Battery Noise

4 posts in this topic

I have a 24volt trolling system with an on-board charger. My batteries are Interestate and I've had them for four years. Lately, one of the batteries makes noise while charging. It sounds like something is boiling in the battery. Fluid level in the battery is good, as I just checked the level. Any ideas? Thanks.

When you charge a battery they will bubble and heat up. Make sure the ventilation is clear on the battery so the pressure doesn't build.

If they both aren't doing the same thing you may have a problem in the near future - they aren't charging balanced and equally.

What those guys said.

Sounds like both batteries are the same size.

I'd probably charge them separately and then test them to see if one has gone bad.

      Never did report back from last weekend.  We fished Friday evening through Sunday morning.  Friday and Saturday were pretty slow, between 5 of us we had about 6 keepers nothing over 15", and were fishing pretty hard, moving a lot.  Got up early Sunday morning and had a great bite on a main lake reef, we ended up keeping a limit between the 3 of us that were out there.  The other two were pretty disappointed they slept in.  We were sitting in 28' of water and caught most of our fish on minnow heads and a rattle jig, as well as a couple slot fish on a shiner under a tip up.
