the intelli charger goes into float mode once the cells are charged. you could leave the charger on forever. people float charge batteries all winter in boats, tractors, etc.


If I answered you in a well mannered, informative way, you asked a good question or had a good attitude. If I was an asshole, you asked a stupid question or you had a fucktard attitude... or I was in a bad mood.

The bitch is.. you want some one, to "restart" it.... it seems after it hits GREEN,...... you need to shut it off, and restart it to go amber.... does that make sense?

EDIT- maybe Nathan will chime it.

But, i know after mine hits float, it goes green.. and wont keep charging. Seems there is a "time period" it has built in.. dunno

No, the charger is still charging. most chargers do 2amps at ~13v in float charge. you wont have to restart the charger and it'll keep the batteries fresh while you are gone.

Thanks man..

Cuz, i only see a increase, when its amber.

Green, i see not increase.

I was under the impression, that it was also a time in there, where it just laid flat.

I would go, and "reset" the unit every 2 days... but.. maybe i didnt need to ..

Thanks Skit ... :)

If it's an intellicharger, the float mode it goes into is designed for long-term use. I've left mine on for 6 weeks while I've been out of town
