I have a scooter with 5 12V VRLA batts in series for 60V. The pack after 150 charge cycles altogether is yielding lowered range for the scooter. In another thread it has been proposed that individual battery leads can be attached while still connected in series. The purpose is to provide an equalizing charge to each battery at up to 16V at 1 amp or less.
Could someone with experience/education weigh in on whether this is a good idea? I am concerned about the result with the series wiring still in place.
