I did more research for more information on my charging system for my batteries.
Are these reading before or after battery replacement? The 13.5 is fine. What are you using for charging?
The reading were taking after the battery was replaced. (DC charging current to be (.51 ma) and voltage reading was 13.51 VDC.)
I have a (IOTA DSL-30 Charger) for my WW.
As a battery charger, the unit will maintain the battery, delivering its full-rated current when the battery capacity falls sufficiently low. The voltage is set to deliver its maximum current for the necessary period of time to minimize undue stress to the battery caused by heating of its cells. This helps to ensure the longest possible life of the battery. Over time, as the battery nears its full capacity, the DLS-30 will automatically drop the current, providing a float-charge to the battery to prevent self-discharge of the cells.
I read there is a optional attachment that can be added to the DSL-30.
The IQ4 Charge Controller offers automatic charging control for DLS
Battery Chargers, providing longer and safer use of your system’s
battery. The IQ4 Controller allows the DLS Charger to operate as an
automatic 3-stage “smart charger” that gives the customer the benefit
of Bulk, Absorption, and Float stage charging. Three-Stage Charging
increases the charging capacity of the DLS charger and decreases
the charge time while insuring proper and safe battery charging and
minimizing the possibility of over-charging. The IQ4 monitors the battery
at all times. If the DLS voltage remains in the Float stage for more
than seven days, the IQ4 will automatically enter the Equalization stage
for a predetermined time to help maintain the battery plates, and then
resume float stage charging.
I also checked the DSL-30 charger shutoff when my 5.5K generator is running and restarts when the generator is not running.
Seems like everything is working fine. Just wondering if I should opt to get the IQ4 smart charger controller for the DSL-30.
