How to evaluate the health of a battery?

The health of a maintenance free/tubular battery can be determined by checking the OCV (Open circuit voltage) of the battery. A healthy battery will have an OCV above 12.8V. Any voltage below this means the battery is not sufficiently charged and needs a charge. The typical OCV readings should be as follows

  • Just after unpacking at site : Minimum 12.80 V
  • Just after connecting on float : Minimum 13.30 V
  • After 2 days of float charging : Minimum 12.95 V
