  • Can you please send me MSDS for each of the batteries we buy from you?
    We have the same MSDS (Material Safety Data Sheet) covering our complete range of PS, PSH, PSG and PG series batteries, they are not model specific. We also have MSDS’s for our Powersport, NiCd and NiMH batteries The MSDS in PDF form can be downloaded from our website.

    Go to Literature and scroll down to Material Safety Data Sheets.
  • I have dropped one of your batteries and it has split open. What should I do about cleaning it up?
    Please refer to our Material Safety Data Sheet (MSDS) Sections 6, 7 and 8 for full information. Please follow these instructions and always ensure that you are wearing acid-resistant clothing, boots, gloves, and face shield. The MSDS in PDF form can be downloaded from this website. Go to Literature and scroll down to Material Safety Data Sheets.
  • Does overcharging damage batteries?
    As a result of too high a charge voltage excessive current will flow into the battery, after the battery has reached full charge. This will cause decomposition of the water in the electrolyte and premature aging. At high rates of overcharge a battery will progressively heat up. As it gets hotter it will accept more current, heating up even further. This is called thermal runaway and it can destroy a battery in as little as a few hours. For further information about charging please refer to our Technical Manual pages 12-19.
