Water Miser Benefits
- WATER MISER battery caps reduce electrolyte loss due to evaporation by up to 30%. Electrolyte vapors enter a condensation chamber where the liquid is trapped and then returned back into the battery cell. In addition, the vapors pass through a special hydrophobic cindered disk which further reduces moisture loss.
- Reduces battery maintenance time. Removing the vent caps from the battery is no longer necessary. Simply flip open the top to inspect the electrolyte level or to add water.
- Add water less often because of reduced electrolyte loss. This miserly cap quickly pays for itself by saving time and labor expense.
- The battery stays drier, reducing voltage loss due to electricity being conducted across a wet surface.
- Water Misers reduce fumes and airborne particles, creating a cleaner environment for everyone. Battery manufacturers use them in their charging areas to reduce fumes. Sulfuric acid fumes that are normally emitted from the battery are virtually eliminated.
- Water Miser battery caps include a spark arrestor that allows pressurized gases to escape but stops any sparks or flames from entering the battery cells.
- Reduces repetitive motion fatigue. During maintenance, the twisting motion that is required to remove the cap from the battery is eliminated. The flip-top cap also provides easy access.
- Less exposure to acidic fumes and sulfuric acid. No more handling of acid-soaked vent caps.
- The Water Misers’ flip-top cap can be rotated to any desired position, allowing it to function where space is limited due to battery cables, terminals, or terminal covers.
- The internal splash guard reduces splashing when filling the battery. As a result, this keeps the outside of the battery drier and the liquid in the cell where it belongs.
- Our model #2000 Water Miser battery cap fits all battery watering guns with a nozzle diameter of up to 3/4″ (#2000C & #2000CE up to 7/8″).
- The standard bayonet mount fits most forklift, golf cart, and floor scrubber batteries.
WATER MISER battery caps are available in two other styles that are listed below. Select either link for more information.
