Several posts asked about replacing battery caps.
I did a Google Search and found interesting results!
Water Miser battery caps :
(a.) to keep battery tops dryer.
(b.) one inch tall, flip top like mini funnel,
(c.) Predicted life at three to five years.
(d.) Several dealers listed prices varied from $9 to $4.50 each.
Hydrocap do the same as Water Miser apparently PLUS :
(a.) They recombine the Hydrogen
with Oxygen and return H2O to the cell.
(b.) They are taller so low battery box tops may be a problem.
(c.) They get warm / hot during Equalizing (Sometimes melting!).
(d.) Predicted life at five years.
(e.) They felt top temperature as a measure of equalizing charge
(f.) They are available direct from "Hydrocap corp" in Miami,Fl,
call (305) 696-2504, Mr George Peroni. Price $5.50 delivered.
An article in Homepower Magazine reported saving 1.5 gallons of water,
because the solar array pack usually used that much every six months, reduced
usage to ZERO with the Hydrocap !
I'm sure some of our more experienced members have used these caps, perhaps
their experience can help guide us...
