Charging a Numax

Hi Guys

How would I go about charging a NUMAX XV27 MF battery?

Will a normal charger work? What settings should I use to charge?

Thanks in advance

I use an itelligent automatic charger / equaliser for these types.

one of these is what I've got but anything similar will do.

Looks to me like a standard flooded lead-acid battery. Standard charger will work fine. Newer "smart" three-stage chargers *may* give you more leeway with regard to overcharging (meaning they won't), and *may* get the charge up a little quicker.
