All products carry a minimum of 1 year’s warranty against faults and defects which present themselves under reasonable operating condtions. Provided the right battery is used in the right application, the chances of a problem occurring will be minimal. All batteries have a finite lifespan which is governed by the conditions under which the battery operates. Problems caused by sulphation, wear and tear, over charging and deep cycling are not manufacturing faults and are not covered by Supac Ltd’s guarantee.
In the event that the buyer has fully charged the battery and believes that it is faulty, the battery must be returned to Supac for testing in the following way: -
Package the battery securely and send it back to us with the original invoice. We recommend that you use a recorded delivery service. Once received, we will carry out tests upon the battery. If the battery is found to be faulty we will reimburse you the cost of carriage upon receipt of the courier’s invoice addressed to you. We will then arrange for a replacement battery to be sent to you. Where the battery is not found to be faulty, we will charge you with the cost of carriage back to you.
Please note that for claims made under warranty, no refunds will be issued, and no warranties will be processed without the relevant paperwork.
Removing Batteries and Installing Batteries on Vehicles
When removing a battery from a vehicle in order to install a new one, first switch off all electrical loads and remove the ignition key. Disconnect the earth-connector (this is normally the negative on modern vehicles). This may result in the loss of memory settings; please refer to the vehicle handbook. Following this, disconnect the live-connector and then remove the hold-down clamps.
When preparing the new battery for fitting, check that the battery has the correct polarity for the vehicle. Then check that the battery has the correct height for the vehicle. If a battery is too tall, it can short-out on the bonnet or the bottom of a seat; it may even damage the bonnet.
It is good practice to place the old and new battery side by side to compare polarities, hold-downs and performance levels. Some batteries have hold-downs at both the sides and ends. Only the ones used for securing the battery on the vehicle need to be checked.
Check that the battery is clean and dry and that the vent plugs or manifolds are firmly in position. The voltage must be above 12.50V. If not, charge the battery or use another that has a voltage above 12.50V. Ensure the two terminal caps are still fitted at this stage.
When preparing the vehicle for fitting clear away any items on the battery tray which might damage the battery (placing a heavy battery on a piece of sharp grit can puncture the bottom of the battery). Check that the connectors, the hold-down clamps and the tray are clean and corrosion-free (if there is any corrosion, hot water will instantly remove this). If there is severe corrosion which might affect the stability of the battery or has affected other parts of the engine compartment, have the vehicle checked by an authorised distributor. The alternator drive belt must also be inspected to ensure the tension is correct (refer to the vehicle handbook or service manual). It is also recommended that the electrical system and particularly the charging system of the vehicle be checked to make sure it is operating correctly. Again, reference should be made to the handbook or service manual.
When installing the battery, fit and tighten the hold-down clamps. These should be tight enough to secure the battery and not allow it to move. Be careful not to over tighten. Connect the live-connector first to the correct battery terminal (normally the positive) after removing the terminal cap. Again, be careful not to over-tighten. Then, connect the earth-connector to the other terminal after removing the terminal cap. Do not over-tighten. Place the 2 terminal caps on the old battery that has been removed from the vehicle to avoid the possibility of short circuits. Replace on the new battery any components that have been taken from the old battery such as exhaust tubes, vent elbows, terminal covers, removable hold-down strips etc. The use of petroleum jelly is not necessary on modern polypropylene batteries, but there is no disadvantage in using it. Smear lightly on the terminals. It is still recommended for hard rubber batteries.
For non-automotive applications, install the battery in line with the equipment suppliers recommendation.
