Abstract:

Service tests were made to determine the extent the improved battery filler caps corrected the battery heating system deficiency. The Improved Battery Filler Cap is a battery cell cover that provides an acid tight seal of the cell opening. It contains two vent openings that baffle the gases and prevents loss of electrolyte when splashed against the underside of the cap. The cap is threaded and contains a rubber gasket that seals between the top of the cell opening and the cap when the cap is screwed into the opening. It is fabricated from a hard rubber material capable of withstanding more heat than the standard cap. Author
