When conducting a mechanic’s load test, how does the battery’s load voltage measurement relate to its state of charge?
When conducting a mechanic’s load test on a Hawker® ARMASAFE™ Plus 6TAGM battery, be certain you are using a load tester that’s rated for it!

That Shelf Life pertains to a new battery that has not yet been placed into service? The Hawker® ARMASAFE™ Plus 6TAGM battery is required to have a 24-month shelf life, but actually has a 30-month shelf life (when consistently stored at 77°F (25°C)! Furthermore, per MIL-PRF 32143C, the battery has been designed to still be able to deliver at least 50% of its rated capacity at the end of the 24-month period…and that’s before recharging it!!!
