Can I use my existing lead-acid charger to charge lithium batteries?


Most likely, yes. In general, lithium batteries are charger-friendly. Most chargers today have a lithium charge profile, which is what we recommend using. In most instances, AGM or gel charge profiles will work with our batteries. We do not recommend the use of a flooded charge profile with our batteries. These chargers may reach the overvoltage protection limit and disconnect. It won’t damage the battery but will likely result in charger faults. Before using any charger with RELiON batteries it is best to first verify the charge profile is within our specifications, which can be found in our Charging Instructions. Be sure to read over our charging guide in detail prior to charging your RELiON battery.
