Nothing easier than to charge a lithium battery :
- You connect to a current source continuous maximum current is limited to 0, 3 c (120A for a battery of 400Ah) and the maximum voltage limited at 13, 8V
- When the voltage reaches 13, 8V and that the current drops to 0, 025C (10A for a battery of 400Ah), you stop the load.
- Once the battery is discharged to 20% SOC, you do it again…
Any battery is potentially dangerous ! Even if the lithium batteries (LiFePo4) are the safest of the lithium batteries (and might even present less risk than the battery lead), they can easily be destroyed and/or be dangerous in certain extreme situations... Read More »
