Trickle Charge


A trickle charge is a continuous constant-current charge at a low (about C/100) rate, which is used to maintain the battery in a fully charged condition. Trickle charging is used to recharge a battery for losses from self-discharge as well as to restore the energy discharged during intermittent use of the battery. This method is typically used for SLI and similar type batteries when the battery is removed from the vehicle or its regular source of charging. Trickle charging is also used widely for portable tools and equipment such as flashlights and battery-powered screwdrivers.
