Note: Due to the self-discharge characteristics of this type of battery, it is


imperative that they be charged within 6 months of storage, otherwise permanent
loss of capacity might occur as a result of sulfation.

Discharge Current (A)

Float or Stand-By Service: Hold battery across constant voltage source of


13.5 to 13.8 volts continuously. When held at this voltage, the battery will seek its
own current level and maintain itself in a fully charged condition.

Years

66

Cycle Applications: Limit initial current to 9.9A. Charge until battery voltage
(under charge) reaches 14.4 to 14.7 volts at 68F (20C). Hold at 14.4 to 14.7
volts until current drops to under 330mA. Battery is fully charged under these
conditions, and charger should be disconnected or switched to float voltage.
