It finally arrives, a 115+ lb battery was packaged in a tide laundry detergent box, with less than a 1" surrounding of home insulation foam around it. Beat to hell and back, but the batt looked to be ok.
At this time, i put the battery in my shop (on a wooden battery rack) and checked the voltage. It was resting a 3.6v. I think to myself Hmmm... He said he tested them all to make sure they were charged, guess he missed one. And then wrote it off as it would need charged.
Then about a month ago i decide to finally install the battery so i begin to charge it. I charge it for ~5 hours on a 2amp trickle charge. I go to read the voltage and it's around 5-6v.
So i charge overnight, check the voltage in the AM and it's 7-8v. So i let it charge a few more hours and the voltage wasn't going any higher. So i disconnected my battery charger and left the DMM on, and 5-6 hours later the battery was resting at 3.6v.
Now i know how to use a batt charger, and i even used two different models to no success. I then try to contact him to let him know that the battery was junk... Here's the convo.
Then he asks me my shipping/paypal info, so i tell him. His reply after that is...Originally Posted by F A T B O Y
Then i replied...I load test every batt I ship out and I know it wasnt dead when you got it. Most batts leave here in the high 12,s none under 12.5
and thats how I get them I dont have to charge them. You shouldnt have needed to charge it before installing it!
You also said it was "3volts" when you got it ..well I just went out and put a volt meter to every battery I have , all the ones Im getting ready to ship out were over 12.6 I also checked a few others that Ive had sitting around for months that have been abused and set to the side dead and they still read over 9 volts
So how could yours have been 3volts?... I dont know what you done to it . maybe your charger is messed up or you hooked it up wrong but I know it didnt arrive to you doa at 3volts

To which i replied...If i said i only had 1 hr500 left then it was before i knew i could get more hr500,s
and I know it had plenty packing if it didnt it would be in pieces.
Im not hard to get along with as most people know but I hate *******s I got no respect for them and thats how your coming off to me saying all this bull **** and being an ******* about the situation
If you wouldve played it cool you would be getting another batt shipped to you but as of now I dont really give a ****

That was well over a week ago, and he's been online and posting since then. He's now avoiding me.
He sent me a junk battery, and i think he knew it was that way because he thought he'd get over on me cause i've only posted on CA a few times. He told me that was his last one, when he had HX500's, more HR500's, and the C&D i was looking for originally.
