Max charging for SLA battery?

  1. Jul 9, 2005 #1
    What is the max current for a rapid sealed lead acid battery charger?

    Most recommend 0.1C up to 1C where C = Ah rating. I have a max 30-32A regulated 13.8VDC power supply and the battery is 12V, 170Ah. Would charging the battery at the max 32A damage the battery?
