Basic ingredients lawn mower battery
Electric lawn mowers Almost all lawn mowers are expected to use batteries. Here the battery can also be used for remote control of the lawn mower.
Lead-acid batteries are the basic battery of any device and this was the only battery available until the advent of nickel cadmium and nickel metal hydride batteries.
Lead acid batteries are used for many purposes all over the world, these batteries are inexpensive compared to Ni-cad or NiMH batteries, and they are still used for many purposes including starting the engine of a lawn mower. However, here we will discuss the battery of a cordless lawn mower.
Lead-acid battery for lawn mower
Lead-acid batteries are used in many cordless lawn mowers and can function effectively as maintenance-free Ni-cad batteries. Lead-acid batteries regularly require distilled water to add water to the battery, which is the only drawback of these batteries.
A well-maintained battery can give you long-term trouble-free maintenance, but people ignore proper working equipment until it fails. This is why even in the world lead-acid batteries are ignored by many people.
Nickel cadmium batteries
Ni-Cad is a maintenance-free battery, except that it is charged at an interval of 6 to 8 months and only recharged when the battery is turned off, it hardly needs any other attention.
The memory effect of nickel-cadmium batteries
The memory effect of a Ni-cad battery is the reason that the battery power is insufficient for optimal charging. This phenomenon is difficult to explain here, but it is sufficient to show that this phenomenon occurs when you start charging an incompletely discharged battery. Regardless of the battery condition, when you usually charge the battery every day, the memory effect can control and reduce the degree of full charge of the battery.
Nickel Cadmium batteries can only be charged after they have been fully discharged. If you suspect that the battery is not fully charged, fully discharge and fully charge the battery before using it.
In fact, a single battery of a battery pack needs to be discharged, but the battery is sealed, leaving ordinary people with no facilities to discharge a single battery.
That is why prevention is better than cure. Nickel Cadmium batteries must be used in accordance with the manufacturer’s recommendations, which means they must be fully discharged before charging. It must be followed strictly every time.
Precautions for batteries
Follow the precautions below to ensure that your battery is operating at full capacity:
- Do not charge until the battery is completely discharged
- Do not fully charge the battery with lead-acid batteries. Leave space for the generated hydrogen to escape
- Do not let the battery charge. Please charge as soon as possible
- Never add acid. Adding acid can overcharge the battery
- Do not disconnect the battery while the engine is running
