GC2 update

I mentioned earlier that I’d picked up some abused Duracell GC2 off craigslist for testing and for use as cores if it came to that.

Since then they have been on my DIY converter setup and are acting fairly normal.  They come up to Vabs and bubble as one would expect.  They hold Vfloat at C/200 and don’t plummet immediately when charging is removed.  They handle light loads without exploding.

Still, I assume capacity is seriously compromised.   If I had an inverter I’d hammer it a bit and see how bad they crater but for now I will upgrade the Duracells from completely hosed to mostly hosed.
