time to collect the core charge

Took six of my original batteries out of service today...almost 6 years old.  They did pretty good for me considering all the abuse they took over the years.  Didn't bother removing a bunch of old wires from the wind turbine days because this system is going to move over to the hut when the new system for the greenhouse get's installed.  77,94,54,0,B,.12

John - could you say what things you operate from your batteries and the wattage specs?

Looks like you need to use the soda on your old batteries

I'd like to know what you use the batteries for as well. We know you use it for your laptop and to power outside camera? What else?

Dear John,

Would you please tell us a little about the elevated post connectors you are using on your batteries? I've never seen those before.

Did you know that if a 12 volt battery is charged to 16.2 volts; it can last a lifetime? Its all about chemistry. Its a fact that charging systems cause battery failure! Its intentional by design! There is a battery charger called a tesla charger that will take a dead battery and bring it back to 90%+ of new!! I really suggest you look into it!
