tested gel cells

Finally tested the four gel cell deep cycle batteries from the South Pickering Amateur Radio club. This after charging them for a few hours to overnight. And then letting them sit overnight (to scrub off surface voltage). Tested in the order that I charged them. Room temp (25.4°C).

I always get nervous doing this. Put my safety glasses on. Looked away...
  • alpha: 13.19
  • bravo: 13.42
  • charlie: 13.33
  • delta: 13.35
Looking good (I think).

Phil said he got 13.24 of his...

Decided to test my ole' trusty portable car booster battery pack: 13.15. Interesting.
