To maintain your car battery in optimal condition, it is necessary to ensure that the electrolyte level of the battery is kept at an appropriate level; i.e. between the MIN and HIGH level markings on the battery casing. In the case of ’maintenance-free’ batteries, regular checking and topping up of electrolyte is not necessary. Besides checking the electrolyte level, the battery also requires to be recharged on a regular basis. This is especially true if the car is minimally utilised, the battery does not get to be recharged through the car’s built-in charging system. Hence, an external source, such as a portable battery charger is required.
Besides the use of electrical power from batteries to start our car's engine, electricity is also required to power our mobile phones, laptops, etc. I believe many of us have been also caught in a situation where we need to utilize the mobile phone or laptop, but the battery ran flat. A frustrating situation, especially when you are outdoors, you cannot plug your equipment into any electrical power source to recharge it.
Charge with a regular battery charger. Downside of this is that often these aren’t automatic and do not turn themselves off when full charge is reached. If left unattended a battery can become ’boiled dry’ from overcharging. The battery becomes extremely dangerous due to highly explosive gasses produced from charging at a high rate and the casing becoming very warm introducing a fire risk.
This is particularly handy for those moments where you need to quick recharge your cellphone. Two types of this product we have in stock is the Mo-Go emergency mobile phone and the Movable Emergency Charger. The great thing about these kinds of chargers is that it only needs standard alkaline batteries to work and may be clipped away onto your key ring. Its really straightforward to use, all you need to do is plug the charger into your mobile phone and you may be able to make or receive phone calls!
Most cars, today, are equipped with automatic transmissions. This compounds the situation of a drained battery as compared to a car fitted with a manual transmission. In the case of the latter, it is still possible to ’push start’ the car with the assistance of your passengers or passing traffic, if any. In the case of the former, ’push starting’ the car is not possible. The only alternative is to obtain an external electrical power source.
