Manual and Installation Guide BB10012
Charging Parameters Bulk/Absorption For your Bulk/Absorption stage, the ideal voltage is between 14.2v-14.6v. For full charge and balance, the absorption mode should be set to last for at least 20 minutes per battery (for multiple batteries in parallel). Float Our batteries do not need a float stage for charging, but a float voltage between 13.4V and 13.8V can be used when connected to shore power. Equalization Equalization is not recommended for our batteries.
BMS Basic Features All Battle Born Batteries come with a built-in battery management system (BMS) that protects the cells for long-term cycling. The BMS protects against the following conditions: High voltage: > 14.7V If an individual cell voltage exceeds a prescribed threshold during charging, the BMS will prevent a charge current from continuing. Discharge is always allowed under this condition.
Installation The batteries may be mounted in any orientation. But care must be taken in connecting to the battery terminals. The positive and negative terminals are labeled and color coded (red for +, black for -). DO NOT REVERSE POLARITY THE BATTERY AS THIS WILL DAMAGE BOTH THE BATTERY AND THE DEVICE BEING CONNECTED!!! The batteries come standard with a flag style terminal post with a 3/8” hole to accommodate a 5/16” bolt and lug sizes up to 2 AWT. Larger lugs may require a 1/4" bolt.
WHEN CONNECTING TO BATTERY TERMINALS, DO NOT FINGER TIGHTEN. ALL CONNECTIONS MUST BE TIGHTENED TO THE SPECIFICATIONS OF THE BOLT MANUFACTURER. FOR THE BOLTS INCLUDED WITH THE BATTERY, TIGHTEN USING A TORQUE WRENCH TO BETWEEN 9 AND 11 ft-lbs. FAILURE TO ADEQUATELY SECURING CONNECTIONS CAN RESULT IN FIRE.
Parallel Multiple BB10012 may be mounted in parallel to increase the current capacity of the system. When batteries are mounted in parallel, the voltage of the system does not change, but the current limits are additive. For example, two BB10012 batteries mounted in parallel can deliver 200A continuously and 400A for 30 seconds. Three BB10012 batteries mounted in parallel can deliver 300A continuously and 600A for 30 seconds.
Storage and maintenance Storage Storage could not be easier simply charge the batteries to at least 50% state-of-charge and disconnect from any charge or discharge. Maintenance Battle Born Batteries require very little maintenance if any at all. If your batteries are in series and not being charged by a multi-bank charger it is recommended that you fully charge the batteries individually once a year. This will balance out the entire battery bank to ensure the batteries will reach its expected life span.
