I have a universal lead acid charger; can I use it to charge LiFePO4 batteries?

We do not recommend using a lead acid charger with LiFePO4 batteries as lead acid batteries charge at a lower voltage than LiFePO4 batteries require. As a result, SLA chargers will not charge your batteries to full capacity. Furthermore, chargers with a lower amperage rating are not compatible with lithium batteries. We thus recommend that customers purchase Dakota Lithium chargers for Dakota Lithium batteries, which can be found here.
