FIGURE 17. CROSS- SECTION OF A TYPICAL STORAGE BATTERY.
The top of each cell is fitted with a cell cover made from a material, such as hard rubber like the
container. Some cell covers are made so the straps connecting the cell terminals are exposed. On
others, the connecting straps are covered and only two terminal posts are exposed. Regardless of
the type of cover used, each cell cover is fitted with a vent plug, which may be removed to inspect
the cell or to add water.
