Hi every one.

I know that after discharge a li-ion battery,it is recommended to let it rest before charging it and,also,let it rest after charging it before use it.
Is it the same with lead acid battery?

Thanks in advance.

I believe in both cases it's best to let it come back to ambient temp as charging will heat them. Probably not as big a deal with lead acid as they are mostly used in places where they are constantly being charged when in use, vehicles, boats, lawnmowers, etc. When used as back-ups for alarm systems and such, it's a very low draw and charge so I doubt they really warm up much.
