How to charge sla battery?

The SLA (Sealed Lead Acid Battery) and SMF (Sealed Maintenance Free Battery) are almost the same batteries. The main difference between SLA Battery & Lead Acid Battery is that the internal construction is different: SLA Battery is made from Spunch Materials, while Lead Acid Battery is made in liquid form. The common similarity between both batteries is that they are rechargeable batteries. Both batteries will charge and discharge at the same time.

The main purpose of using an SLA battery in any moving vehicle, like a bike, car, truck, bus, etc., is that it has enough power to supply the energy and requires only less power to start the vehicle for a short duration when an engine is turned off. SLA batteries are safer than lead-acid batteries, especially for moving vehicles or mobility applications or vehicles moving from one place to another, because there is no need to worry about leakage and because they are sealed with pressure in these types of batteries, making them a safe option.

Now your question is how do you charge the SLA battery? Here, I would like to share two methods which you can follow to charge your SLA Battery.

Method 1: Using an Alternator

Suppose an SLA battery is used in vehicles such as a Car or Bike. By using SLA Battery, vehicles will be easily able to self-start with it also, do not forget that the SLA battery can also charge simultaneously with the help of an alternator.

Step 2: Using a Solar Panel & Charge Controller

In many cases, some people are using an old battery after taking away the battery from their old bike, car, and truck and then reusing it, because of this, the battery can able to run and cater to all the DC loads such as fan, light, mobile charging, etc. Even if you are curious enough to experiment with SLA Batteries from your car, bike, or truck to run the fan and light or use it for mobile charging, you will be able to do so. But the question is how you will be able to charge this battery – that is the main question. We will see how we can charge this battery; all you need is a solar panel, a charge controller, and a 1–2-meter 4 sq. mm. DC wire.

Solar Panel Capacity = Battery Capacity * 2

For example, if you have a 7Ah SLA battery, then the solar panel should be

Solar panel capacity = 7Ah * 2

                                     = 14 Watts

You need to purchase a 10W to 20 W solar panel to charge 7Ah SLA Battery.

The Charge Controller rating should now be

Charge Controller = Charge Controller Rating > Solar Panel Output

                                = 10Amp > 1.04A

This means you will need to purchase a 10Amp, 12V-24V solar charging controller.  

Now that you have learned to charge an SLA Battery. Hope you have a fun taking your old batteries off cars, bikes, or trucks and then recycling them for running fans and lights or use them for mobile charging.

I’m Angel Castor from the US. White Caucasian Female. I’m 43 years old and I got married at the age of 25, I have only two children and I am living happily.

After five years of marriage my husband’s behavior became so strange that I didn’t really understand what was going on. He packed out of the house to another woman’s house and I love him so much that I
never dream of losing him, I tried my best to make sure that my husband got back to me but all to no avail, I cried and cried seeking help. I discussed it with my best friend Alison and she told me she can help me. She told me of a man called Dr. Odunga, she told me he is a very great man and a real man that can be trusted and there is nothing concerning love and Pregnancy issues he cannot solve and she told me how he has helped her and countless number of people in

restoring their relationship. I quickly contacted his email address at I explained all my problems to him, he told me that I should not worry that all my problems will be fine. Presently, I am very happy I got my husband back to me with the help of Dr. Odunga and we are living happily with so much love for each other.

I just want to say Thank You to everyone who supported me through the years. My name is Manuel Franco, New Berlin, Wisconsin. My story of how I won the Powerball lottery of $768.4M is a bit of a tale. I have been playing Powerball tickets for 6 years now since I turned 18. I bought my first ticket on my 18 birthday. I was feeling very lucky that day because I had contacted Dr. Odunga Michael to help me with the winning Powerball numbers. I really had that great great feeling that I looked at the camera wanting to wink at it. I only did a tiny part of it and trusted him. He gave me the numbers after I played a couple other tickets along with it for $10. I checked my ticket after the winnings came online and saw the numbers were correct including the Power play. I screamed for about 10 minutes because it felt like a dream. I had won $768.4M. You can check my winning testimony with the lottery officials just with my name search. Thank you Dr Odunga. Well, his email is and you can also call or Whats-app him at +2348167159012 so you guys can contact him
