how it works
The Charging Process
To fully charge any storage battery, a certain amount of overcharge is necessary. This overcharging equalizes the power in the cells of the battery. As each cell reaches 80% of capacity, it dissipates the surplus energy by boiling. This causes the water in the electrolyte to separate into hydrogen and oxygen gases. These gases escape from the battery and reduce the electrolyte level. If distilled water isn’t added to make up for that loss, the battery could be ruined.
So how do HYDROCAP VENTS help?
HYDROCAP VENTS catalytically recombine the hydrogen and oxygen gases into pure water and return it to the cell. This not only reduces watering and washes the electrolyte spray back into the battery, but also virtually eliminates the danger of hydrogen gas explosion and the corrosion of metal. In turn, this also extends the battery’s useful power and lengthens battery life.
