 **Lead batteries** have a **maximum amount of current** they will accept, typically [[electrical:​12v:​battery_capacity|C/​3]] for AGM and C/5 for flooded. So if you have 100Ah of AGM the most it will want to take is something like ~33A.  Once the battery'​s limit is hit throwing more charging capacity at it can't charge it any faster.((it may help run loads, though)) **Lead batteries** have a **maximum amount of current** they will accept, typically [[electrical:​12v:​battery_capacity|C/​3]] for AGM and C/5 for flooded.

-** Deep-cycled lead batteries have a lengthy [[electrical:​12v:​charging|Absorption]] stage** that cannot be sped up. Depending on use, Absorption typically requires several hours.There is a saying that "it takes 9 months to make a baby, but two women cannot make a baby in 4.5 months"​. ​ Same with absorption - it takes what it takes and you cannot hurry it in the normal sense.+** Deep-cycled lead batteries have a lengthy [[electrical:​12v:​charging|Absorption]] stage** that cannot be sped up((at least not more than a few percent, see below)).
