When the battery reaches this voltage level, the charging current slowly drops. With the drop of the current to the 80 % mark, the charger switches over to the higher charging voltage 14.3 V/14.7 V or 28.6 V/29.4 V. U0 phase Here the time registration starts which limits the main charging phase (U0 phase) to a maximum of 4/8 hours. With the switching over of the charging voltage, the current rises again to its maximum value. Now it remains constant as long as the battery voltage is below 14.3 V/14.7 V or 28.6 V or 29.4 V. After reaching the maximum voltage, the current drops again. Thereby the voltage remains constant (U0). Within this main charging phase, which is limited to 4/8 hours, the battery is fully charged. U phase If the current decreases to 10% of the rated current or if the time limit of 4/8 hours is exceeded, then the charger switches over to economy charging (13.8 V or 27.6 V) (U phase).
