I have this battery:
it has 6V, 1.3Ah... I don't have a charger... on the side says:
cycle use charge 7.25 - 7.45V
Trickle charge: 6.8 - 6.9V
and something about 0.4A
now... I have a lab source... or something like this from an old toy... I put on the volt meter and set it for 7.43V, it has an analog pot... than... I put a volt meter on the pins of the battery... I read something about to stop around 6.60...
I made a calculation 7.43V + 6V /2 is 6.715V... this should be the V that the battery and the lab source has been equaled so electrons navigates at the same rate from and to... but I have 6.84V right now... and still charging... the battery isn't hot at all... it's Pb based...
until when should I charge it?
