Leds on Iota Battery Charger
I have installed a 55 amp Iota Battery Charger on my boat with the IQ4 controller. It has been on the trailer for the last year being painted and the batteries were deeply discharged. I plugged the battery charger in over the weekend for a couple of hours. When I unplugged the charger the led on the charger continued to blink. Is this normal? I am assuming that the charger is reading the voltage from the batteries and giving an indication of the charging regime that is applicable (bulk, float, etc.).
Do you think this process consumes much battery power. I have wired the charger directly to the batteries so there is not currently a way to disconnect it.
Your thoughts would be appreciated.
