Recharge time will vary according to temperature and charger characteristics. When using
Constant Voltage chargers, amperage will taper down as the battery becomes recharged. When
amperage drops below 1 amp, the battery will be close to a full state of charge.

Always wear safety glasses when working with batteries.
Always use a voltage regulated battery charger with limits set to the above ratings. Overcharging
can cause the safety valves to open and battery gases to escape, causing premature end of life.
These gases are flammable! You cannot replace water in sealed batteries that have been
overcharged. Any battery that becomes very hot while charging should be disconnected

Not fully charging a battery can result in poor performance and a reduction in capacity.
