VRLA battery charging
« on: November 23, 2020, 11:37:57 AM »
Hi all

I have a Yamaha Xmax as well as my Tiger. Apparently it has a Valve Regulated Lead Acid battery. On reading up on this is could either be an AGM or Gell type but it's still lead acid.

Am I right in assuming my Optimate 4 chargers are suitable for these batteries?

You guys will know!!

Thanks

Excerpt from details of Optimate 4 from Optimate website:

Suitable for all types of rechargeable 12V lead-acid batteries: filler cap types; absorbed glass mat (AGM or "MF"); valve regulated (VRLA); GEL-electrolyte

As said, simple check on obvious location - i.e Optimate website.

I didn't get that far down. My mistake. I'm now off to eat humble pie and be suitably bollocked.
