    Default maintenance free battery for 2005 honda civic vti

    hi..
    just gave token money for a silver 2005 Honda Civic Vti Oriel Prosmatic . The guy didn't drive it for 2 months so the battery is dead. I am thinking of putting a maintenance free battery. Any recommendation on brand & model? thanks

    ^^ u mean that huge dropper like thing that tells the pH or specific gravity or something? how does it give the volts n how can i do the standing voltage test? i think its alright cuz it starts with a half a second *sulf.

    The hydrometer will show you the specific gravity of the electrolyte in the cells - and then you would need a digital voltmeter to check your voltage

    SG should be 1.250 to 1.270 for proper SG - higher - you have doped it with acid - low means its either down or very dilute

    the standing voltage check is done with car rested for two hours then, the headlamps turned on for 2 minutes - switch off - then read the battery volts

    that should be 12.6 for a fully charged battery, anything less than that is not fully charged and a battery with a reading low as 11.9V means its completely dead.

    difference of .50 points on the SG scale between any 2 cells means the cell is dead - replace battery

    Proper SG with low voltage = sulphated battery - throw it away
    higher SG with high voltage = too much electrolyte - add water
    lower SG with low voltage = too much water - add 1.400 SG acid
