Batteries should be checked that the liquid does not fall below the top of the plates.
12.65 volts is 100%, less than 12 is discharged.
With car running the alternator should be charging at 14 to 14 1/2 volts across the battery terminals.

I think I'll go out and buy a replacement battery for my Rambler today from Costco.
It will be to replace the 21 year old Motorcraft that is in it now.
Or maybe I'll go and check its voltage first.
