Link 10

I have recently installed 5 oasis batteries (so far so good) . The big selling feature was the ability to cycle the batteries to 100% after the usual AGM cycling down.
My question is,after 8 weeks of use I am on the charger and the link 10 shows that the amp hour ( probably the wrong term) is showing +35 amps .Does any one know if that represents the AGM walk down .I did set the link 10 to the best of my ability (limited)
Thanks

Re: Link 10

I can't see how the Link is showing +35ah. It is either full or showing -35ah. It could be showing +35amps which is the rate at which it is being charged, however if your batteries are full they wouldn't be accepting 35amps.


If the batteries are full, you can make sure the Link recognizes that by pressing and holding the two outside buttons together for a few seconds. If this doesn't sort it out, you have probably set the battery capacity wrong in the setup menu.

Re: Link 10

The Link units can show + ahs. This means they're full or should be. Once charging is interrupted they should reset to zero by themselves.

You should also be aware of this information for setting your Link. If you don;t have the manual , download it. The Link 2000, IIRC, has a much better and more thorough manual, download that too.
