[EVDL] Thermal walk-away on a Hawker
I have dropped the pack on my 94 Prizm and have been looking through the
batteries for status. One in particular (A2) was a bit lower on the load
test (100a load for 5 seconds, dropped to 10 volts instead of 10.5) so I
pulled it to test.
I put it on my load tester (26a load to 10.5 volts) and dischargd it.
Battery provided 8.5ah capacity which isn't bad for a 7 year old Hawker,
but is a bit less than the 10ah capacity under load I have in the rest
of the string. So I put it on my AGM smart charger (sears electronic
controlled) that does a nice charge to 14.4 volts and such.
Anyway, this morning I checked in and the battery was warm and the
charger was putting 2amps into the battery with a total of 30ah added.
Which was weird. The battery didn't go above 14.4 volts, so although it
seems to have gone into thermal walk-away did it lose electrolyte? Also
what's wrong with the battery, this is kind of odd.
