Re: Battery mystery

You could have a dead cell. Best way to determine this is with a hydrometer. The specific gravity of each cell should be equal and read 1.275. If the cell is shorted, your battery charger would not be able to detect this and indicate that the battery is fully charged, while you may have a shorted cell.
