How to store and check batteries

We have collected our know-hows for optimal DN Automotive battery maintenance.

How to Store Your Battery
  • Before storage, check according to product instructions. If needed, charge, then store.

  • Avoid flammable areas.

  • Ensure the (+) terminal and (-) terminal do not causeshort-circuits.

  • Store in a cool, dry place away from sunlight. Recommended storage temperature is 10 ~ 25 ° C.

  • The battery will slowly deplete even during storage. To recover the lost capacity by self-discharge, check once every three months according to charging directions, and charge if needed.

  • Unless stored in a box, do not keep batteries standing on top of one another.

  • To prevent dropping or leakage, keep the batteries upright.

  • Keep batteries on a rack or pallet rather than the floor. Small pebbles or points on concrete floors may cause damage to the batteries and cause leakage.

Tips for Transporting Your Batteries
  • 01
    Do not tilt or overturn the battery when transporting. The electrolyte may leak and cause damage to clothing or cause burns.
  • 02
    Batteries are heavy. Do not transport with a heavy load. It may cause injuries due to falling or damaging during transportation.
Checking Battery Status

Check the product status indicator frequently. Proceed with appropriate maintenance accordingly.

* If your car does not start despite the product status lighting green (normal), consult a store or help center for a checkup
  • Normal

    The product is in a normal state. You may continue with the use.

  • Need Charging

    If the product still does not indicate “normal” after shaking, the battery requires charging.

  • Need Replacement

    This is when the battery lifespan is over or when when the electrolyte (sulfuric acid) is evaporated due to overcharging. Change your battery after checking your car.

  • Check for rust

    Check whether there is corrosion (rust) on the terminals. If there is any corrosion, remove the rust with a steel brush or other such tool, and apply an anticorrosive coat.

  • Check for dust and foreign substances

    Check whether there is excessive dust, impurities, or leakage on top of the battery cover. When removing, make sure to use a damp cloth.

  • Check for corrosion

    Check for corrosion on the battery board. If there is any corrosion, remove the battery according to “How to replace your battery”. Remove the corrosion on the board and install the battery.

* If the corrosion on the battery board is severe, there is a possibility of battery damage or electrolyte (sulfuric acid) leakage due to electrical system abnormality. Check for issues in the battery and the car’s electrical system.
