What should a fully charged 12 volt deep cycle battery read?

Voltage on a fully charged battery will read 2.12 to 2.15 volts per cell, or 12.7 volts for a 12 volt battery. At 50% the reading will be 2.03 VPC (Volts Per Cell), and at 0% will be 1.75 VPC or less. Specific gravity will be about 1.265 for a fully charged cell, and 1.13 or less for a totally discharged cell.
A.

How many cells are there in a 12v lead acid battery?

So a 12 volt battery will be made up of 6 individual cells connected in series and fitted into a single case or container. It follows that a 6 volt battery has 3 cells and an 8 volt battery has 4 cells. The typical 12 volt lead-acid battery has 6 cells connected in series.
  • Which acid is used in batteries?

    sulfuric acid
  • Can you overcharge a lithium ion battery?

    The control system prevents overcharging, which can cause the lithium ion battery to overheat and potentially burn. This is why the Li-ion batteries are more expensive. The only way for the Li-ion battery to overcharge is if the charging system malfunctions, and then the battery will heat up while in the charger.
  • What is AGM on a battery?

    AGM (Absorbent glass mat) AGM batteries differ from flooded lead acid batteries in that the electrolyte is held in the glass mats, as opposed to freely flooding the plates. Very thin glass fibers are woven into a mat to increase surface area enough to hold sufficient electrolyte on the cells for their lifetime.
B.

What is the voltage of a fully charged car battery?

12.6 volts
  • How can you tell if a battery is good?

    All you need to perform the test and check if your alkaline batteries are juiced is a hard surface. Drop each battery (with the flat, negative end down) from a couple of inches up. If the battery is charged, it should make a solid thud and most likely stay standing.

  • What voltage is low for a car battery?

    The best way to check battery charge is with a digital voltmeter. A fully charged battery should read 12.65 volts. A reading of 12.45 volts equals about a 75% charge and is good enough for further testing. Anything less means the battery is low and needs to be recharged.
