    Battery Tricks

    [QUOTE=bmorgil;7938]gmwillys... does this really work? /QUOTE]

    There are a lot of little tricks that give you just a couple of more weeks out of a battery that has come to the end of its road. Aspirins, fresh acid, several commercial "never buy a battery again" additives - but the fact is that if you want a reliable battery with the capacity you expect/need, a trip to the store is the best solution.

    I'm still debating a bit, but I think I am going to get a "battery minder" to put on the 6-volt battery in the truck. I really try to start it every week or so - but it sits a lot and I don't believe sitting that much is best on a battery.

    I'll decide about that come next winter hibernation.

    For all the Sheriff's seasonal equipment, we used battery tenders. They work great, as long as you remember to disconnect the harness before leaving in a rush. They make them with a solar panel as well, if the piece of equipment sits out doors.
