The storage battery which was
first used for starting and light­
ing purposes in 1912 is an exceed­
ing important part o f the equip­
ment o f the modern automobile,
writes Vern Duus, batteryman
for the Cascade Garage.
Few people who have not made
a special study o f the mechanics
o f their car realize that it is the
heart o f the entire system, with­
out it there would be no electric
light and horn and the engine
would have to be cranked by
Many car owners are o f the
impression that a battery stores
up the electricity actually used
in charging it. This, however,
is an error, as the energy pro­
duced by the battery is created
by certain electro chemical act­
ion within the battery itself.
This electro chemical action
decomposes the water, which is
part o f the solution o f the bat­
tery in the form o f hydrogen and
oxygen gas. The other part o f
the solution being sulphuric acid,
is absorbed by the plates during
the chemical action which is pro­
duced by the discharge.
This water should be replaced
with pure distilled water at least
every two weeks and the battery
should be tested f o r specific
gravity and voltage at least once
every month. If one cell shows
a specific gravity decidedly lower
than that o f the other cells and
if the difference continues to in­
crease the cell with the lower
gravity h a s internal trouble
which probably consisted o f a
short circuit between the plates
caused by broken down insula­
If the entire battery shows a
gravity below 1.200 it it not re­
ceiving enough charge to replace
the energy used to crank the en­
gine and should be charged from
an outside source.
The Cascade Garage operates a
complete and up to date battery
service station and repair shop
and will give free battery inspec­
tion to'all owners o f electrically
equipped automobiles.
