XS Power Battery Proper Charging Info

Recommended Posts

What makes the "intellicharger" different than the rest? I couldn't find info on the XS power website.

I am interested in getting a XS power chargers since I run so many expensive XS power batteries and I plan on running more I feel like the appropriate charger would be an investment of sorts.

Right now I just have a *Battery Tender Jr.* on them but it is like......not enough, LMAO

Just wondering what makes Intellichargers Intelligent or what do they do etc.? You said they are more than just a floater charger.......

Maybe there is threads clearing this up on here but I figured THIS is the appropriate thread to at least ask.

Thanks

The charger will basically read the condition of the battery and then either work as a charger or a maintainer. It will charge when the batteries are low and then go into float mode when the batteries are charged in order to maintain their voltage.

Biggest difference between them and your Battery Tender Jr. is the ability for an Intellicharger to actually charge the batteries properly. the Tender Jr. only acts as a maintainer, because it isn't able to produce the amperage needed to charge a battery all the way up if it is discharged. The Intellicharger will both charge and maintain the batteries.

I ordered a D3100 and it was sitting on my front step for a day in the cold. Do they come charged? or will I need to get a charger on it.

They basically come charged BUT, it is recommended to top them off before install always. Sitting for a day on your step is nothing, it could have been sititng in storage for 6 months before even shipping to you, just saying.

But yea, everyone tops them off before install. It is recommended as well
