Re: Uneven Water Loss in Batteries
And one more for the books...
A damaged battery cable will carry less electrical energy than a battery cable in good repair. A battery cable can become damaged by mechanical stresses or corrosion. It is important, therefore, to periodically replace battery cables that are installed in an environment where there is vibration, movement, or corrosive chemicals. An ohmmeter or a digital multimeter may be used to test a suspected bad battery cable. If the ohmmeter measures a high degree of resistance in the cable, the cable should be replaced.
Sorry no scientific data to back that up.
