Default Re: Agile battery separator

I suspect your bench charger is not up to the job for some reason.

You don't need to disconnect the separator unless you are testing the current drain with a meter. Leave it connected and let it do its job. It will disconnect itself when the battery voltage drops below 12.8. Plug in the van charger for a couple hours. Unplug the van and check voltage once a day and and see how fast it goes down.

Make sure you connect the separator before plugging in the charger.
After charging, before unplugging the van charger, check that starting battery has settled at the float voltage of 13.3 to13.4. Just to make sure the charging system is working as expected.

Thanks for the tips, I'll reconnect things and plug the van in to charge. I'm wondering about the bench charger as well. Thanks!
