SOURCE: Our Inverter works but the battery charger seems

There is no way to guess what the problem is, we technicians use a multimeter to look at the electrical circuit values to determine the problem. The charging circuit could be bad, or the batteries could be shorted.

SOURCE: inverter won't charge

The problem is the batteries. 1) Check the age of them to assure they are not near warranty limit. If so change them. 2) They must be topped off. I recommend using distilled water within every 30-60 days. Summary: After doing item 2 above charge them with an external charger; while connected to inverter is ok. Does this help?

If it shows NO external source, then this is most likely the best place to look to find out why not?

The Biggest problems with Inverters is Flat/Low/Bad batteries, Sometimes it pays to remove the batteries and charge then up remotely, and then replace them, fully charged, Now a fully charged 12 volt battery should have 13.8 V DC at the terminals with NO LOAD. If the battery only reads 12 V it is not properly charged.

Your experience matches my own. I think the only solution is to use a DC monitor such as the Victron unit which has an external relay. Hook up the relay contacts to the Temp in on the AGS, then set the Victron to trip the relay when the batteries are charged to whatever percent you decide, such as 80%. Use the DC volts to start the gen and percentage of charge to turn it off......

Inverting side working fine but charger is not


I had a similar problem at work yesterday.when your charger switches of it assumes that the battery is fully charged, while it is not.this is the solution , switch on you inverter machine and allow it to run, while it is running use a direct current "dc" multi meter a test the voltages of the batteries any one that drops like 3 volts below the normal voltage is bad. Change it and you will notice that the problem will stop. Note that when a battery is bad it takes little time to get it charged than when it is in a good condition .

It's quite possible that you are charging your batteries with a "smart charger." The problem with some smart chargers is that when a battery is drained below a certain voltage, the charger assumes the battery is a lost cause and stops trying to charge it. You may have to get a cheap "dumb" charger to bring the batteries up to a reasonable voltage before turning things back over to the smart charger.
