Gell Battery break in?

I had a set of Deka Gell batterys. They were 5 years old and started loosing range. I just bought a New set of Deka gells. The new batterys don’t seem any more OR as strong as my old Deka’s. Should I be worried or will the new batterys break in or gain power and range after a few charge cycles.

I have a specific route I drive I know what my battery % should be along the route. That was my first indication that the new batterys were not as strong as my 5 year old Deka’s.

Disclaimer; my 5 year old Deka’s were (refreshed) last year. When I say refreshed I’m talking about battery restoration threw specific charge cycles

Do 20 cycles and report back.

Don’t know what year or charger your GEM has. Is it set for GEL batteries? If it is a Zivan, has it been “micro upgraded”? We have had a few Dekka GELs last a whole five years.


I have a Quick Charge multi bank charger. I have the charge profile set on "Gell"
I haven’t put but 1-2 cycles on my battery’s the weather is not working with me :slight_smile:

We are in the same situation, what was the outcome?
