If the final voltage is lower than listed on the battery case it means that the battery is end of life;
  • In the case of a lead batteryYou can bypass it using car ignition wires. Simply plug them in to a charged battery. For your safety, we recommend that you start with the black cable (-) and then the red cable (+).
