A battery is a critical component in the electrical system of any car. Keeping track of the battery electrolyte level is part of the routine maintenance of any car. When a battery is low on electrolyte fluid in any of the individual cells in the battery, it will not provide enough electrical energy to start the car. To keep the battery in optimal condition, it may be necessary to periodically top up the battery cell electrolyte levels.
