Do any of you know much about these Gel batteries.
The only involvment I have with them is when I replaced two on a friends “mobility scooter”.
When I talked to the manufacture of the scooter, they said that if you let them drain to nothing they can never be recharged.
That is what happened…the person was hospitalized and no one was there to plug in the charger.
I ask because I know my friends plow truck has Gel batteries, new from last year, but I also know that the batteries are dead now.
I know he must have wired something up wrong and something is draining the batteries, but he doesn’t care to fix the problem.
I really don’t care to work on the thing anyway…he’s a “throw the trash on the floor until it blocks your view” kind of guy & I wouldn’t
drive this heap on the road without the paramedic’s following close.
So my question is can these batteries be recharged from a total discharge.
