Second test run

Hello everyone. I have started retesting the 3 battery setup today. I had a few bad batteries and at first could not get the unit running. After I added new water to one of the batteries and waiting 20 minutes I manually turned the rotor and it is slowly spinning, occasionally now speeding up then almost stopping.
If using SLA batteries remember most of the time they go bad because they dry out easily. The battery I am using I added some sea salt to, to see if i could replate the cells and improve the conductivity.

I will post later today when i get time.

-sidenote, even though i could not get the unit running with some bad batteries, I noticed that the voltage on the bad battery sometimes would temporarily get up in voltage
