Too Hot To Handle – The Dangers of an Overheated Battery

Heat is never a good sign when you are dealing with batteries. Without proper maintenance and the correct setup, you can end up experiencing thermal runaway.

What is THERMAL RUNAWAY?

Thermal runaway is a situation where an increase in temperature changes the conditions in a way that causes a further increase in temperature. It is a feedback loop that can easily cause malfunctions.

 

To help protect yourself from experiencing thermal runaway, try to avoid these common causes:

-Excessive room temperature.

-Incorrectly set voltage levels on the charger.

-Shortened cells due to manufacturer’s defects.

-Shortened cells cud to aging, excessive load cycling, lack of maintenance, etc.

-Lack of consistency in the relative condition or age of the jars.

 

Don’t let thermal runaway end up costing you in the end.
