Water Miser Vent Caps
Since the "speed caps" on our US Batteries had begun to crack and fail, we decided to get new standard type vent caps. EV Team member, Matt, did a bit of research and ran across a company called Flow Systems. They offer a better vent cap that reduces watering, hydrogen venting, prolongs battery life and keeps valuable electrolyte in the cells by using a hydrophobic cindered disc to return all water and acid droplets back into the cells. We installed the caps today and are looking forward to the minimal maintenance to come.
