I bought this vehicle 3 months ago with no batteries. It had previously been running Hella Endurant MDC27/105 flooded batteries (105AHr). I was advised to replace with the same. I have been running the vehicle successfully until now, but have just noticed the batteries not returning to full charge, (80%).
Spent a long time reading this forum and various other posts, and now not sure I have selected correct batteries.
I have checked the Zivan NG1 setting, this was set to C, Gel, which appears to be incorrect.
There is no sticker saying the micro has been updated.
I will be changing the setting to E or F , but am sure of which one?
Could someone advise me on which setting I should use.
Feedback on the long term life of the batteries would be appreciated and whether they have had any life reduced by being charged at the reduced Gel setting.
The settings available are:
C : Gel 1.35A
D : AGM 2.1A
E : TROJAN 2.6A
F: TROJAN 4.5A
The battery literature states;
[I]The Hella Endurant CycleMaster is a flooded technology battery specifically designed to withstand the demand of deep discharges and slow recharges. The internal construction includes glass mat and dual insulation deep pocket envelope separators; which protect all sides of the plate to prevent internal shorts. High density oxide increases cycling capacity, providing reliable power. [/I]
Does this mean they are AGM as they mention glass Mat in the constuction?
Any thoughts would be appreciated, and thanks for taking the time to read and response in advance
