10.2 Volt Battery


Recommended Posts

My little toy died on the day before I took her off the road for winter, I had a short blast and it wouldn't restart,so recharge the battery and start looking for an earth fault everything seems ok but the battery is only reading 10.2 volts could this be the problem?

Dead cell is often lead buildup in bottom of cell.

Lead is plated on and off positive plate and bits flake off, fall to the bottom of cell, build up and short out cell.

So dead cell is flat and short is fairly resistive so any load drops volts further.

My view on batteries is that the longer the guarantee the better the battery.
