Does your charger have a meter to show the amount of charge rate? What is the battery voltage reading with the lamp connected?
----- ORIGINAL MESSAGE FOLLOWS -----
I purchased a 6 volt reproduction battery from castlelnadparts.com.
It sat dry for several months, then I recently put in the electrolyte, put it on a six vole charger overnight.
It registers 6 volts on my multimeter, but it will not light up a 6 volt bulb.
Question should I junk it and go the other route where a more modern battery fits in the repro box ?
How can I tell if it is 12 amps? that is what I need isnt it?
