Home alarm systems are designed to provide security and peace of mind for homeowners. These systems rely on batteries to function properly, as they act as a backup power source in case of a power outage. However, it is not uncommon for home alarm batteries to fail, leaving homeowners vulnerable to potential security breaches. In this blog post, we will discuss some of the common causes of home alarm battery failure and how to prevent such failures. 1. Age of the Battery: One of the primary causes of home alarm battery failure is the age of the battery itself. Like... View Article

How Do High Temperatures Affect Batteries?

October 27, 2023 10:42 pm Published by Leave your thoughts

Have you ever wondered why your battery died during the scorching heat of summer? It’s a frustrating experience that many of us have faced, and understanding the science behind it can help you avoid such situations in the future. The building block of a battery is the plate inside, and whether it’s a negative or positive one, these plates are coated with active material and then processed through a cooking and drying procedure. When temperatures soar, especially in the engine compartment, the battery faces a barrage of challenges, including intense heat, vibration, and loss of active material. In this blog... View Article

Does Motor Oil Wear Out?

October 13, 2023 10:42 pm Published by Leave your thoughts

Motor oil is an essential component in the smooth operation of our vehicles and machinery. It plays a crucial role in lubricating engine parts, reducing friction, and dissipating heat, ensuring that your engine runs efficiently. But does motor oil wear out over time? In a word, no. Motor oil doesn’t wear out; instead, it becomes contaminated. This contamination can have a detrimental impact on the longevity and performance of various internal components. In this blog post, we’ll explore why motor oil doesn’t wear out but gets contaminated, how contaminants affect your engine, and the role of oil filtration systems in... View Article

What Are Radial Grid Plates?

So, what is a radial grid plate in a battery and how does it improve performance? A conventional battery plate is rectangular. The lug at the top is to the edge and the cross lines are rectangular. Not very efficient in current flow as we know electricity looks for the shortest path. The early design could be durable which in itself was important since a pasted plate that is durable would more likely hold pasted material longer since vibration loosens the pasted material and as a result can loose capacity. A radial grid has a lug at the top more... View Article

Dual-Purpose Batteries Versus Deep Cycle Batteries in Boats

September 8, 2023 4:34 pm Published by Leave your thoughts

When it comes to powering your boat, having a reliable battery is crucial. However, with so many options available, it can be challenging to determine which type of battery is best suited for your specific needs. Two commonly used battery types in boats are dual-purpose batteries and deep cycle batteries. Boat batteries by design have a slightly less Cold Cranking Amperage (CCA) because the battery may not be used for a period of time and more likely to loose some charge during periods of inactivity. The slightly less CCA allows the battery to have a slightly greater Reserve Rating (RES)... View Article
