How are battery ratings used?
The rated capacity of any battery expresses the average amount of current it releases over a period of time under normal use. This means that the battery with a rating of 200 Ah can deliver 20 amps of power at a constant rate for 10 hours.
Does overcharging cause damage to my battery?
Overcharging occurs when the total capacity removed has been replaced by recharging and the battery remains on charge. As a result of too high a charge voltage excessive current will flow into the battery, after the battery has reached full charge. This will cause decomposition of the water in the electrolyte and premature aging. At high rates of overcharge a battery will progressively heat up. As it gets hotter it will accept more current, heating up even more. This is called thermal runaway and it can destroy a battery in as little as a few hours.
