Written Tutorial | How Do I Pick a Battery Charger?

Posted on November 16, 2010
Let me start with a disclaimer; BatteryStuff.com does not sell inexpensive off the shelf chargers such as the type often found at retail outlets and certain other online stores. We cater specifically to microprocessor controlled chargers, also known as Smart Chargers. All the chargers we stock are reviewed, tested, and selected based on function, reliability and durability. These chargers are designed to charge lead acid and other types of batteries based on computer generated algorithms. Simply put, the charger collects information from the battery and adjusts the charge current and voltage based on this information. This allows the battery to be charged quickly, correctly, and completely when using a smart charger. read more...

Battery Myth | Why is My 12 Volt Battery Reading as 13 Volts?

Posted on November 18, 2010
All Lead acid batteries (Gel, AGM, Flooded, Drycell, etc) are made up of a series of 2.2 volt cells that are bridged together in series to reach their final desired voltage. For instance, a 6 volt battery will have 3 cells(3 x2.2= 6.6 volts), a 12 volt battery will have 6 cells(6 x2.2=13.2 volts) and so on.That 2.2 volts is the fully charged, straight off the charger number. The actual resting voltage, or the voltage a battery will settle at 12-24 hours after being removed from the charger, is closer to 2.1 volts per cell, or about 6.4 volts for a 6v battery, and 12.7 volts for a 12v battery. These numbers assume 100% healthy cells, and may vary a bit lower for older batteries. read more...

AGM Battery Best Practices

Posted on August 25, 2011
Lead Acid AGM batteries, also called "dry cell" and sometimes mistaken for "gel cel", are maintenance-free. That means you don't have to open them up every few months and add more water to the cells (even though they are dry batteries, that doesn't make them thirsty like a wet cell battery). You can also position them on their side without worrying about any leaks. So, let's get down to what to do and what not to do for your AGM battery. read more...
