  • Charger for 230ah 12v

    Would this 15amp charger ( )
    work ok to keep the batteries charged and floated. The (2) 6v Deka 230ah batteries are going to be used only during power outages for a UPS. I understand I will be mostly concerned about float as I won't be daily cycling and don't care how fast I can charge them back up. Is 15 amps enough juice for 230ah to penetrate the plates? or should I just get a 25-30amp charger? Thanks again!

    If you don't take the batteries too deep, it will eventually recover them and return to Float.
