Battery Maintenance

Battery maintenance includes a full system inspection report with comments and actions required to ensure battery autonomy for every battery attended.

In addition to inspection and reporting other tasks and services we provide include:

  • Removal of corrosive deposits
  • Greasing of terminals as required
  • Topping up of electrolyte levels where necessary

Pre-Delivery Discharge Testing

Pre-delivery discharge testing comprises of having a complete batch of new cells commission charged as one complete battery, then discharged as per your requirements and recharged before the battery is delivered and installed.

Pre-delivery discharge testing enables us to provide end users with the confidence they are gaining a reliable and correctly manufactured product designed to suit their particular needs. This all helps to alleviate problems and reduce difficulties at the time of installation.
