Battery Safety

We can fine-tune your car

Take care when handling batteries, as incorrect handling can cause serious injuries. Batteries contain sulphuric acid and give off explosive hydrogen gases, so they should always be kept away from naked flames. They should also be kept away from children.

Small engines typically use lead-acid batteries, which store electrical energy using lead plates and sulfuric acid. The electrolyte fluid in the battery loses its sulfuric acid and gains water as the battery is discharged.

Battery electrolyte is extremely corrosive and can cause severe burns to eyes and skin. Batteries produce hydrogen gas that can cause an explosion if ignited by a spark or open flame.

Minimize safety hazards by observing these precautions:

  • Follow the manufacturer’s recommended procedure for charging, removal and disposal.
  • ALWAYS hold a battery upright to avoid spilling electrolyte.
  • Wear protective eyewear and clothing when handling batteries.
  • If electrolyte spills on skin or splashes in an eye, flush immediately with lots of cold water and contact a physician immediately.

Service batteries in a well-ventilated area, away from sources of sparks or flames.
