How fast will my battery charge?
Choose 3 amps. To determine your charging speed take the amp hour rating of your battery and divide it by the amp rating of your charger. For example, a 3 amp charger would fully charge a 7 amp hour battery (Ah) in 2.3 hours.
Can I charge my battery faster?
For most applications, a charging time of 3 - 10 hours provides the longest lifespan for your battery. But if you have an application where you need rapid charging Dakota Lithium batteries can be safely charged in up to 1 hour (at a rate of 1C).
What is the difference between a 3 amp and 10 amp Charger?
The amp rating is how much energy goes into your battery in 1 hr. For example, a 10 amp charger will charge a 54 amp hour battery in 5.4 hours. An appropriate-sized charger should be 1/3 or less the amp rating of your battery. For example, a 3 amp charger is perfect for a 10 amp-hour (Ah) battery.
What voltage should LiFePo4 batteries be charged at?
14.4 volts is recommended for Dakota Lithium (LiFePO4) batteries. This charger charges at 14.4 volts.
