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.

    • What specific things make him indecent or classless?    Did he grab women by the pu**y? Did he make fun of a disabled reporter? Did he call most Mexicans rapists? Did he make fun of John McCain because he was captured in Vietnam? Did he repeatedly claim that the POTUS was born in Kenya? Did he repeatedly claim that the POTUS was a Muslim? Did he say Megyn Kelly had "blood coming out of her wherever"? Did he say "Laziness is a trait in the blacks"?   I'd be interested to know what things Obama has done that are more indecent and classless than this.
    • Imagine an Obama who loved this country and had 8 years to show that.  The guy is smart, charismatic, and very likeable.  Instead we had 8 years of anti american ideology, lies, and race baiting. He chose that path, not me.
    • What reasons did you vote for Trump? Did it ever occur to you that those reasons may have been just things to get you to vote for him?
    • I know. I guess I forgot to put the  after my post.     Court decisions is what I was referring to because I also do not know of any laws officially separating church and state. There may be laws at the state or local level I don't know. The 1st amendment is not always interpreted by courts the same way. 
    • He has chosen to skip over decency and you earn respect, he is the one who had 8 years to show respect and class and failed.  He could have been the greatest president ever and unite this country but chose otherwise.  Even in his last days he is despicable.  That said i wont bow down to Trump and he needs to earn the respect obama has not.  Time will tell.
    • Anyone who thinks this country isn't heading to single payer, government funded healthcare is fooling themselves. I'm not in favor of it but we may as well just do it and get it over with now.
    • But will you recognize it? Just like I am sure that President Obama has signed legislation and done other things that YOU think are "good things"  for America that Sledneck doesn't recognize.
    • I give up.  Because it gets people to vote for them?    
    • Why would they worry about the debt, we can just print money????
    • It is a special accommodation for a particular religion.     No law states that that I am aware of.  Perhaps you have more information.  Just some court decisions which while they may be binding are not laws.
