Note: Due to the self-discharge characteristics of this type of battery, it is
imperative that they be charged within 6 months of storage, otherwise permanent
loss of capacity might occur as a result of sulfation.

Discharge Current (A)

“Float” or “Stand-By” Service: Hold battery across constant voltage source of
6.75 to 6.90 volts continuously. When held at this voltage, the battery will seek its
own current level and maintain itself in a fully charged condition.

Cycle Applications: Limit initial current to 2.7A. Charge until battery voltage
(under charge) reaches 7.20 to 7.35 volts at 68°F (20°C). Hold at 7.20 to 7.35
volts until current drops to under 90mA. Battery is fully charged under these
conditions, and charger should be disconnected or switched to “float” voltage.
