A leisure battery is a rechargeable battery that is also called a Lithium battery. A rechargeable consumable battery has many benefits over the regular nickel batteries. The charging time of a leisure battery is very important when considering the quality and benefits of other batteries. The charging time of a leisure battery also depends upon that how many times it has been charged and how frequently you recharge it. A leisure battery that has been recharged to a better state and kept fully charged all of the time can work for months without compromising the quality time and working capacity. You can know about the recharging status of a lithium battery in these ways
- The first common thing that you can see when a leisure battery has been fully recharged is the automatic sign of an electric cell about the battery’s surface. This sign indicates the battery has recharged and there is no need of more current and you need to switch off the cell and remove battery from the plug. A fully loaded battery has a resting stage of 17 volts and everything above it is damaging for battery and anything below it is a sign of low battery.
- In some batteries, there is a sign of “voltage sensitive relay”. This is the most advanced way to know the battery’s recharging situation. It works on automatic principle of battery recharge by sensing it. Over recharging can cause heating and splitting of the plates of battery that cause the cells to buckle and shred their active material.
- Always recharge the battery after use because sometimes it does not show the sign of less battery, but in fact, the battery’s power has reduced. It can damage the battery and if a battery has been left undercharged for a longer time period after use, it can turn to the sulphate state that is harmful for battery’s life.
The overcharging of a battery also reacts to the oxygen and hydrogen present in it. This reaction to oxygen and hydrogen can cause damage to the battery permanently. If you will leave the battery on charge even after it is fully recharged, it will start losing its 0.2% of current daily and the shelf life of battery will start reducing. The self-discharge rate of the battery decreases when a battery left on an electric current even after it has been fully recharged.
