Re: Solar charge controller question
If the battery was bursting at 12.9v, it might have been "cooked" by a bad controller and then burst. Or, it might have been dried out resulting in a burst from "normal" and proper charging. At least in my understanding, what you saw doesn't give you a definite cause and effect, it could have gone either way.
