AGM Battery Charging Instructions

AGM Battery Charging Instructions:
To maximize the life of your AGM battery, it is imporatnt that it is properly charged. Over and under-charging a battery will result in shortnened service life. The best protection from improper charging is the use of a quality charger and routinely checking that the charger current and voltage settings are maintained.

AGM Battery Charger Inspection:
The charger cabling should be insulated and free of breaks or cuts. The cable connectors should be clean and properly match with the battery terminals to ensure a snug connection. The charger's AC cord should be free of breaks or cuts and the wall plug should be clean.

AGM Battery Charging Guidelines:
Fully charge batteries after each use. Charge in a ventilated area as gasses may be released through the pressure relief valve if the batteries are excessively over-charged. Never charge a fozen battery. Ideal charging temperatures: 32F - 104F (0C - 40C).

Battery Sulfation:
Even though lead sulfate is created in the materials of plates during normal discharging, this term is used to describe the generation of a different form (large crystals) of lead sulfate which will not readily convert back to normal material when the battery is charged. Sulfation occurs when a battery is stored too long in a discharged condition, if it is never fully charged, or if electrolyte has become abnormally low due to excessive water loss from overcharging and/or evaporation.

Proper charging of AGM batteries is required in order to prevent sulfation and premature battery failure.
