Old Wrench It

New Member, Male, 64, from San Diego, CA

Reinstalled it, drove a short 4 miles and it seemed fine. Had only been getting 40 mpg at best prior, got 53 mpg on short test. Apr 16, 2018

      The modules I suspected by noticing there voltages fall faster are definitely on the weak side.

        Just doing a fast load check doesn't work. The discharge rate needs to be examined and then further tested for those modules discharging faster than .01 volts per 3 seconds. If it's discharging faster than .01 volts per 2 seconds it's highly suspect even at .01 v per 3 secs it should get at least a 10 minute discharge watching for sharp decline, if it stays near or above 7 volts for 20 minutes it should be good

      Load testing modules, how long you run a load test on a module?

        Started with 7.8 volts with a 12 volt headlight load. After 23 minutes it is still at 7.05. It's taking between 2 to 3 minutes to drop another .01 volts

        Looking around found on http://www.hybrids.co.nz/ that a range of 40 to 75 minutes is an extensive test to make sure of the quality of a battery's strength values. The quick test on my original modules seems to indicate they're all still 'good'. But did notice some that seemed to start dropping more quickly than others, so will go back to do more intensive tests on the ones that drop voltage faster
