Plan for Winter Storms with a Lead Acid Battery Charger

January 29, 2013

Written by: Randy Walker

Winter storms are a very challenging form of emergency as they may include blizzards, high winds, or hails that can cause power outages. Sometimes power can be knocked out for hours, while in other cases power outages may last for several days. In the United States, winter storms happen annually. When the lights go out during an emergency situation, like winter storms, it is important to have equipment on hand, such as a Lead Acid Battery Charger from BatteryPlex, to ensure your emergency lights are fully functional.

There are numerous benefits of charging your emergency light batteries with a BatteryPlex Lead Acid Battery Charger. Keeping your emergency lights charged ensures that they are either activated during a power outage, and are an important feature in a residential or commercial building as they help in minimizing injuries and damages during power black outs. Emergency lights that are powered by a Lead Acid Battery Charger can alleviate confusion and panic that usually accompanies winter storms. Preparing for a proper lighting back-up plan is an essential task that needs to be carried out before an emergency arises.

When storing emergency lights, make sure that they are stored without the emergency light batteries installed in them. Generally, batteries can leak and rust over time and may completely damage the light source. This is why it is important to use a Lead Acid Battery Charger, while also making sure to keep fresh sets of emergency light batteries with the lights at all times. They should be stored conveniently close to each other, either the batteries are taped around the light or kept inside the same emergency kit, so there is no need to look for them while under duress. Check all your batteries and Lead Acid Battery Charger once a month or two to see if they are charged or working. If they are no longer working, charge them up or replace them immediately with a new set. Have a calendar marked at regular intervals when checking the emergency light batteries.

Make sure that during an emergency situation, things like emergency lights, which are needed the most, are easy to find. Store them somewhere that is conveniently easy to get a hold of, even if the area is dark. To prevent compounding the problem with an injury, avoid placing the emergency lights in a junk drawer with sharp or dangerous items. It is always best to keep them in a safe and convenient place that is easy to find and easy to reach. It is also a good idea to store them in various areas of the house or building.

Consider keeping a primary emergency light on the main floor of the house. Also, include flashlights in smaller kits that are stored in other levels of the house for an easy access. Some of the best areas to keep the emergency lights include inside the bedroom close to the bed, in the garage’s emergency kit, in the first aid kit, near the front and back doors, and hanging them on a peg near a window or a door entrance. 

Overall, getting caught without lights or power is something that is to be expected with any winter storm, so familiar should always be prepared with emergency lights and emergency light batteries. Taking the steps and time needed to prepare for an emergency can greatly help in keeping one’s self and family safe and calm during a difficult situation.
