Tip: charging batteries

 

When charging small batteries such as these, it is very important to use an appropriate size of battery charger. A normal charger used for a car battery will be too powerful for a small battery and could cause permanent damage.

 

In addition, when charging the gel battery EPEX005, make sure the battery charger you use is suitable for a gel type battery.
