Ideal max current is 0.2C for lead. Where C is the battery capacity. Higher charge rates will shorten battery life. You're slightly over this rate, starting size would be 100AH. If you're not discharging too deeply, it will probably be OK as the battery will limit the charge current.

Hi @radkos

If you have access to the Multi's settings, you can lower the stock Charge Current Limit to whatever you desire..
