This battery was replaced and now the deviances are far less severe.
Formerly two meters in series on phase 2 of the spirals was reading 1
and also 1.2 A, for the Vellaman meter. The new readings show a 1.03
A reading for the same 1 amp current, so the error is now only 3 %.

As indicated it was....
HDN, correcting some errors.
