BATTERY ELECTRICAL CHARACTERISTICS WATER CONSUMPTION & VENTILATION. Water consumption. Water loss is associated with the current used for overcharging.
Current producing gas in mA
per Ah rated capacity
Number of cells
Capacity C5 for NiCd cells
Igas = Ifloat x fg x fs [mA / Ah]
Igas = Iboost x fg x fs [mA / Ah]
The consequence of any increase in the temperature up to a max. 40°C has been accommodated in the values in the table.
