    I picked up a Norsk 15ah battery at Reeds yesterday. They didn’t have Norsk chargers and I was told to grab the Dakota Lithium charger, and I am making sure this is going to work. When I have the charger attached the display on the battery reads 100% but when I unhook it,it drops to 83-85% and stays there. This doesn’t seem normal to me.

    I think I recall others saying the batteries have some type of break in period. Once you discharge and recharge it a few times I’m guessing you will see different results.

    The charger should work just fine.

    Fully charged my neighbors old style 15ah Norsk reads 14.4-14.5v.

    Same for my Amped’s.

    So I would put a voltmeter on it and see where you are at.

    I don’t know anything about a battery needing to go through a couple deplete/charge cycles before 100% capacity. I’ve never experienced that.

    Maybe give Norsk a call and ask.

    Thanks for the replies so far, I did send an email to norsk asking the same so we’ll see what they say.

    Well, the response from Norsk said to run it down and recharge to reset the meter on top of the battery so we’ll see if that works.
