Blogger…can u solve my problem plz…i bought a new AGS battery GX 200F…when dealer was pouring electrolyte he checked specific gravity and it was 1.22, i asked this needs to be 1.25 he said yes once u charge it fully it will be 1.25 or 1.28…i brought battery home and also bought a hydrometer…now it like been three weeks…when i check specific gravity when battery is fully charged shown by homage inverter the specific gravity of 5 cells is 1.20 and one cell below 1.20…whats the problem battery seems to work…and it gave me 4 hours backup on core i3 desktop with graphics card so watts of deskitop is more than 200 watts.it gave 4 hour backup and was still going??? so what the problem one cell which shows specific gravity very low also seem to have a little oil on the surface) like when u pour two or 3 oil drops on water)…what ur experience say about this?
When battery is fully charged, its specific gravity should be 1.265-1.280. There are many possible reasons for your problem:
- Charger is cutting off charging earlier.
-One cell which shows relatively less specific gravity is readily degrading in quality.
-Dealer has not prepared electrolyte with distilled water.
-The ratio of water and sulphuric acid in electrolyte is incorrect.
