Textbook Problem

Which of the following statements about battery types is not true?

  1. Deep cycle batteries are designed to go through many charge and discharge cycles.

  • A low-maintenance battery is a heavy-duty version of a normal lead-acid battery.
  • Maintenance-free batteries require external holes or vent caps.
  • In a gel cell battery, gassing is minimized and vents are not needed.
  • Expert Solution
    To determine

    The incorrect statement about the batteries.

    Explanation of Solution

    There are many different types of batteries used in today’s vehicle. By using different designs and types we can enhance the performance of a battery.

    Deep cycle batteries: They are the batteries having many charged and discharged cycles to go through in the battery. They have thicker and fewer plates than starting batteries.

    Low-maintenance battery:

    As they have low or no maintenance they are the most commonly used batteries in today’s vehicles. It is basically a heavy duty version of a normal lead-acid battery having parts made thicker and more durable than a normal battery...
