Re: Adding batteries 1

Watch out for an existing battery getting or having a bad/partially bad cel.
ie:the old bat will no longer reach 13.x /12.x. because one cel is less than nominal 2v.Had that happen & bad bat. drains new bat down to it's level,leaving new bat constantly undercharged.Check old bat really well before paralleling new bat.
