Can I use sodium chloride injection ip (0.9% W/V) instead of distilled water to fill a lead acid battery?


No, because it contains conductive ions of sodium and chloride.

The water you put into batteries is deionized/distilled/purified water to especially remove any conductive ions.

    \$\begingroup\$ cooling the water vapour that came from boiling water That is what we call "distilled water". Does the answer say you can use distilled water? Realize that in most DIY stores, they sell deionized water which is cheap and will do the job. Distilling your own water sounds like too much trouble. \$\endgroup\$ Sep 21 '21 at 7:52
