I tried to get a full charge on the car battery. But was unable to more then 80% charge.
If you don't have a battery charger with a build in gage. The car repair show I went to told me I could check the battery life with voltage meter. This is the numbers they gave me. The battery I bought from Advanced auto never goes above 12.50v
Battery Voltage and State of Charge:
12.45v . . .
12.24v . . . 50% 12.06v .
. . 25% 11.89v . .

I bought a new battery for my ford ranger two weeks ago at the Advance auto parts in Sophia WV. Today with temperatures below zero the battery was dead.
Up on taking battery back to Advance auto parts they told me. That first have to charge the battery for 30 minutes. And then wait to see if it would hold a charge. In side at 70 degrees the battery will hold up.
But it's not 70 degrees, outside its zero.
So I have a $150 battery that will not hold a charge in the cold.
And Advance auto parts told me not their problem. I will never again buy from Advance auto parts.
Reason of review: Bad quality.
