CHARGE YOUR BATTERY WITH-
. aw " i m " m axx'
When you ue the customary line charge
on yoor battery it necessitates your battery be-
ing tied u? for 3'i hours. UUAPIA (liriuid
electricity) can be put in your battery "while
you wait" giving you a full charge almost in-
stantly. L'KADIA Stations are eouipped to give you
prompt attention and install a L'radia charge
within a few minutes.
I'HAIHA is positively non-injurious. In
fact l'radia is beneficial. The usual line
charge overdosed wth acids tenda to depreciate
your battery while L'radia builds up the
plates. L'radia solution is principally pure wa-
ter with specific gravity largely due to finely
dissolved minerals. L'radia service men usual-
ly demonstrate the abstnre of strong acid con-
tent by pounrp it freely on their bare hands.
SOME CONVINCING TESTS OF LRADIA
Py the fi llowir g rigid test you can prove
to your entire satisfaction the merits of l'ra-
dia." They were all made by the l'radia Com-
pany long lx fore it was decided to market the
Test 1 : Take battery that is fully charg-
ed by the old lino ehnrtre method rank with
starter until completely discharged; keep record
of time required to run battery down. Open
bat'ery for inspection. If the (l.ites have
buckled under the strain reseal battery and
fill with t'rarlia. Now run battery down with
starter again. Time operation nnd compare;
inspeit plates again and you will find that they
have returned to normal. We hape never
heard of anything that woul I do this except
I'rndi.T. l'radia should be used by every car
owner in the country for this reason alone.
Test 2. Take sulphated battery rine thor-
oughly with soda water empty and fill with
l'radia. Shake well and then observe that
l'radia has blasted off the sulphation. Kmpty
contents and refill with l'radia and our bat-
tery is ready for instant use. Another rea-
son for which car owners can well afford to
Test .1. Kemove plates that have buckled
from prolonged discharge from battery that
is nhorted by wornotit separators. Insert new
separators that have been soaked in L'radia for
at least four hours; replace plates and fill
battery with l'radia. Your battery is again
ready for immediate use.
l'radia Service does away with the extra
expense of battery rental while your battery is
being cha-ged. l'radia charge costs les
than the old method. It has been known to
give over f0 per cent more hours than line
charged batteries an additional service based
on cost per hour.
Yes l'radia eliminates much f your bat-
tery costs as well as solves your battery ser-
Kerause Uradia builds up the plates of your
battery and docs not overcharge or under-
charge it holds a strong uniform charge there-
fore adds to the power of your motor. An
intensified fat spark at all times nssires the
maximum force in combustion. Knjoy tho
thrill of a strong driving motor power by put-
ting a l'KAlIA charge in your battery.
URADIA A PRODUCT. PLUS A SERVICE
l'radia is handled by regular authorized
dealers with ami Ip facilities for giving the
most complete efficient battery service. L'ra-
dui st.itiot-s are iieir-g r.ipid'y placed in large
cities and towns nil over the country. These
men in charge are fully trained in the l'ra-
dia methods and ure qualified to render ef-
ficient battery service.
Kvery l'radia charge is OL'AKAN'TKED
to fulfill every claim made.
l'radia Stations will give you in a few
minuter "while you wait" a service that
formerly required days by the old system.
No matter how apgrevated your battery
problems may be drive into our l'radia Sta-
tion and tell your troubles. No charge for
ans-.vcring questions. All possible investiga-
tion is welcomed. Po it right now.
The freermg point of a l'radia charged
battery is lower than under the old system.
We have expert battery and ignition men
to serve you.
