^ Always provide for proper ventilation in the battery containment area
^ Keep metal tools and jewelry away from an exposed battery to avoid short circuiting the terminals.
^ Inspect for defective cables, loose connections, corroded cable connectors or battery terminals, cracked cases or covers, loose hold-down clamps and
