Is a 1.5 amp trickle charger to small for charging a deep cycle battery?
ThanksIt is actually a better idea to use a trickle/low amp setting to charge your batteries. It is an overnight process but much better than using a high amp speed charge. So yes, 1.5 amps is perfect for a slow deep cycle charge unless your really in a hurry...
I agree. Especially for AGM batteries. Check out the owners manual on the Odyssey website. They recommend very high amps for charging. In fact, they specifically say not to charge with less than 40 amps for the 2150. Also they say that a 2 amp charger will NOT fully charge their batteries.I'm not sold on trickle charge for deep cycle batteries, multistage are better in my experience. The charging time needed at 1.5 amps is extremely long. These are more of maintaining charger.
The charger says it is not rated for deep cycle batteries, that should be a clue.
