Is a higher Amp Charger quicker to charge a 12v battery?

    Hi,
    Could anyone tell me if using a car's 22amp charger would charge a 12v
    10Ah lead acid battery any quicker than the 7-8 hours it takes using
    the 12v 12A charger?

    I'm trying to charge the 12v 10Ah battery hopefully within 4 hours
    (I'm not too bothered about the life of the battery, as I'd be happy
    if it lasted 3 months with the quicker charge)

    Does anyone know of a way to do this?

    Thanks in advance

    Dave

    A safe way to do it is the issue. A higher current will indeed charge the
    battery in less time but an explosion is a possibility.
     
  3. Those numbers don't make sense. A 10 ampere-hour battery should charge
    in a bit under one hour at 12 amperes (perhaps slightly more due to
    loss). Did you mean 100 Ah? If not, something is seriously wrong with
    your setup.

    Thanks everyone for your replies.

    I think I may just have to be more patient :)

    Regards

    Yes. That will fully charge it in approximately 2.5 hours.

    Aren't you supposed to be a lawyer? - Go look up the definition for
    "Identity theft" in the relevent criminal statutes, genius.

    You know as well as I do that that's not the only relevant statute, Mr
    'Attorney'.

    Poor old Moppy-Girl isn't very good at making websites, is he? That's
    kind of ironic in a person who claims to be a "Unix Dork", considering
    how trivially easy a task it is.

    True, but look how long it took him to create them, & how long it's
    taking him to put any actual content on them.

  19. yes. you aren't even worth 15 minutes of my time. thanks for pointing that
    out.

    one other thing you might want to factor into your assessment of my
    capabilities, is that when i get home from screwing with computers all day
    the last thing i want to do is screw with more computers. i'd rather brew
    beer, fix bikes, hang out with friends, go outside, etc.

    you really are painting a picture of yourself as "nerd glued to a computer"
    with your assumptions.

    i'm sorry, your minute is up...
