you would if you wanted to charge them but I haven't charged mine yet and they're 3 years old (sit for up to 6 months at a time). Unless you have a parasitic draw, you shouldn't need a charger.....and if you do have a parasitic draw, it will likely kill an LiFePo batteryyou do have to get a special charger correct?
Good question! I've read a plausible answer, but . . . forgot the essence of the response. A warning sticker on a Shorai battery may hold a clue; says to avoid at all costs a battery charger with a high-voltage, "de-sulfation" setting. The "special" lithium chargers may be strictly voltage-limited.I ask. Why do I need a special charger for lithium batteries, if the motorcycle's alternator is the same and gives the same type of charge as a normal acid / lead battery charger?
Maybe!I understand that the label on the lithium bar., refers to a charge adjustment. It is not an ordinary setting. With the battery chargers it could be if it has two voltage settings 12 and 24 volt.
The charger set to 12 volt. does not exceed 13.5volt. What can be increased are the Amp / hour. At low amperages the alternator output can be replicated.
