FIAMM Battery original.
The indicator I had over the last 2 months before the Battery was condemned and changed by the RAC was Battery terminal volts always fell to about 11.65 v after driving ...within 4 to 5 days. I don't use crazy Stop/Start. Monitor using ICE Service Status on menu or voltmeter.

I charged it (foolishly) day before arrival of RAC having failed to get car to start for the first time in 1 year. It charged IMO too quickly at approx 3.5 Amps..took approx 45 mins. RAC tester subsequently passed it OK.

On second RAC call out 10 days later I did not charge it. RAC tester recorded about 55% capacity and REPLACE. RAC guy said he was waiting for my number plate to turn up again... :D

Commonly a Battery should charge for about 7 to 8 hours before reaching full charge...depends on Batt state of course. In my long experience, when a car starter motor won't turn, then the Battery has near zero capacity so the time length of charge should be as said...that in fact is the standard 10 hour rate.

The 10 hour rate is simple. A 70 AH (Ampere Hour) Battery that cars commonly use should charge at a maximum of 7 Amps for 10 hours. Higher will damage it and to the extent of boiling it!

Hi Colin, I think you have to change your „Header“ - „Thankfully unbury (retired)“ as this question of Batteries is turning into a Major Project for you with no Pay - Have a Good Day Dave 😂
