MF batteries are tightly sealed to prevent acid leakage.
However, tilting the battery to an angle of 45º or over may cause acid leakage through the vents on the sides. Therefore, store batteries in the upright position.Prevent placing any aqueous or solid (i.e. conductors) bodies on top of the battery.
It is extremely dangerous to use tools, such as hammers, on the battery terminals when connecting cables to the mounted battery.
Battery on Vehicle
When storing the vehicle for a long period of time, make sure to remove the memory fuse at the junction box to prevent natural discharging.
Also, charge the battery by running the engine within 1 month if the memory fuse hasn't been removed since the start of vehicle storage.
If the memory fuse has been removed, charge the battery by running the engine within 3 months from the start of vehicle storage.
