    I have that electronic batt tester.. works good.. you need to choose your batt type and test method..

    Can test crank power din..

    Sa experience ko with motolite.. mataas pa lahat water level pero weak na talaga.. then when measured, high internal resistance na

    My Mazda CX-30 when I drove it 2 weeks ago it has around 14v when I checked.
    Earlier before driving from work I noticed mejo matagal yung engine start from the usual. When I check the voltage it only has around 12.2v. Pero nung nakauwi na ako nasa 13v na ulit.

    Should I be worried? Sakto parating na yung CTEK CT5 I ordered this 8.8.

    Btw I only use this cigar port device to check the battery voltage. Not sure if accurate sya.screenshot_20220810-003349.jpg

    I will check mine, how did you open it?

    yespo.
    most of these maintenance-less batteries have a warranty sticker covering the plastic plate that covers the filler holes.
    if one opens the battery, the warranty sticker is torn, voiding any remaining warranty. the plastic plate can then be prised open with one's fingers, or with a flat-blade screwdriver.

    if one wants to preserve warranty,
    one must wait until the warranty expires, then tear it off the very next day and inspect the water levels.

    yeah. i think that is supposed to be battery acid. i was under the impression na nakasanayan lang na distilled water nilalagay pero it is not supposed to be.

    battery acid is for brand new batteries na wala pa "tubig"

    the battery shop fills it when you buy a battery

    after using the battery for months/years, pag bumaba ang level, you use distilled water pandagdag

    battery water that you buy in shops is distilled water

    -

    sa pagkaalam ko hindi battery acid ang pandagdag

    it's only for brand new batteries
