You may be wondering if you can charge your LifePO4 batteries with an ordinary charger. When charging your battery, there are some things that you need to remember. First, don’t overcharge or undercharge it. Both will negatively affect the performance of the battery. Overcharging will release energy as heat, which is bad. Overcharging can cause pressure to build up inside the battery and could lead to it bursting. Trickle charging, which is equal to the rate at which the battery self-discharges, can be used to avoid this. This will ensure that the battery has enough charge.
