As a result of too high a charge voltage excessive current will flow into the battery, after reaching full charge, causing decomposition of water in the electrolyte and premature aging. At high rates of overcharge a battery will progressively heat up. As the battery gets hotter it will accept more current heating up even further. This is called thermal runaway and it can destroy a battery in as little as a few hours.
Power-Sonic only offers 6 and 12 volt chargers and as such we do not have a suitable charger available for charging a single battery.
Charging times can vary substantially depending upon so many variable factors including: – Depth of discharge – Charging temperature – Size and efficiency of the charging equipment – Age and condition of the battery For further information about charging please see pages 12-19 of our Technical Manual. To access our Technical Manual please go to the Literature – SLA Batteries section of our website
The electrolytes in an auto battery and a sealed lead acid battery have different specific gravities. Different chargers are required for each type. Using an auto charger could result in heat being generated inside a Power-Sonic battery; this in turn would shorten the battery life. Please contact our technical department if you need help in determining a suitable charger.

Power-Sonic offers a wide range of chargers suitable for batteries up to 100AH. These chargers can most likely be purchased from the same source that sold you the battery. Both our charger specification sheets and our battery specification sheets, as featured on our website, specify the correct charger required for the Power-Sonic battery. If your battery source does not offer chargers, our customer service department will be able to direct you to a suitable distributor. Contact us today.
