The following charging methods are recommended to ensure a long battery life:
(Always use a voltage regulated charger with voltage limits set as described below.)
These batteries are designed for starting and deep cycle applications and for use in vehicles with large accessory loads.
Recommended Charging Information
Alternator: 13.65 to 15.0 volts
Battery Charger: 13.8 to 15.0 volts; 10 amps maximum; 6-12 hours approximate
Float Charge: 13.2 to 13.8 volts; 1 amp maximum; (indefinite time at lower voltages)
Rapid Recharge (Constant voltage charger): Maximum voltage 15.6 volts. No current limit as long as battery temperature remains below 125F (51.7C). Charge until current drops below 1 amp
Cyclic or Series String Applications::
14.7 volts. No current limit as long as battery temperature remains below 125F (51.7C). When current falls below 1 amp, finish with 2 amp constant current for 1 hour.
All limits must be strictly adhered to.
