Battery hydrometer results meaning?

Recommended Posts


Roger, I can only suggest that, every so often, you unload your battery bank to perform an equalizing charge. For my personal deep-cycle flooded lead-acid battery banks, I tended to do that once a month. Industrial sized battery banks on submarines and nuke plants were also monthly.

I'm not sure of the life of golf cart batteries, but the batteries I've dealt with have expected lives of 7-10 years.

Note: I do think performing equalizing charges are a pain in the butt, so I bought a gel-type battery bank for my outbuilding system so that renter didn't need to fool with the batteries at all.
