Jake : Hey there
Jake : charge rate should be 14.2v

I would have expected between 14.5 to 15.5 volts also the battery takes 12 hrs to charge up to 13.4volts?.


Could this be a Battery fault?

Jake : The battery will charge considerably faster
Jake : Just make sure when you check the charge rate that the electrical system is under load

Thank you I will try this and hope that I get the required result.
