Battery Wrenches,

The problem with recombination style caps is they require using a low absorb 
voltage, about 2.35 to 2.4 Vpc. I am a big fan of aggressive charge voltage for 
many flooded battery types. Doing so produces more evolution of gasses. These 
and other caps can be overwhelmed by this. In addition, the caps should be 
removed for equalization charges. 

Water Miser caps are not recombination caps, they use condensing beads to trap 
moisture and drip back into the cell. We have sold many hundreds of Water Miser 
caps and some customers report up to 5 months between watering.
