Bingo.....second strongest recorded at the time, 9.3 Richter 9.8 moment magnitude, yep quite a rideEarth quake.
Could well be that i was reading a report dated April, 12I knew of the earthquake, I wasn’t familiar of its name, it’d make a pretty good documentary.
Btw Wikipedia says it was March 27, not quite April, maybe due to time zones were different back then?
WOW!!! Its like Jerry springer :DI do hope the OP eventually comes back to check on his thread, he’s in for quite a surprise.
While I agree that mixing lead batteries of different ages in series is more problematic, there are issues with parallel too. The older batteries having a higher resistance will not work as hard. The new batteries will make up the difference. After the sun goes down all batteries will attempt to equalize themselves. The old batteries are not capable of reaching as high a charge as the new batteries but the new batteries will try to get them there. Therefore all of the batteries wind up in a lower state of charge
You are exactly correct, few people know that Alaska crosses the prime meridan and extends to 172 degrees eastAlaska is the farthest North, east, and west.
Because it crosses the prime meridian or whatever its called
Sorry to be quoting from the first page, but the thread seemed to go off topic quite a while ago.
I am in the camp that if running parallel, there is little to no degradation when mixing different age batteries (if they are will maintained). I have been doing it for over 10 years. I have a mix of batteries that have up to a 4 year spread. If one becomes problematic (rare), I will just pop in a new one and carry on.
Unless you have a battery that will just not take a charge, I have found that they all "equalize" fairly well. If there is any shortening of life, it is insignificant as compared to the cost replacing all of the batteries just to have them all the same age as some promote.
Just my "real world" $.02
