pull your battery yet?

just discovered one of my batteries has a short in one of the cells!

i was adding water to them and decided to give both of them a charge to stir the electrolyte before putting them away for the rest of the winter.

one of the batteries was running about 8 amps and got quite warm! downright hot to the touch!!

guess i be shopping for new ones before spring!

you call them ferrets, i call them weasels.
