Because batteries directly affect system performance, it is important to make sure they are functioning at optimal capacity.
We recommend you check the batteries in your solar electric system once a year. This checkup should begin with a visiual inspection to look for corroded terminals, excessive bulging and cracked cases. Make sure the connections are tight and measure the voltage of each battery with a multimeter.
Remember to check the age of your batteries. Batteries designed for small solar systems last between 4 to 7 years depending on system design and the average temperature to which batteries are exposed.
Larger systems using 2-volt batteries can last as long as 7 to 10 years because the batteries are designed for longer cyclical life.
