Battery terminal care


Recommended Posts

I have a tendency to over-tighten bolts and nuts:

When torquing-down the M8 bolts on 4 x Ritar 100AH VRLA batteries, I tried my best to take it easy, but noticed a small rotational-shift when tightening one of the terminal bolts.  Does this mean I may have damaged the seal?

How tight do you guys make your terminal bolts?  Does anyone apply grease to the terminals?

PS.  The spec. sheet has a figure of 10 n.m - but I don't have a torque wrench with that low a setting.
