    6th July :: ML V=12.82 :: Y=1.73KWh
    After 44 days, (6 weeks +) Topped up electrolyte with two cells was just showing the plates. Lowered ABS voltage to 14.95. Although I had taken account of the temperature I had not reduced the charging routine much and was disappointed to find some cells verging on damagingly low levels. Should write a bot about charging routine when voltage drops after FLOAT and then rises to below ABS bit stays at 14.65 if ABS at 14.95 or in winter 15.4 and 15.64

    1. Blade setup
    2. No Allen key and not indication of size so I have to fiddle around to find a fit which may not be the best and damage the hexagonal socket shape
    3. Plastic foot bob gets in the way and should have an option to click it horizontal so as not to use, or removable, like the height adjuster.
