The battery acid comes in a well built strong cardboard box first off. The box is well labeled and easy to read. Good safety warnings. Box was easy to open just be careful if you cut it but i opened it with my hands, no problem. Inside a nice thick plastic container with the acid inside. one side has a piece you cut off the tip off then place the provided hose section on it and it's really easy to fill the battery then and safe. You can then properly dispose of the box .

This was my first online purchase from Advance Auto Parts, and I must say it was very easy. Product was what it said, it was ready when I arrived to pick it up, and the people were pleasant. Most definitely will order online again.

  • Q:

    I have 2 batteries that I use for my trolling motor on my boat and they won't hold a charge any more. The cells are full and wondering if I put acid in them will that help them hold a charge or do I need to get new batteries?

      Lee, you need to desulfate the battery IF there are no leaks or empty
      cells.
      Take the battery and drop it from waist level onto a PILE OF SAND - for
      soft landing... this "thud" action will break up the buildup accumulated
      onto the plates - do the drop 2x.
      Empty out the acid into a PLASTIC container - such as a empty coffee
      can.
      Fill with water and shake and rinse out the contents - wear raggy
      clothes as the electrolytic acid will surely ruin anything you are
      wearing anyway.
      Boil distilled water and add (PURE epsom salts) not the scented type! -
      till the mixture becomes syrup like and no more salts can be absorbed.
      Add two teaspoons of this mixture to each cell of the battery.
      Take the old acid, spoon out the hard deposits, add a little fresh
      battery acid to it Stir the mix to ensure all the lead is suspended.
      Fill the remaining cells and close the battery. Be sure to get as much
      of the lead that came out of the battery back in it. (you will of course
      not be able to get all of it). Close it up and then rock the battery
      back and fourth a few times to swish the mix all together.
      Charge on trickle till charges and test - you got a 50/50 chance here of
      getting a good battery again and is worth the shot for a $1 worth of
      epsom salts. You can only do this once to a battery cell.

    • A:

      Lee,
      It depends on the condition of the charging plates in the batteries. Plus, you may have difficulty draining any existing acid out of the cells. Just adding a little acid to partially-filled cells probably isn’t going to correct your problem. You’d be better off to get new batteries.
      The reason I purchased acid from Advance Auto Parts was because batteries ordered over the Internet cannot be shipped full of acid. Therefore, I had to purchase the acid from a local store.

  • Q:

    will this help restore a weak battery ?
    Asked on 12/20/2013 by jesse from macon

    1 answer

    • CUSTOMER CARE

      A:

      Hi Jesse, great question! This battery acid could help restore a weak battery. Fill each cell of the battery to a level just covering the battery plates, and then go back and top off each cell equally. It is important to have the cells filled equally or the battery will not operate properly. The acid should reach a level about 3/16” below the cap ring. A newly filled battery will sometimes require additional acid after about 20 minutes. Re-examine the fill level and add additional acid if necessary.

  • Q:

    Autocraft Battery Acid 32FL OZ

    Part No. CYCLE ACID

    Can this be added pure strength into a new motorcycle battery? I mean it does not need to be diluted with distilled water when filling a brand new battery for the first time that is currently dry. Then of course I know the battery must then be charged according to the manufactures specification.

    So the question is; this fluid is ready and should be used full strength??

    Correct ??

    Thanks
