quickie question on charging a car battery
« on: February 27, 2006, 11:04:18 PM »
Just a quick. question on charging a car battery.


I just bought yet another Geo Metro.  This one's been sitting awhile, and the battery is pretty dead.  I topped off all the cells with distilled H2O and have had the thing hooked up to my cheapo B&W 2A charger for the last 4 days now.


Of the 6 cells, 4 of them are bubbling nicely, and 2 only barely so.  I tried to turn the car over yesterday, and got nothing out of it (it does start with a jump start, though).


I'm not quite ready to give up on this battery yet (payday isn't for another 2 weeks).  I thought I knew how to revive an old car battery, but none of my regular tricks have worked so far.  I haven't found my hygrometer since I've moved, so I haven't checked specific gravity yet.  I'm about ready to go out and build myself a high dc voltage pulser, but don't quite want to go there yet.  Anybody got any other ideas?
