How many hours have they been charging when you unpluged it?, the battery pack can get to 67 volts before the charger will turn off by it's self, how low were the batteries when you started charging?, did you run the ground cable back through the OBC ?

Whether they were fully charged or not - you do know that batteries (especially brand new ones) can take up to 16 hours to reach full charge...right? Did it stay charging at 5 amps for the normal/full 16 hours (or more) - is that what you are saying?

it does stay at 5 amps for quite awhile, being an 8-9 hour day and its always at 5 when I check on it. as far as voltage wise would that be correct or is that over kill....

. . . charging cycle can take up to 16 hours to complete with voltage reading during charge cycle of 60-65v all would be considered "normal" . . .

Per RIB33024 - even 67 volts isn't overkill while charging. But as long as the charger is shutting off by itself - and if its at 5 amps after eight hours (not 16) then its likely you are just seeing new batteries behaving normally - until they get fully broken in (can even take up to 3 mos. for full break in). Once they are broken in and settled, they typically aren't so charger-hungry.
