Re: Battery gone??
Problems could be:
1. Meter needs calibrating
2. Battery charger meter is broken
3. Battery in a very low state of charge to begin
4. Battery is toast
With charger on battery and recharging, if battery takes more than 16 volts to recharge, battery is toast. However, a good automatic charger would adjust/lower the output voltage to prevent boiling.
Seeing bubbles is okay and the battery side is warm to the touch. Eventually, the battery will become fully charged. But, if there is a mist above the battery and the side is hot, forget it, get another battery.
My Rule-Of-Thumb is 2 CCA's for every cubic inch. Also, large cables, 1 AWG, and clean connections go hand-in-hand.
