Sealed Lead Acid Chargers

These lead acid battery chargers are designed to work with batteries that have been discharged to the manufacturers' recommended 1.75V per cell (5.25 for a 6V battery and 10.5V for a 12V battery). If the batteries have been discharged below that point or if the battery is near the end of its service life, it may draw more current than the charger it is designed for. In that case, the charger will fail safely by tripping a one-time discharge thermal fuse mounted on the primary windings.
