I expect at 60 to 90 amps to be in bulk, than absorb and finally float in a single day.

[4.6 months ago]
Yeah your'e right James, one needs to have charging at least on the high end, rather low end of the formula 0.2C, where C is your capacity, for me that is 0.2x500=100amps. So I need not 25 to 60 amps charging, low end, I need 60 to 90 amps, high end. T...

Today it's 7 am and the voltage is already 29 volts, as massive improvement on the 23 volts two days ago. So capacity is building up.

I suspect increasing charge voltage causes increase in state of charge (SOC) but it's taking more than one day, so this means my charging is too low, need at least 50 to 90 amps per hour. But my capacity has increased I suspect from 150 amp/hr to 500/...
