Bought some distilled water today to add to the boat batteries.

Had a 29 series trolling battery that I bought at Walmart in 11/17. So not very old. It took almost 1/2 gallon of water to get it back to the correct level.

Other 2 batteries took about a cup a piece. So just because you purchase a new battery, it doesn't mean there isn't a reason to check the water level.

I would check the output of your battery charger.

For any battery brand, there is a code stamped on the battery. Don't pay attention to the tag that says 'this date'. It is the coded date on the battery itself that matters the most. Use Google to get what the codes mean.

sometimes if you have a weak cell, the charger will run and run to try and achieve full charge, the result is heat, and evaporation of the electrolyte. Or there could be leakage and this causes the same thing. may want to go to autozone or orielys and have them load tested.
