Equalization Charging

An equalization charge is a controlled over-charge of the battery set to allow the electrolyte to mix properly and to promote equal cell voltages and specific gravity readings.

  1. Perform all periodic maintenance checks(fluid level, clean batteries, good terminal connections, proper charging).
  2. Make sure that the car was charged the night before and that the charger has cycled off.
  3. Unplug the charger from the car.

  7. Unplug the charger and re-plug immediately after the previous charger cycle.
  8. Repeat for three consecutive charge cycles.
  9. Allow batteries to cool.
