How to Handle and Replace Your Battery

Handling and Checkup Before and After Opening

  • Check for cracks, damage, and leakage in the battery.
    When using defective products, it may damage the car’s electric circuit or cause a fire due to short-circuits.
  • Replace with a battery of the same capacity as the one already installed.
    When using a battery with a different capacity, the internal weld may cause an explosion.
  • Apply a battery that has the same polarity as the car.
    Otherwise, it may cause cable damage or fire.
  • When moving or handling a battery, wear rubber gloves.
    It may cause injury when dropped during handling or burn if the electrolyte comes into contact with skin.
  • When installing two batteries in a single car, use two products of the same capacity and manufacturing date.
    Damage may occur when using different batteries.
