24 Volt Battery Chargers
Battery Chargers - Different types of batteries
require different charging regimes. SLA,
AGM and Gel batteries
are traditionally charged at a lower voltage than Flooded
Lead acid batteries.
It is recommend to charge batteries at about 10% of their
amp hour capacity. For example, an 80Ah deep cycle battery
should be changed at a rate of about 8A.
SLA, AGM and Gel batteries are traditionally charged at
a lower voltage than Flooded Lead acid batteries. Multi-stage
chargers are recommended because they adjust
current and voltage according to the battery's requirements.
Multistage charging ensures batteries receive
optimum charging, but with minimal wear and tear, regulating
the voltage and current delivered to the batteries in
three automatic stages -
Bulk, Absorption, and Float:
1. Bulk - Replaces 70-80% of the battery’s state
of charge at the fastest possible rate.
2. Absorption - Replenishes the remaining 20-30% of charge,
bringing the battery to a full charge at a slow, safe
3. Float - Voltage is reduced and held constant in order
to prevent damage and keep batteries at a full charge.
