Re: Uneven Water Loss in Batteries

Would it not be prudent to do a hydrometer test on each cell to see if you have a bad cell going? You say you top off batts each month? Was led ever exposed to the air? The only time I have had to add water is when batts are going bad, excessive charging, charger never stops charging because batts never reach full charge. I have not had to add water once this year, two year old batts, but I did not use much batts this year, no long trips.

Am I all wet with the hydrometer test? viscosity testing of a battery?
