With the cold waves this winter, the staff at MacBatec would like to remind our customers and friends that the lead-acid batteries are designed to start working at a temperature of 25*C. The batteries that are below this temerature tend to have problems starting and reduce their nominal power to a large extent , decreasing upto 40% of their potential when the temperature is below -15*C

Our recommendation is to store the batteries inside a warehouse or covered and, if at all possible, dont leave them resting for more than 12 hours in a row. The batteries get cold and could become damaged.

A good way to battle against the cold inside the batteries is to ensure they are correctly filled with water, properly maintained, and properly used. Moving them a little, although they aren’t being used to work, can raise the temperature and keep them from becoming damaged.
