    On this day in history

    before you read this please remember that "Pikey" "did" , "nacker" & "tinker" are racist insults to Gypsy . Romani & Traveller people . On this day, 2 August 1944, around 4000 Roma people in the Auschwitz-Birkenau concentration camp resisted being taken to the gas chambers. The SS swarmed...

    Battery holding charge issue....

    maybe a Ctek charger would be the solution ? V is a pretty crude way of measuring battery capacity. A battery should be at rest -neither being charged or discharged - for at lest 1 hour before measuring voltage will give an accurate reading.The rate of discharge also affects a batteries...
