I use a 1.2 exponent on initial set-up for T-145's, then after 2 condition cycles I change it to 1.14. and it remains true, for about 4 years as long as the charge cycle is set up properly.
I have a friend, who worked for Trace when this anomaly first appeared. Trace was the first inverter
manufacture to publish Peukert Factors for the major bats...manufact... sold
in the NW. He confirmed that the bat test for the T-45's were an anomaly, but tested to 1.14 after condition cycle everytime.
I am on the second set of set of T-45's in my own boat
, first set installed 2003. They were; 2X6X3 in parallel for 12 volt nominal. I am now on the second set two years, and they are balanced to the bat mon at 1.14.
We are just back from 45 days away from shore power
, an 85 watt SP, and an 3.6 kw DC generator
