A device capable of supplying electrical energy to a battery.
The current applied to charge a battery to restore its available capacity. This current is usually expressed in terms of the rated capacity of the battery C Rate.
The selected voltage at which charge or discharge is terminated.
A constant-voltage charge regime applied over extended periods to maintain a battery in the fully-charged state.
Discharge past the point where the full capacity of the cell has been obtained.
Charging at a rate of about 5-10% of a battery′s rated capacity.
A charge regime delivering moderately high rate charging current when the battery is at a low state of charge and tapering the charging current to lower rates as the battery is charged.
A charge at a low rate, balancing losses through a local action and/or periodic discharge, to maintain a cell or battery in a fully charged condition.
