Float Charging Flooded Lead Acid Batteries?
Is it hard on Flooded Lead Acid batteries if they do not receive a full float charge periodically?
I find when my batteries go through a bulk, absorb and then into float charge, the amps required to float charge slowly drops as the batteries reach full saturation. If I leave the power on them, in float charge, it can take 24 hours or more before the charge amps no longer are dropping. At this point the batteries are fully charged, but doing so regularly when off-grid would not be be possible in the sun and not economical when charging from the generator.
