Charger question

7 posts in this topic

I took my trolling motor deep cycle out of my boat to put in my fishhouse. My boat has a 5 amp minnkota charger that always fully charges it. When I hooked it up to the 15amp minnkota charger in my wheelhouse, it won't fully charge. Its polarity is hooked up ok. Both chargers are multistage. Any thoughts?

Did you try the 15 amp charger on another battery to make sure it is working OK?

Is it a new battery? My understanding was they need to go through a number of partial discharges before they will accept a full charge.

Its a 3 year old battery. It has a pair that seemed to charge fine. When I get a chance I was going to see if that one battery needs its fluid topped off, and try switching banks and see if that makes a difference.

I always thought that higher power chargers are faster but puts less juice in the batteries...

How are you determining that the battery is or is not fully charged? By the charger? Using a volt meter? Specific gravity of the battery. If you are going by the amp meter on a battery charger it may be in error.

I was going to switch banks and see if that bank does the same thing on my other battery, if so , charger is going back. Will check voltage on digital voltometer.

    • Sounds like the Preds and Pens were also hot after him so we won the bidding war, that would explain the price. We might end up facing the Preds in the first round so better we have him than them. Don't know much about Hanzel but from what I am reading he is big, good face off & pk guy and contributes a little offence. Maybe not a huge upgrade over Haula but having him on the 4th could be huge for us if him and Stewart can get something going. White looks kind of like a depth 4th liner so there is that as well. Should be a fun rest of the season, always fun to get new toys around March even if they haven't worked out in the past.

    • Maybe some people feel a  lbgt,, black lives matter, sierra club, feminist, white guilt, supported candidate better represents them than say an NRA endorced candidate.
    •    I think they do as good of a job as to be expected. Pills are highly regulated. International web deliveries and dirty doctors are a little tricky to weed out.      Nope, we'll use your logic and decriminalize driving under the influence.   Problem solved.   Should eradicate fatalities of those types as since it is legal, it no longer appeals to folks, they stop doing it.     Explain in detail, in a country, filled with people who love over consumption, that consume 80% of the drugs on the entire planet, how that would work.   Start stuttering.     That's about right. One word in depth answers.   On an idea that will not work in this country.   "I think we can learn that we should stop being reflexively opposed when someone else does [decriminalize] and should take seriously the possibility that anti-user enforcement isn't having much influence on our drug consumption," says Mark Kleiman, author of the forthcoming When Brute Force Fails: How to Have Less Crime and Less Punishment and director of the drug policy analysis program at UCLA. Kleiman does not consider Portugal a realistic model for the U.S., however, because of differences in size and culture between the two countries.   http://content.time.com/time/health/article/0,8599,1893946,00.html        It's your idea, you explain it and sell it.   You lazy fraud.
    • Wowza, I guess we are going for, no better year I suppose. We are now crazy deep at center and that is a good good thing, hopefully the new guys can mesh with the lineup right away.
    • So much fun to watch the media just lose all credibility, I suspect there will be more fun to come.

    • I think he means keep the prisons full and the private prison industry in money at all costs. Welcome to the wonderful world of donor $$$ "trumping" common sense. Nothing like buying laws so you can profit, not that this is anything new.
