    Default Stoor van battery

    Hi, ek het 102 a/h high cycle battery. Hoe hou ek die battery instand terwyl dit nie in gebruik is nie?

    Ek het 'n 15 volt charger wat ook tricle charge funksie het. Kan ek dit permanent op die battery los terwyl die battery nie in gebruik is nie?

    Voorstelle welkom om battery se leeftyd te verleng.

    Thanx

    HendrikG, ja, om hom op tricle charge te los is die beste maar net as dei charger 'n float charge het. Ek doen dieselfde met my battery. Hoeveel amp charges is daardie? Ek gaan gou rond soek vir informasie wat ek oor deep cycle batterye het dan sal ek dit ook sommer hier post.

    Default Battery storage

    I keep my 102 battery in a well ventillated area of our family room.
    Permanently connected to my C-TEC and to an inverter.
    During power failures I hook up the TV and an LED light.

    This setup has been running for 3 years and the 102 battery is always ready for camping trips.

    No problems and battery is good as new.

    Choosing the right type of Charger

    Choosing the right battery for the job is only half the story. Now you need to choose the right device to properly charge, maintain and recondition them, once they start showing signs of aging.

    Buying a low cost charger with limited charging capabilities will shorten the life of the batteries rather than prolong them. All the chargers we supply are professional level equipment guaranteed to extend battery life.

    * Avoid battery chargers that do not have an "end of charge control" too much output current can ruin a battery in just a few hours.
    * Never leave an unregulated or so called "automatic" charger connected to your battery overnight, unless it shuts off completely.
    * Avoid the use of "trickle rate" chargers that do not have an automatic float mode or current control circuitry that is guaranteed not to overcharge your battery.
    * Keep the battery in a well ventilated environment which does not rise much above 25 deg C. Each 5 deg C above 35 deg C reduces the life by roughly one year.
    * Avoid charging any battery in a time period of less than 24 hours, unless you really need to place the battery back in service in a short time.
    * If a battery is charged slower it lasts longer.
    * Pulse type chargers with end of charge controls minimize the heat build-up during charging, while decreasing the time needed to fully charge battery.
    * Minimizing plate sulphating build-up by keeping your battery at full charge at all times, can extend its life by as much as 300%.
    * Using de-sulphating equipped conditioner-chargers early in the life of your battery will guarantee maximum performance, as well as longer life.


    ================================================== =================

    Here are some simple steps to aide you in selecting the correct charger for your needs.

    Step 1

    Determine what type of battery or batteries you will be charging. Maintenance Free, Wet Cell (flooded), AGM (absorbed glass mat), Gel Cell or VRLA (valve regulated lead acid). In most cases one charger will work for all except for Gel Cell. However, some of our Gel Cell chargers will work well with the other battery types.

    Step 2

    What size is your battery? What that means is not physical size, but how many Amp hours does your battery store. As an example, a typical full size auto battery is about 50 amp hours, and it would take a 10 amp charger approximately 6 hours to recharge it if the battery were completely dead. Another example, a Marine Deep Cycle Battery may be rated at 100 amp hours, so it would take a 10 amp charger about 11 hours to recharge a dead battery to near 100% full charge, from a completely dead condition. As a rule of thumb take the amp hour rating of the battery and divide by the charger rating (amps) and then add about 10% for the extra time to totally top off the battery, This will give you total charge time.
    Some folks need to size the charge for quick recharge, therefore requiring more amps from their charger. Others are not in a hurry and may select a smaller charger. The most important thing here is to make sure you have enough charger power to do the job you require in the time you allocate.

    Step 3

    Know your desired outcome. Some folks require a charger to keep their motorcycle, classic car, or aircraft battery charged during the off season. In such a case a simple low current charger will work fine. Others require a fast and powerful charger to quickly restore a trolling motor battery or a wheel chair battery set.

    There are certainly other factors in selecting a battery charger, and it would be difficult to cover them all, but here a few. Input voltage, generally for use foreign countries. Exposure to elements, i.e. would you benefit from a waterproof charger? Perhaps you will need a charger that doubles as a power supply for a RV or some other application. Often people will need to charge multiple batteries simultaneously, so multiple bank chargers may be needed.

    Following is a list of definitions of different types of batteries and their uses.


    Flooded: This is the traditional engine start and traction style battery. The liquid electrolyte is free to move in the cell compartment. The user has access to the individual cells and can add distilled water as the battery dries out. Popular uses are engine starting and deep cycle designs.
    Typical absorption voltage range 14.2 to 14.5 volts, typical float voltage range 13.2 to 13.5 volts.

    Sealed: This term can refer to a number of different constructions, including only a slight modification to the flooded style. In that case, even though the user does not have access to the cell compartments, the internal structure is still basically the same as a flooded battery. The only difference is that the manufacturer has ensured that a sufficient amount of acid is the battery to sustain the chemical reaction under normal use throughout the battery warranty period. Other types of lead acid batteries are also sealed, as explained below. Very popular uses are engine start and limited starting/deep cycle applications.
    Typical absorption voltage range 14.2 to 14.5 volts, typical float voltage range 13.2 to 13.5 volts.


    VRLA: This stands for Valve Regulated Lead Acid battery. This is also a sealed battery. The valve regulating mechanism allows for a safe escape of hydrogen and oxygen gasses during charging.
    Typical absorption voltage range 14.2 to 14.5 volts, typical float voltage range 13.2 to 13.5 volts.


    AGM: The Absorbed Glass Matt construction allows the electrolyte to be suspended in close proximity with the plate s active material. In theory, this enhances both the discharge and recharge efficiency. Actually, the AGM batteries are a variant of Sealed VRLA batteries. Popular usage high performance engine starting, power sports, deep cycle, solar and storage battery.
    Typical absorption voltage range 14.4 to 15.0 volts, typical float voltage range 13.2 to 13.8 volts.


    GEL: The gel cell is similar to the AGM style because the electrolyte is suspended, but different because technically the AGM battery is still considered to be a wet cell. The electrolyte in a GEL cell has a silica additive that causes it to set up or stiffen. The recharge voltages on this type of cell are lower than the other styles of lead acid battery. This is probably the most sensitive cell in terms of adverse reactions to over-voltage charging. Gel Batteries are best used in VERY DEEP cycle application and may last a bit longer in hot weather applications. If the incorrect battery charger is used on a Gel Cell battery poor performance and premature failure is certain.
    Typical absorption voltage range 14.0 to 14.2 volts, typical float voltage range 13.5 to 13.8 volts.

    Note about Gel Batteries: It is very common for individuals to use the term GEL Cell when referring to sealed, maintenance free batteries, much like one would use Kleenex when referring to facial tissue or "Xerox machine" when referring to a copy machine. Be very careful when specifying a charger. More often than not, what someone thinks to be a Gel Cell is really a sealed, maintenance free, GRT, probably AGM style battery.

    CTEK - problem solved - and I do as Ginger does - that way the battery is used for more than one purpose (at the expense - it should!)

    Hendrik consider contacting Family-Dog on the forum.

    He also sells the Benton chargers (and a LOT of other stuff). I did the EFT and 2 business days later picked it up from my post office.

    Including the postage it cost slightly less than the best prices I could get locally.

    BUT, with the amount of help FD hands out here I decided to support him.

    by the way - the Benton WORKS !!
