GS Yuasa, the world’s leading battery manufacturer, is highlighting the importance of regular battery checks, no matter the season. Given the increased spike in failures typically seen over the colder months, most assume it’s cold weather that kills batteries. However, the Japanese battery manufacturer is encouraging users to consider the impact of the typically warmer summer months.

Understanding and managing the effects of high temperatures on batteries  is crucial for maintaining their performance and longevity, and ultimately providing enhanced customer service.

It might seem counterintuitive to some, but checking a battery is important at all times of year, not just winter. High temperatures accelerate battery degradation, affecting its capacity and lifespan. In fact, a 10°C rise in battery temperature doubles the self-discharge rate.

UPS Battery Shop offer a range of battery, rack and room temperature monitoring devices to help you keep a close eye on the operating conditions of your UPS and to help identify any areas where better ventilation or cooling may be required.
