In the old heavy relay panel days pre80's the battery was just stand by duty no low battery indicator most panels.and 120 vac was taken to box to a heavy wound transformer which could run several sirens. When electronic boards came about the battery became integrated to the board to provide the energy needed to run the sirens. and 120 runs to a small wall transformer. after changing battery it could take up to 24 hr till battery is floated to proper voltage and panel sees it. aprox 13.5 most panels.

Well ..... yeah, I guess yer right.
What REALLY ticks me of though, are the ones that reverse polarity and blow each others fuse.

There should be a bill, in front of the NEC. Allowing transelectrical capacitors to get married, in their new polarity of course.

C'mon guys...
Put a meter on the battery, disconnect the AC, monitor the battery for one minute. At no time should the battery voltage drop below (preferably get anywhere close to) 12 volts.
The panel periodically checks the battery. If you replace it, you may have to wait quite a while before the LO Bat goes away.

"Stormin Mormon" gurgled:

Ah, Teranews.com. The sources of top-posting religion-selling spam. (I use that word 'religion' generously here), more like a cult.
And it's Google Groups, not Gmail, you dim-witted fucknut lunatic.
