Batteries for Every Motorcyle in San Diego
Motorcycle batteries deliver a burst of power to a motorbike at startup. At Battery World of San Diego, we stock 12v and 6v units for every type of two-wheeler and accessory. The two general types of bike cells are conventional (wet) and dry AGM (absorbed glass mat). Some makes, such as BMW, use a Gel battery. Conventional batteries require the periodic addition of water, while sealed cells are virtually maintenance-free. All types benefit from regular use and can last up to 3 to 5 years with a bit of regular attention.
Keeping Scooters Powered up in the Escondido and Carlsbad Areas
Whichever the model, cycle cells are smaller than automotive varieties, and lose power much more quickly when not in use. In fact, a bike cell can lose up to 1% of its power for every day it stays dormant. At that rate, it is entirely possible to find your bike unstartable after a couple of months in storage. Here are a few tips for how to keep the power flowing:
- Use a 1-2 amp automatic maintainer to keep plates clean and cells fully charged.
- With Gel cells, use a charger specific to Gel products.
- Keep connectors clean.
- Remove cables from unit when not in use for an extended time.
- Top up fluid in conventional cells to compensate for evaporation.
