TOO MANY ELECTRICAL ACCES
SOMES MAY DIIAIN BATTIIHY
It is difficult for the motorist to
day lo carry liimsolf back Ion or
twolvo years, to Iho lime wlion all
raw woro cranked by hand and
wlion the most powerful headlights
woro dopondont upon acolylone roa
for tholr brillianoy.
Dut let the battery go "bad,". and
lot tho averago man get out lo crank
his car orí a rainy night, wUh Uio
road anklcv-dccp in mud, and ho will
realizo hoW deeply ho is indebted
lo the storage battery for much of
his motoring comfort.
Not only s his engine started and
hiB way illuminated at the touch of
i button but numerous othor con
veniences have been added which,
a few years ago would have been
considered foolish flights of the im
agination. Many of the luxurious sedans of
loday arc utpiippod by the manufac
turer with electric cigar lighters,
I'loctric stop illuminators, and nu
merous other electrical appliances
thai add lo the comfort and Joy
of motoring.
Where such appliances are stand
ard uiuipmen(, installed by Ihc man
ufacturer of the car, it can be taken
for granted that they do not make
too great n demand on the capacity
of the storage battery. The car tie
signers have seen to that.
Hut some car owners add so many
electrical contrivances that, in the
aggregate, they are a heavy drain
nn the battery. This is sometimes
tine of the reasons for its apparent
inability lo retain a charge.
Mr. J. Allen Wikoff, manager of
I he local Exidc station, says on this
Hiih.iec(,"Hcatiiig devices of any kind,
such as electric vulennizors, electric
eignr lighters, electric steering
wheel warmers, ele., consume far
more current than does the ordinary
light hull).
And willi the average owner using
his cur in the winter only for short
runs very often at night his gen
era tor can only put into his bat
tery a limited amount of electrical
energy. If I here is added too many
elecric applliances which consume
current in excess nf what Hie de
signers intended should be drawn
from Iho battery, it is easy to see
what will happen. It is the old case
nf "burning the canille at both ends.
It simply can't be dono for any
length of lime.
"Those various elect ric appliances
are good things. They add lo the
joy and convenience of motoring.
Hut before loo many are added, it
would he well to consult a reliable
service slution and see that the bat
lory is in condition to stand the
additional work imposed upon il.
"With very liltle trouble the gen
erator can lie adjusted to give more
eurrent if necessary, but the com
petent service man can readily tell
if this is necessary, l'lay safe; ask
him first, if you would gel the ut
most from your battery."
