Hello all, haven't been posting or riding my xb600 modded to 72v lately. Yestarday was going to ride it and determined my batteries had run down to nothing. I forgot to charge it recently so they were died. Big mistake for lead acid batteries. I charged them up when I was gone and forgot about them. Just remembered this morning. Checked it and the charger never turned off, so they charged for about 24 hours I think. Unless it turned off and back on over night as the batteries dissipated some power. I checked the kilowatt meter I have and it said it had delivered 3.1kw since I hooked it up yesterday. The batteries were warm to the touch but didn't smell and the two under the seat don't appear to be bulged. Haven't check the others. My question is how many watts of power should a normal 6 pack of batteries receive to be fully charged. I am using 6 stock xb600 20 amp batteries.
Any ideas as to what I can do to test the bike to make sure I don't have any bad batteries. The charger should have turned off so it may mean I have and unbalanced pack.
Also if the charger is a 2amp charger shouldn't it have delivered about 5.7kw over a 24 hour period if it was always on. ( 120v times 2 amps is 240 watts an hour times 24 hours) that would be 5.7kw of power? Unless I am misunderstanding the way the charger works.
