Why I Can Not Charge My Car Battery Despite The Correct Charging Method

Submitted by • March 26, 2020 motorcities.com

If your automobile battery has been discharged for a long time, it is very likely that it has already undergone irreversible sulfation processes.
The longer the battery is left in its diluted state, the more difficult it will be to recover 100% of its capacity by charging it.
Therefore, it is important to charge the car battery as soon as possible. It is a widespread recommendation that the battery is charged with a charging current of 1/10 of its capacity. This is not the case with heavily discharged batteries.
Charging a heavily discharged battery as described above will make it unusable and you will need to replace it with a new one. When charging a highly discharged battery, the charging current must not exceed 1/20 of its capacity. For example, at 60Ah, the battery should be limited to 3A.
