Re: Building a New battery system, need ALOT of help

Flooded batteries will accept 25% of their capacity - 25 amps if it is a 100 AH battery, 50 amps for a 200 AH battery or bank - if in bulk charging mode. From 50% (the lowest you should go) to about 85% is the bulk stage of charging. As the battery reaches about 85% of capacity its internal resistance increases and it will accept less and less current as it gets closer to 100%.
