Often we hear about how much juice can be pulled from a battery, and how fast.

But is it possible to put too much juice into a battery, too quickly ?

I have seen many vehicles on the internet with 3 or 4 big, strong alternators putting out as much as 1400 amps ! (which is ef'ng amazing !) But almost always, these same systems will have a big, fat battery system of like 6 batteries, or more... Or nowadays, a big, booming lithium bank.

 

But do individual batteries, have a max charging potential, and could one be fried, or catostrophically blown up, if one tried to shove massive amps into it too quickly ?

 

Does this ever happen, and is this ever a concern ?

The alts regulator shuts it off or dials it back when demand is low. While it's still putting out voltage, amperage is minimal.

The alts only put out as much amps is needed right?  So theoretically you can’t put to much amps into them?  Just spit ballin here.
