As you begin the daunting task of cleaning out your closets, drawers and cabinets, add one more item to the list. Clean your batteries.
Corrosion, dirt and moisture will build up on the terminals or contacts and drain power. This will reduce the efficiency of energy transfer and eventually cause the battery to die. To help you get started, we’ve created a “how-to” guide for some of the most commonly-used batteries.
Stop into your local Batteries Plus and our service professionals will not only help you clean your terminals, but will give you cost-effective, and easy-to-use products to keep your battery running at peak performance. We have cleaners, protectors, brushes, rings, terminal replacements and more.
Watch this video for step-by-step directions.
Clean your battery’s metal contacts every couple of months with a cloth moistened with rubbing alcohol. This keeps the transfer of power from your battery more efficient. Over time, contacts may accumulate dirt which reduce the efficiency of energy transfer. Make sure to clean the battery contacts on the battery and on the phone or laptop.
Keep battery contact surfaces and battery compartment contacts clean by rubbing them with a clean pencil eraser or a rough cloth each time you replace batteries. This practice can be used on cordless phone batteries, remote control batteries and more.
Every Batteries Plus Store is equipped with an on-site tech center powered by a battery professional capable of rebuilding, assembling and installing new batteries to replace worn out battery packs. Plus, our trained associates can help you find the right battery for any application. Visit our tech center page for more information.
