Battery Safety Tips - Battery Tutorial

We must think safety when we are working around and with batteries. Remove all jewellery. After all you don't want to melt your watchband while you are wearing the watch. The hydrogen gas that batteries make when charging is very explosive. I have had 2 batteries blow up and drench me in sulphuric acid. That is no fun. This is a good time to use those safety goggles that are hanging on the wall. Sulphuric Acid eats up clothing and you may want to select Polyester clothing to wear, as it is naturally acid resistant. I just wear junk clothes, after all Polyester is so out of style. When doing electrical work on vehicles it is best to disconnect the ground cable. Just remember you are messing with corrosive acid, explosive gases and 100's amps of electrical current.
