I actually had to have mine replaced twice. The first one would stop charging after the car got warm and the motor got over 5k rpm. Turned out to be a bad "new" unit. Indy replaced again and all has been great since.

Just monitor it for a bit, better to be safe and save your new battery.
Will do, bud... good call. So I am looking for readings in the 130s?
