Thank you very much for your response. Its a very detailed explaination on the internal resistance of the battery and its a good learning. Also today AM when I check the voltage across the terminals of the battery after the car was parked for almost 15 hrs without starting the voltage measured was 12.47 Volts. I have ordered for a 1000 Amp clamp on Ammeter. Will I be able to check the current of the battery by connecting one lead to the positive terminal and the other lead to the body of the car. Also since the battery is 570Amp what is the ideal current the battery should read. Since its a new battery should it read an ampere rating of above 550 Amp. What is the threshold reading below which I must be worried.
