• Deep Discharge

    From sciencedirect.com Irreversible Changes of Active Material Caused by Deep Discharge Deep discharge of batteries often leads to mechanical stresses in the plates, which leads to shedding, poor conductivity, and a diminished lifetime of the system.…More »
  • Electrolyte Temperature

    Electrolyte : Here is a copy of info from: http://www.trojanbattery.com/tech-support/faq/ 9. Can a flooded battery freeze? The only way that a battery can freeze is if it is left in a state of partial or complete discharge. As the state of charge in a…More »
  • Hydrometers

    Update: May 28th 2020 Received the Durite 472. It's larger than I thought but usuable. The liquid in the thermometer is red as is the surround so it's difficult to read the temp.Spoke to a guy at tech 01255 555200 for over half an hour ~ details should…More »
  • Specific Gravity

    A lead acid battery will have a ration of sulfuric acid and water as the electrolyte. The process of charging forces any sulfate from the battery plates back to the electrolyte which increases it's specific gravity. The specific gravity of pure water is…More »
