Epever MPPT Charge Controller . . . No Equalize for Gel?

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone. Made a quick video on Epever MPPT Charge Controller. While going through it I realized that Gel batteries do not have to be equalized. Is this true or should I worry that Epever does not have an equalize for Gel Batteries..? Hope someone can help. Thanks.

Equalisation charging boils off electrolyte and because you cannot top-up the electrolyte in gel and other sealed batteries, you generally want to avoid doing equalisation charges. You only do them if you absolutely have to (there is a gross imbalance), and it is much better to avoid the imbalance in the first place with a good battery balancer.

So I won't say you cannot equalise a gel battery, but it should be done sparingly if ever, preferably never if you can avoid it.
