I am currently charging my 120 v pack (20 6v batteries) with a 10 amp
charger. The 6v batteries are 105 reserve minute batteries (I estimate
around 205 AH?) in series. My only other option is a 17 amp 240v
charger. Is my 120v 10amp charger not providing enough current to keep
the batteries healthy?
[I'm mostly charging the pack when it is only 15 to 30% discharged...]
