but more ...it's ok...................why this diffrence even in battery???

and he told me....the Rocket,Voltage battries in Asia are the same

I have now Korean battery....and I ask brother to check dad car..11.5v while crancking...the same drop...so I think USA battery build for harsh weather
IDK about the diff between an Asian and an American battery, but even my small 12V lawnmower battery would be dead at 11.5V. Not talking about while the engine is being cranked, I'm talking about the battery at rest after the surface charge is removed.

The way a wet cell battery is configured, I don't see how it could be built to have less voltage regardless of where it made, unless the value of a volt is different there than here. Which I can't see happening, either. But who knows- stranger things have happened I suppose.
