Battery ChargingFeb 5th, 2016 | By Editorial Staff | Category: Tow Tip
Older, heavy-duty, roll-around battery chargers are only suitable for use with flooded lead-acid batteries, never on valve-regulated, lead-acid batteries. If you do not have one of the newer “smart” chargers, consider purchasing one. Many of these chargers can sense the type of battery as well as its state of charge and can be left connected to a battery indefinitely without fear of over-charging.
