Barton Comments on
Service of Batteries
"There has been so much said
about new Insulation and dry stor
age batteries that the public is con
fused", says Mr. Barton of the Auto
Electric Service Company, on South
Commercial street. The truth of
the matter Is that several storage
battery companies. Including the
Electric Storage Battery Company,
who make the famous Exlde Storage
batteries, have been sending oat
batteries In a dry condition for sev
eral years. The. reason for this Is
to Insure a fresh battery for the cus
tomer. This Is no new thing but a
matter of better business methods
adopted by the best storage battery
companies some time ago.
It might be well to add here that
the makers of the exlde battery own
the patent on the wood separator
and all other companies must pay
a royalty on any wood separators
which they use. Naturally Ihey
seek a substitute but so far nothing
has been found that equals the first
class specially treated hard wood
separator which Is used in tlfe "El
ide Storage battery. Such baiterles
give many years of excellent service,
but of course carp must b taken to
keep any battery in a normal con
dition. In order to maintain this
condition the starting system of a
car must be adjusted so that the bat
tery will be charged at the correct
rate. If this condition does not ex
ist, the battery will run down and
must be charged again and again.
To help the motorist out of this
difficulty. Mr. Barton has Installed
a complete testing outfit with which
he can quickly determine the con
dition or the self starting system cf
any car. This service Is free to a2
and will prove a great saving to any.
