If for any reason the batteries are not in use, keep them fully charged and test their gravity
and add water once a month.
Connections must be tight at all times. Occasionally check both the outside connections and the
cross straps between cells, to ensure that they are tight and good connection is being made.
Never bring open lights or flames of any kind into the battery room.
Keep the battery room ventilated at all times.
Do not use the batteries right after charging, but allow about half an hour to elapse;
otherwise the batteries will still be gassing and this will cause noises to be heard in the
Responsibility for Batteries
To ensure proper care of the storage batteries, one person should be given full responsibility
for them, and should fill out the Battery Log Sheet we supply; no one else should touch them.
If the projectionists work in two shifts, one man on each shift should be given responsibility
for the batteries.
