    Hi guys

    My motolite solar master lead acid battery exploded! grrr
    I was doing some mods on my bike and using grinding (angle grinder) near the battery and KABOOM!!!
    battery exploded beside me!!!! :censored:

    Good thing im wearing helmet, it protect my eyes from acid.
    Beware guys, its not wise to use grinder near battery
    as sparks from the grinder will cause explosion from battery fumes!

    be careful when doing some works near battery.
    the tiny sparks from grinder, welding, electric sparks will ignite
    the air fumes/mists coming from the battery. :D

    the only difference with regular lead acid battery and solarmaster is:
    solar master is designed for multiple fully discharged
    while regular acid battery is not, if its fully discharged, its considered dead and will not fully charge anymore.

    both batteries will last depending on their capacity.
    mine is 100AH capacity, it lasts 5hours for 32" led tv, 1 electric fan, 2 florescent lights

    you can use ups for computers but it will take days to fully charge the battery.
    i use heavy duty inverter from cdrking.

    PWI-005(1000VA)-AL(H-1000)
    INVERTER 1000VA (CONVERT DC TO AC POWER)
