Can recommend brand.

 

Apparently, my car battery can start my engine quite well but it cant hold charge long enough. 
When my Blackvue is running it will just drain till left 12v before it cut off. Battery CCA test show good. 

What i read is the alternator quick charge doesn't really charge the battery, only top off. You need a wall charger to really deep charge the battery. 
 

I top off the electrolyte and my specific gravity is less than 1.25 at 12 V

Either get from limbat or get one from sim lim tower basement.

I got the Vanson charger from SLT.

Too many vehicles at home, so i have been using this charger to charge the batteries, so far so good. Think been using this for 5 years min....

Honestly the power magic pro not good , cut off voltage at 12V is too low.

Either you add a secondary battery (those who really into ICE will do this), or add a Cell link B.

To desulphate and increase specific gravity, you need a power supply, charging at 15.8V.

However, you need to monitor s.g regularly and stop charging once it reach max.

A cheap power supply I use is gopher (or gophert), look for it at aliexpress.

I think i over dilute the acid. Thats why the specific gravity is so low. Now using the recond function to boil off the excess water
