I may be preforming Resuscitation on a battery that is approaching its use-by date. Therefore it would be nice to know just how long they have been filled with acid. This then begs the question, to mlines, facade, Suzuki, or anyone with the knowledge: Do any you gentlemen know how to read the date code on the top of the battery?

I found a website in Japan, www.furukawadenchi.co.jp/english/products/trans/ however the "Hi Dash" Battery was not on that list.

What is making you think the battery is getting beyond it's service life? It is a new car and even a new model of that car, its not really likely that they have found an old battery in the corner of an outbuilding and thought it will do. Most factory batteries are good for 5 or 6 years minimum service even with limited mileage.

As usual for me, I wrote too much in the previous post and attracted the Mod! :ohmy:

So last first, Lambert, thank you for your confidence in the Battery, you are the only one to have made a positive comment.

My question (in e-mails) as to the Commissioning Date of the Battery met with "no, we can't help" and "silence", until I spoke with a local battery maker who seems to have most of the codes. From our deduction, it was probably made on 31 August 2018. He said that this type of Lead/Acid Battery should last 5-8 years in normal service and the formation of Lead Sulphate on the plates can occur in storage but this should disappear with normal use.

The addition of the chemical INOX will help to dissolve the sulphate. So for now, it's "drive on George", check the battery occasionally and all should be well! :)

Thank you to all who have read the topic.

After carefully monitoring the resting voltage of the battery, since adding INOX, I can now declare; Yes it works! :woohoo:

If you would like a copy of the table, PM me an email address. ;)
