For batteries, you may collect rain water in a clean tray. Rain is a natural distillation process, only some dust gets added to it during rain fall. You can filter it to remove these dust particles.

Ac water contains more dust than rain water…

Yes, you can use air conditioner’s water as it is distilled (condensed from the moisture of room). But, make sure, you filter it using a filter paper before poring it into batteries. It is necessary to filter out the dust.

The amount of pollution in air these days is very high. So rain water is not a good option because it absorbs acids from air.

If you want to use rain water collect water after 30 mins of rain.
