these are about 2 years old now. i guess it's time to get replacements
That seems about right. The longest I ever got out of any battery was about 3 to 4 years. But I was meticulous about rotating the batteries and ensuring I ran them dead before recharging.
Back in the day (10 years ago or so) I had a charger that would make sure the battery was fully discharged before it recharged it to make sure the battery would not develop a memory. I know they claim batteries today do not develop memories, but I still prefer not to take that chance.
i run these until dead or almost dead. once the counter fades it's time for a charged one.
charged both and did a V check. both showed 16.3-16.6V. checked severla times over the next few hours and they both settled in at about 15.3V. will monitor the life of each. used one today with no issues.
not a memory issue so i suspect an old age thing. time to put them on the ice flow and send them off to the sunset. hey Vince they're headed your way
