i was charging the first 3 batterys and i usually use multi meter while charging to see how much they are charged,i went ahead and tested all of them all of them measured 12.2v there was one that measure 11.9v....my question is could i save it? i unscrewed the little caps and one was low,what would i use to refill? distilled water i guess :confused:

thanks
hope i don't have to buy new battery :(

here is how they look with all the caps at the top

only use distilled water, sometimes well water will have sediments in it that will neutralize the acid in the battery ;)

go to o reily auto parts they sell battery acid by da gallon  for 7 bucks n change it do da dam thing
We'll maybe...

if you need to just top it off, use water. I remember something about to much acid can shorten the batteries life.

If you have a dry battery then you will need to buy electrolyte (battery acid).
