# Leisure batteries testing/charging

Hi what’s the best/easiest/cheapest way to test 2 6v Trojan 105 leisure batteries.

If low how could I charge these batteries as all the chargers I can find are for batteries rated to 60ah Max. The Trojan batteries are around 250ah

• Ah is not the same as A, Ah is how much the charge the batteries can hold, A is the speed of the charger, a slower charger will just take longer to charge the batteries.. – Jasen Jul 27 '19 at 0:55

Take them to a retailer that sells batteries, preferably an RV or marine place that deals with deep-cycle types, but an auto parts retailer can test them too. They can tell you their condition - have they dried out, sulfated, etc. and whether they will accept a charge.

Trojan themselves have more info here, including how to inspect and test them: https://www.trojanbattery.com/tech-support/battery-maintenance/

There's nothing special about these batteries as far as charging. They can be charged with a normal lead-acid charger. It will take longer for the big batteries, but they will charge eventually if their condition is still serviceable.

There is a method to 'restore' sulfated batteries using a pulsed high-current charge. Whether it works or not is an open question.
