Question

What is the default power up charging rate?

I would like to use this to maintain and recharge a backup battery in a remote location. What is the default charging rate after AC power has been disrupted and restored? After recharge, is it appropriate to leave the charging cable connected for long term maintenance, or is it necessary to switch to the maintainer cable?

The NPower Automatic Battery Charger/Maintainer will start up in automatic charging mode when first turned on. If power is disrupted you would need to manually restart the charger. For long term maintenance you would want to use the 2 Amp maintainer port and cables as this function automatically will top off the battery as needed.

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.
