Charging batteries

The topic of charging house batteries keeps coming up.

Every time one charges their house battery bank with shore power of generator power, the same set of rules apply.  

The charger needs to completely go through the bulk stage, the absorption stage, to the float stage.  Depending on the condition, how old the battery is, and to the abuse one puts on the battery, it could take up to 4 hours to charge up the batteries to Float charge.  

If you do not charge the battery to float charge, you are lessening the battery to the endurance  and keeping the charge.


Follow the instruction that come with your inverter/charger.
