Battery State of Charge (SOC)

How to measure battery State-of-Charge (SOC)

Essentially, battery state-of-charge (SOC) can be easily measured using an amp-hour meter, by voltage, or by specific gravity. Measuring SOC by voltage or specific gravity requires specialized knowledge and a great deal of care, so it is recommended that owners utilize amp-hour meters for all battery systems. An amp-hour meter is somewhat like a fuel gauge for batteries, providing all …

Battery Maintenance

Maintenance and how to care for your deep cycle batteries

Batteries vary by chemistry and configuration, which means that the required maintenance also changes. Some of these maintenance tasks may be automated or performed remotely via charge controllers or battery management systems, including charge regulation, voltage checks, and related measurements. Others require on-site manual operations or oversight. These tasks include, but are not limited to, adding water or equalization. Sealed …
