage till next year and the process starts all over again. We don’t have any data on how well the Hibernator works in these conditions at this time.  Exide has been making batteries for decades, and is a proven leader in the battery manufacturing world. John Deere selected the right manufacturer for the job.

Jumper Cables

Jumper Cables

Jill from Kansas

Hello, Could you explain to me how to jump start a car?

BestBatteryTips.com

Referred to as Jump Start, Jump starting, or jumping is a procedure used to start a vehicle that will not start due to a discharged battery. Some reasons for needing a jump start are leaving the headlamps on, leaving the interior lights on, leaving the car ignition in the ON position, a weak battery, and or a defective alternator.  Jump starting is an effective way to start a vehicle that will not start on its own power. Both vehicles must be the same voltage and both must be negatively grounded. Always be careful when jump starting another vehicle, battery explosions are very common while jump starting vehicles. Corrosion on one or both vehicles, loose battery connections, a battery with a bad or weak cell, and arching of battery jumper cables can cause a explosion. Always be sure to wear eye protection for this reason when jump starting another battery. Below is an explanation of jump starting another vehicle.

Battery Jump Start Diagram

Battery Jump Start Diagram (Source BCI)

Make sure all battery cable connections are tight, and no signs of battery corrosion.

Make sure both ignitions are turned off and all accessories inside are off. (Heater fan) (lights) (radio) (wipers) (etc.)

(1) Connect the RED positive to the positive post of the car with the dead battery.

(2) On the other end of the jumper cables, connect the RED positive to the positive red post on the battery in the car with the good battery.

(3) Connect the BLACK negative cable to the negative post on the good battery. (Car giving the jump start)

(4) On the other end of the jumper cables, connect the BLACK negative to the block or frame of the car receiving the jump start. The block or car frame is used to complete the circuit and keep any sparks away that might occur during making the circuit complete.

(5) Start the car giving the jump start first.

(6) Then rev the engine to 2000 r.p.m.. (wait 10 minutes before attempting to start the other car)

(7) Start the car with the dead battery. (failure to start, wait 3-5 minutes before attempting another start)

(8) Once car is started, disconnect jumper cables in the reverse order. Be sure to start with the Black negative on the engine block or frame first.

BATTERY CORROSION

Jan 20
2010
Battery Corrosion
Battery Corrosion

Battery Corrosion can be found 75% of the time under the hood of automobiles, in boats, and golf carts. Battery corrosion can be a real burden to get rid of once it starts if not addressed quickly. Doing nothing about a corrosion problem will lead to other problems down the road. The corrosion eventually interferes with the connection between the battery and cables attached to the battery. Common problems due to corrosion are automobile starter dragging, charging problems related to your battery, and no starting ability. In golf carts, not being able to charge all batteries evenly, cables becoming hot and melting during charging, and of course short run times due to state of charge of the batteries. Boat batteries attract corrosion, because of the high humidity and sometime salts that are present in their environments. You may pose the question, what is corrosion? A battery has sulfuric acid inside and produces hydrogen gas, which is the main factor behind the corrosion which naturally occurs on your battery cables. This is because when your automobile and battery are running, small amounts of gas are released through the batteries vent cap or caps.The gas naturally combine with the heat, grime and humidity in the air, and some other things like grease, oil and coolant, to form corrosion on your battery cables and terminals. Once corrosion makes a home on your battery and connections things will only get worse over time.

Preventing corrosion is simple and easy to do. You can purchase battery terminal spray at your local Auto Parts store that will prevent corrosion from forming. Just spray your battery posts and terminal connections thoroughly. You can also use white lithium wheel bearing grease, and apply thoroughly to the battery posts and terminal connections. DO NOT USE jelly or Vaseline, due to their melting point. When battery corrosion is already present, it must be completely removed before applying any corrosion inhibitor. The first thing you will want to do is remove the black and red battery connections in that order. Be careful not to allow the cables to touch any other part of the automobile, especially if their is two batteries installed, the red positive will still be hot from the other battery. Once you have your connections free, you are now ready to begin cleaning the corrosion away. A wire brush works best for scrubbing away battery corrosion. Mixing one cup of water to two tablespoons of baking soda is a excellent cleaning agent. Once you have all of the corrosion gone, and the battery and connectors are dry. You then must coat the battery posts with the terminal spray or lithium grease. Put your terminals back on red positive first, then black negative. Tighten your cable connections, and the job is complete. Always remember to wear safety goggles and rubber gloves when working with batteries.
