Voltage should be 13.8 VDC. Lower will under chagre. over will cook the battery. You will hear this many times. Throw the Univolt away. Get a modern three stage charger.

Check the charge at the battery

Use a volt meter to see what the battery voltage is charging at! It is best if it holds around 13.8 VDC. Happy Trails, Ed

Mine was holding steady @13.83, so at least I got that going for me.
