Using this charger to charge them?http://www.newkellycontroller.com/product_info.php?cPath=31_50&products_id=486
That is the charger that i have already bought!!
Help would be great! Thanks!
Damn, I thought you said you were on a budget!! That charger is 200 bucks + shipping........That's not "on a budget".
What is the amp rating on the controller you are using? These cells are rated for 20ah at a 2C discharge. That means they can discharge 40a cont. They have a max charge rating of 3C. That means you can charge at a max of 60a. I'm not going to try to be an expert on chargers but based on the specs I would say that charger fits the requirements of the cells. Just remember there is no BMS between the charger and the cells. This can be a problem in certain situations. However, as I told you I and many others have been doing it with no problems. But you do need to manually monitor the charge. It would have been better if you had gotten more info on your setup before placing your order. Are you sure it's to late to cancel it? I'm not saying you should but it would give you more time to think things through. After all you could charge the SLA or even the lifepo4 batteries with a common 12v charger if you setup the wiring correctly. And a 12v charger is a lot cheaper too. Or you may even already have one for your car. Just a thought..
