Is there an additive that can change the color of the
battery acid, so that it can be seen in the battery a
little easier? It would help me out quite alot when
checking the acid level. What would really be cool, is
if it would change color with regards to the specific
gravity of the acid. Any chemists out there?

You can make your own ph paper from beet juice.
It measures ph therefore a little in the battery acid might change color
according to the ph of the battery.

If you put it or any other ph coloring agent in a clear acrlyllic
battery case it might be a color changing battery.

You could contact the Exide Battery Company on how they color the battery
acid. We install a pack of Exide 12 volt 20 AH batteries for a emergency
lighting system, that was listed as a cadmium h2so4 electrolyte that was a
color purple.
