What size battery charger do I need?

We don’t mean physical size, but how many amp hours your battery stores. For example, a typical full-size auto battery is about 50 amp hours, so you would choose a 10 amp charger that would take about 6 hours to recharge it if the battery were completely dead.

How do you charge a deep cycle battery at home?

Charging Your Battery from Solar Panels Investing in solar panels will allow you to charge your deep cycle battery with free energy from the sun, even when away from mains power. After panels have been placed in the sun, they will need to be attached to a solar regulator, also known as a charge controller.

Can you charge a deep cycle battery with a regular charger?

Be sure that you use a voltage-limited battery charger, also known as a float charger, for this task. A traditional charger should not be used on gel batteries, as it may overcharge and damage the battery. A voltage-limited charger will charge at a set rate and turn off when a full charge is achieved.
