Evening all - just received my Fullriver HGL120-12B. Took it out of the box to be greeted by a 120AH AGM battery but - absolutely no instructions/directions at all! I'm at the www.Fullriver.com website as I write but Adobe is currently downloading 'Chinese simplified scripts' to allow me to read the data sheet (I suspect!).
Anybody get English language 'instructions with their Fullriver? If so, could you email them to me please?
I know it's a 12v battery and I have to keep it charged but at the moment (with what Fullriver suply) that's about all!

Thanks in advance

What else is there to know, you connect it to whatever system you have a forget it, they are maintenance free, i have one as an auxillary battery connected to my Traxide smart charger.

Been in for almost 12mths now, not a problem.

I would think much the same.

Install it and forget about it. They are meant to be hassle free. Not much else to know!

These blokes are spot-on. I've had my Fullriver for about 18 months and can't say I was surprised that there were no instructions inside the box when I opened it. On the contrary, I'd have been flabbergasted if there HAD been any instructions. It'd be like those "funny" things you see from time to time....like:-

sign on a jar of peanut butter..."caution, product may contain traces of peanut" or

sign on christmas tree lights: "these lights are only for use indoors or outdoors"...

My suggestion......FWIW.....hook it up, use it as you normally would, invest in a decent voltage meter and try to ensure you don't totally discharge it (or any other battery) any more than is necessary. I try not to let my batteries ever go below 12 volts, even though that sort of treatment won't adversely affect it/them as long as they are recharged asap etc etc.

Exactly, my Traxide unit is designed to not let the battery go below 12volt, so as not to damage it.

They are a good battery and so far has been great for me.

For me it is mainly used to power my fridge, but i use it for lights and charging the camper battery via an inverter and also charging the laptop, camera, and so on.

All you need to know are the float and bulk charge voltages which are written on the battery (which my Fullriver 260AHr has). Apart from that if it has a bolt/nut type battery terminal then torque specifications would be the only other thing that would be handy so as not to stuff the terminals.

I don't think I have seen any instructions come with batteries let along a box.

There's pleny of english data on their website.
What else could you want to know?
Just make sure you have a good multi stage auto charger.
Jaycar electronics have some very reasonably priced ones.

Bit like buying a packet of corn flakes ?? Open it and use it !!

As said before, charge it with a good multistage charger ( traxide, absorbed power,c-tek etc, etc ) and MOST importantly don't flatten it and thats all there is to it !!!!
