The sealed battery is already filled with electrolyte and has been sealed and fully charged at
the factory. Never pry the sealing strip off or add any other fluid to this battery.
Keep the battery terminals and connections free of corrosion. If cleaning is necessary,
remove the corrosion with a stiff wire brush. Wash with a solution of one tablespoon baking
soda and one cup water. Rinse well with tap water and dry off with clean shop towels. Coat
the terminals with dielectric grease or petroleum jelly.
Improperly connecting or disconnecting battery cables can result in an explosion and cause serious
injury or death. When removing the battery, always disconnect the negative (black) cable first. When
