Your AGM battery may not be charging fully due to factors like sulfation, over-discharging, or a faulty charger.
- Sulfation: Over time, sulfate crystals can accumulate on the battery plates, hindering the charging process. Regular maintenance charging or desulfation procedures may help.
- Over-Discharging: AGM batteries perform best when not deeply discharged. Frequent deep discharges can lead to reduced capacity and incomplete charging. Avoid letting the battery reach low voltage levels.
- Faulty Charger: Ensure your charger is suitable for AGM batteries and is functioning correctly. Using an incompatible charger or a malfunctioning one may result in incomplete charging.
- Age and Wear: As AGM batteries age, their capacity can diminish. If the battery is old, it might not hold a full charge.
- Internal Issues: There could be internal problems within the battery affecting its ability to charge fully. Professional inspection may be needed in such cases.
To address this issue, consider regular maintenance, using a compatible charger, avoiding deep discharges, and monitoring the battery’s overall health. If problems persist, professional testing and potential replacement may be necessary.
