Re: Batteries - What type house batteries to use & what voltage charge from Solar/Wind?

Hi Kent:

I run Trojan SCS225 flooded leaded acid batteries and I have followed the specific gravity (SG) readings of each cell of all my batteries and tracked them in a spreadsheet.  It is amazing to me to see the individual variability between cells and between batteries.  The one additional test I would recommend to you to verify that there is/isn't a problem would be to get a quality hydrometer and test the SG of each cell.  I found a bad single cell once on an otherwise normal appearing battery.  

Just a thought,
