Learn how to optimize charging conditions to extend service life.

We now study various charging methods and examine why some systems work better than others. We focus on closed-loop techniques that communicate with the battery and terminate charge when certain responses occur. Lead acid charging uses a voltage-based algorithm that is similar to lithium-ion. The charge time of a sealed lead acid battery is 12–16 hours, up to 36–48 hours for large stationary batteries. With higher charge currents and multi-stage charge methods, the charge time can be reduced to 10 [...]

About the purchase of Xbatt batteries

Q: What is a AGM battery? A: The newer type of sealed non-spillable maintenance free valve regulated battery uses “Absorbed Glass Mats”, or AGM separators between the plates. This is a very fine fiber Boron-Silicate glass mat. These type of batteries have all the advantages of gelled, but can take much more abuse. These are also called “starved electrolyte. Just like the Gel batteries, the AGM Battery will not leak acid if broken. Q: What is a Gel battery? A:  A gel battery design is typically [...]
