I've got a set of fifteen 8 volt US Battery 8VGC XC batteries purchased from a local supplier. The sales guy said they were special ordered with automotive terminal posts for another EV conversion, but the buyer backed out. I have an uneasy feeling that they may have been sitting in the warehouse for a while.
They each show about 8.25 volts. Is this an OK level?
I have a 1 amp 6V/12V motorcycle battery charger that I'm thinking of hooking up to the batteries individually just to keep them topped off so they don't have to sit idle any longer.
) mentions using the 6 volt setting, but I don't think that will have enough "push" to charge the 8 volts.
I've read on few other sites that using the 12V setting is OK as long as they don't have too many amps boiling the batteries over.
So the main question is: will briefly (30-60 minutes each) using the 12V charger setting on these 8V batteries hurt them?
