It is an 8 volt battery right? ..... Are they new? Are you sure the charger is connected correctly? They are all getting a charge? I am confused cuz those SG readings are 90% are you sure it is an 8v what the heck is going on

Yes its an 8 volt battery

Charger is working fine as far as i can see and hear the needle tries to kick in but doesnt, it moves about 1/4 inch and flicks back

All other batteries are at 100% charge

I checked the sg twice to be sure and both times it measured the same

T875 is a Trojan battery and should have a date code stamped into the Negative terminal.

Bring it up to 10 volts with the charger on.... then read it after it sits for an hour and then 2 .... See if it can hold any kind of a charge
