    Icon9 Battery voltage

    Hi, I have a big Kinetik battery. Recently I took it out of the car to charge at home, I've charged it a few times doing trickle charge and all that, when the charger says it's completely charged I measure the voltage with the DMM and it reads high 13's v and after a while the voltage starts dropping fast and then stays at 10.64v .

    1- Why is this happening?

    2- Is there any way to fix this problem?

    3- If there's no solution, Can I get money for this battery as is?

    Thank you.

    Re: Battery voltage

    It has a bad cell and to my knowledge, there's nothing that can be done to help it. As for selling it... It'll bring six bucks as a core.

    Re: Battery voltage

    Sounds like a bad cell to me. No warranty?

    Re: Battery voltage

    I've charged it and trickle charged it more than 5 times with a smart charger and that happens. No warranty on this battery left.

    I waited a few days to measure the battery resting voltage and post it here.

    So, there's no way to fix this battery and I will have to throw this battery and money away?

    How old is the battery? You might be able to get discounted for a core charge or something. Otherwise you're basically SOL.

    Yeah I'm not surprised then, who knows how old the battery actually is. Batteries typically only last a couple years, especially car audio batteries.
