Every morning I come down the ladder, deal with LB’s insecurity issues, then take a hightech composition book down off the shelf and record certain bits of data, including indicated battery voltage.
This morning’s voltage reading was…anomalous…
I also expect the system to hit float around 10, which is normal for a sunny day. All it means is that I didn’t do anything profligate with electricity last night, because I wanted to see if the morning reading and the daily charge-up time went as expected.
It’s logical that they should, A is A, but sometimes it turns out A isn’t really A because I don’t know as much about what I’m doing as I think I do. Logic based on ignorance rarely works out well. So before I install a disco ball or an electric furnace or something, let’s check our premises.
The next question will be – should I happen to go nuts with the electricity overnight or during a gloomy spell, can my oddbit solar panel collection recharge the batteries in a reasonable day? I plan to approach the answer to that question in a gingerly but determined fashion. I’ll just keep telling myself it doesn’t really matter – I originally thought these batteries were junk anyway so if I dig myself into a hole I can always reinstall the Interstates.
