You need the 1215 for 12 volt batteries charges to 14.3ish then floats. The 1415 is for 14v batteries charges to 16+v

Well shit. ..I accidentally ordered the wrong one. I put my brand new D3400 on it for about 3 to 4 hours. .. Before realizing it was most likely the wrong one. Please don't tell me my batt is garbage now. Packing charger up to send back today. And I'm gonna test the D3400. .. wish me luck.

Why wouldn't you ask before you order and not after you already have it on your battery?

I don't understand how you could even order the wrong one, if the specs don't make sense to you then how did you set up your whole system?

Is the 3400 swollen?

Highly likely that there is some serious damage to your battery. The 14v chargers go into absorption mode at around 16.8v IIRC.

If the battery tests good under load(testing internal resistance), put it under an extended 25a load and post back how long it lasts before dropping below 10.5v. That is a measure of the battery's capacity. I'm willing to bet that even if the load test is good, it will fall flat on it's face on this test.

Edit: Now that I think about it, overcharging isn't warrantied by XS. You might be SOL

You could always pop off the sticker, top cover, then little rubber nipples covering each cell and add some distilled water. Around 30ml per to start off. It would help with the capacity problem, but I doubt it would bring it back to new

testing at 13.3 My wife bought it for me...should've double checked...the confusion came from 12 volt vs. 14 volt running...time will tell...3400 is NOT swollen...in the very worst scenario...its just one battery...

Resting voltage can/will be good even is the battery is bad. Especially if it's boiled off the electrolyte

Uhh.... Try this: Put it in your car, only the d3400. Does it start? Ok. With the ignition on but car not running, turn on the headlights and time how long they stay on before battery voltage dips to 10.5v.
