Blue Smart Charger stuck on Bulk Charge for hours

I'm charging my Battleborn LifePO4 using the Lithium-ion preset and it's been stuck on Bulk Charge @ 13.7V for hours now. Is this normal?

Hi @Manny Martinez,

if the battery has been drained before or never charged, this is normal. Depending on your charge settings bulk should stay on until at least 14.2V is reached.

@Manny Martinez,

to give you a more detailed answer, we need more information on your setup

  • What type of battery - total amp hours , one or more, in series or parallel?
  • What type of Blue Smart Charger?
  • Blue Smart Charger Settings?
  • Any other devices in that setup?

Looks like it finally started moving! Thanks
