i am sure you read this but i will post it. this is per the directions
•It is very important that proper charging techniques be used when charging XS Power batteries. XS Power batteries are designed for use with the XS Power battery chargers with a MAXIMUM output voltage of 2.4 volts per cell (14.4v for 12v batteries and 19.2v for 16v batteries). AT NO TIME during charging should the battery be subjected to more than 2.4 volts per cell. Voltages above this will cause the battery to “gas” and once the oxygen is vented it cannot be restored.
•Under-charging XS Power batteries is equally damaging to the life of the battery. Take special care to ensure
that the battery is properly charged before the initial use by verifying the open circuit voltage is above 2.1
volts per cell (12.6 for 12v batteries and 16.8 for 16v batteries). Improper charging can cause damage that
is permanent and will VOID THE WARRANTY. If you are unsure if your charger is AGM compatible, please
contact the XS Power Batteries Tech Support Department at 888-497-7693, or email us at [email protected]
for more details.
SOOOOO, make sure the chargeryou want is AGM compaitable and will not charge more than 2.4 vols per cell (14.4) and you should be good.
Now you can get the $200. HF1215(i think) it charges all thier 12 volt batteries. I bought one. I like it. Nice and compact. Yes, it is a little pricey but in case you would ever have to warrany the batteries you don't have to worry about saying that you don't get warranty coverage due to a "non compatible charger". Not say XS would do that, but if you have their charger you won't have to worry about it. just my opinion.
