The charger continuously monitors battery condition and may report certain charging failures by fault codes. The "Fault Codes" are listed in the owners manual. If the first attempt at desulphation is unsuccessful, the battery charger will make up to four more attempts. If still unsuccessful at desulphating the battery, fault code “F01” will be displayed, indicating the battery will not accept a charge and should be replaced.

This battery charger/maintainer will attempt to desulphate a battery within a 24 hour period. The condition of the battery's condition to start with will determine how long it takes to desulphate it; so for many batteries, it will take less than 24 hours. The pulse amperage is 2-3 amps and the pulse rate is once every 30 seconds.

Yes, the NPower Automatic Battery Charger/Maintainer can be used to charge batteries in parallel, but not in series. This can be plugged into a generator as well.
