March 12, 2018 8:51 AM by Tennant Company



How do you charge your battery?


Lead acid batteries have been around since 1859 – the same year Big Ben chimed for the first time in London! A lot has changed in 159 years. The lead acid batteries in use today are not the same as the lead acid battery invented in 1859, or even the same as the lead acid batteries of five years ago.

Changes in lead acid battery technology also means a change in how the batteries are charged. Many of the best practices from 5 years ago have changed. Check out our lead acid battery charging flyer to see how to charge your modern lead acid batteries.
