Can i use the desulfate feature with a standard battery charger to bring these back to life?
i put a post up about a month ago about three 6 volt trogens i have in my shed up camp that have been sitting for 3 years now untouched, keep in mind this is NE ohio with some pretty good winters......i needed one last month so i pulled all 3 out to see if any voltage in them and all 3 were still over 5.8 volts forget the exact#,s but i put them in my other post................i threw them in a cart i was playing with with 3 other batteries jumped on and drove around the block then put charger on cart........bottom line all 3 are still as good as new................and 2 of them ( i still have one ) are in 2 different carts driving daily....................................

Nice!! I might try and put these back in and see what happens with charging them. The only bad thing about these 12v big batterys is they will move around if you do anything wild on the cart which is about daily. haha

They say c9 on them. What does that mean? Is that a model number of the battery?

c would be March and 9 could mean either 99 or 09 as the date coding has not changed and Trojan does not put a 0 before their year code although that would have been helpful to do in this instance lol
