Have 2 group 27 house batteries at my house for the winter (boat stored elsewhere). I did have them charging
on my new Ioata 45a Intelligent charger
Took the Iota
to the boat last week, to charge the start battery
and decided to hook up a small 1 amp (Canadian tire) trickle charger
to my house batts, just to keep them topped up. I metered the charge after a night of charging
, and it read 15.34 volts.
The trickle charger is designed for small flooded batteries (motorcycle, lawn tractor, etc). It's brochure states that it is a manual charger, and care must be taken not to overcharge. It also states it is 1 amp, with a finish charge rate of 0.3 amps.
more about electricity - not there yet!!
Should I be alarmed at the 15.34 volts?
Or, is it at shuch a low current
rate (either 1 amp or 0.3 amps) that it woudl not "cook" 2 house batts with roughly 200 amp hours combined capacity?
Thanks in advance, for any clarifications!!!
