Hello,

I have a re-programmed Zivan NG1 for 96V flooded. The attached charging curve came from the manufacturer rep. Please help me understand what setting I should select on the charger. Note: on the chart, the I2 setting is selectable.

I have twelve 8V 165AH batteries. I typically discharge them in the range of 50% to 75% of full charge.

How ever fast you want them charged. You want an ENDING VOLTAGE, not current. I could charge at 1C but mine got warm fast. Look at cut off voltage, don't bubble them as hard as everybody thinks you should, except maybe once a month. 50% discharge won't make them last that long, maybe 2 years, but I have been wrong before on life guesses.
