Check battery cells frequently during charging process. Set battery
charger controls for lower charging rate if electrolyte is seen flow-
ing from cells. Add distilled water as necessary to keep electrolyte
level even with ring at bottom of cell opening.
Periodically check specific gravity (page 5-144) during charging pro-
cess to determine level of charge. Battery is fully charged when spe-
cific gravity does not change over a two hour period at a low charging
rate. Specific gravity of a fully charged battery is approximately
Repeat steps (a) through (e) above to charge remaining battery, if ne-

Turn battery charger off and disconnect leads from battery. If 24 volt
charger was used, disconnect cable from slave receptacle and install
slave receptacle cover by turning clockwise.
Install cell caps on battery by turning clockwise.
