Posted November 9, 2017 by RakLab

The Raklab hope that with these proper guidelines in storing, handling and using of the batteries the public will be safe and secure.

October 31, 2017: The announcement made by Raklab Company in accordance with the proper handling of batteries was held recently to remind the public of the proper handling, storing and using of the batteries. The use of batteries in homes, hospitals and offices in almost every activity of humans life has brought many benefits but with this, the handling, storing and even proper using of the batteries are often overlooked, thus according to Raklab is highly hazardous for health and environment. With this, the Raklab testing department had made effort to line up some guidelines for the people.

Guidelines for Proper Handling, Using, and Storing Of Batteries:

1. Use the right size of the battery. The use of adequate batteries for the site and power supplies should be systematic and concise for fire prevention and protection for the power system and the battery powered device.

2. Always monitor the voltage of the battery. There is some system or tool that is out in the market which can help in checking the data log periodically of the battery. This is an efficient tool that can be used to monitor the voltage of the battery that would sometimes drop due to the temperature and might interrupt the operation of in plants, homes, and business. The monitoring of voltage is important to prevent damage and to extend the life of the battery.

3. Remember that alkaline batteries are non-rechargeable batteries and one should not try to do otherwise. If you need the backup supply of power you can use the rechargeable batteries instead. Take care not to leak the alkaline batteries too and keep it at -25 to +50 degree Celsius temperature and do not mix the new and used alkaline batteries.

4. Mind the connection system of the external batteries and remember that two batteries that are rechargeable must never be connected in parallel.

5. When using and handling of the VRLA also known as valve regulated lead acid batteries, one must not let it suffocate. The VRLA batteries need breathing space, should not be boxed because it emits hydrogen gas and hydrogen gas is combustible. Doing so will prevent the explosion of the batteries.

6. Never leave the lead-acid batteries unattended during the discharge process. Extended time on discharge will allow the growth of the sulfate crystal which can cause bad effect to the performance of the battery. The damaged accumulated in the extension time of discharge is irreversible.

7. Do not wear jewelry when handling batteries even if the battery just contains low voltage, it can still heat up conductors of energy such as metals in your jewelry and can burn the skin. In order to keep safe, remove it before you will plug or unplug the battery to the system.

8. The batteries can be affected with the extremity of the climate, therefore, it is recommended that one should store it in an insulated box. Solar panels must also be mounted to in a way that it will not let build up of snow that can impede the energy flow of the system.

The Raklab hope that with these proper guidelines in storing, handling and using of the batteries the public will be safe and secure. For more information about it or to see other services available in Raklab, you may visit their website at http://www.raklab.com
