A lot of power fir this time of year.
Well, you will have a full log of the batteries from the BMV so that will be a good indication of how they perform.Today hooray! Two batteries arrived for Battery Megastore. One @12.74 volts and the other @12.75 volts.
Too be honest I don't think a battery guarantee is worth while.
For just the time spent dealing with them we could have earnt enough to buy four of them.
They will be going on charge this afternoon. I feel I should run a capacity test. But then life is for living and I've waisted enough time on this.
I'll fit them in a few days during the clean and stocking for the southern meet. It's much easier to do this at work as it has better resources.
Just fishing Dave, it's the only thing the two batteries have in common. I guess I can prove the idea by adding a temporary link wire in before removing the fitted link.I can't see how a link cable can cause an imbalance? losses yes, but not an imbalance on a single series connection.
Just had a thought on your battery imbalance and the battery link which I had not considered before ....Just fishing Dave, it's the only thing the two batteries have in common. I guess I can prove the idea by adding a temporary link wire in before removing the fitted link.
Makes a lot of sense Dave. My link cable is not the prettiest, so it would be a good idea to replace and alter it. The imbalance only shows up towards the end of charge btw.(I guess ideally you need the midpoint connection to be the midpoint in the link cable. maybe cut a slit in the insulation and solder a fly-wire to tap onto?)
Yes that would be the perfect answer. When I got Murky the link cable was seriously horrible. So I made a horrible cable with one end cut from a scrap car. For many years I have intended to replace it. Soon as the lid is shut, the memory of it goes away.Think the cable was around 3 inches long end to end?
