Hey
I need your urgent help.
I bought a charger for Honda Insight 2011.
After three hours load is written 124v.
Is this normal?
How many volts do I need to get to the maximum?
Thanks

You need to stop charging immediately. Best to ask some questions before you go do something unique and risk damage.

Hey thanks for the response.
At the beginning of charging it was about 115 volts.
After three hours it reached 124 volts.
What do you think is the problem?
Thank you

via PM, you said, "I use a trunk network to load the Honda Insight 2011"

What does that mean?

What is the charge current?

Is the cooling fan running?

Hey
The fan works.
At first it was written 115v
And now after three hours it says 124v.

You are giving me voltages. I am asking for current.

Is this the RB batteries charger you mentioned a couple weeks ago?

If so, how did you get the fan to work with the RB batteries charger?

Are you completely certain the fan is running?

Hey
Yes it's RB
He gave me a contralar that was enough for the fan.
The voltage is around 0.5a

You should follow the manufacturer's recommendations. Unfortunately, it looks like their website is down at least for me.

0.5A seems high for an RB. The one I have is 0.3A.

Not necessarily. If you're 100% certain the fan is being driven, continue charging per the manufacturer's recommendations.

Hey
The manufacturer does not so know.
He told me he thought I should get to 170v.
It seemed a bit high.
I have a total of 84 cells of batteries.
What do you think?

I made it clear a couple weeks ago, I think you should have bought the right charger for your car.

Good luck.

Hey
I'd love to hear how many volts it gets to be dangerous to batteries?
If it stops at 124 volts OK?
I disconnected the charger yesterday after three hours, so I will probably not be balancing.
I want to plug in again and make a balance.
I would be happy to have any information.
Thanks

You bought a commercial charger from a professional seller. If the seller can't support his product by answering these questions I would return the product.

Also, fill out your profile so we know what country you are in and therefore your native language. Someone may be closer or can explain in that language.

Hey
I charged the batteries 6 hours after being filled up to a maximum of 124v.
And there is an improvement in the value of 40% while they work.
Thank you all for your help.

Hey
After charging batteries there is a phenomenon that is not clear to me.
On the day after charging, the batteries behave very well. After a night passes the vehicle behaves as if nothing had happened just as before loading. I've already loaded twice and checked it out. It's always the same behavior.
And another thing.
I've noticed that after a long drop, the batteries charge better and they last longer. Could it be that my version of the problem was not a battery update?
Thanks

Battery update? Where did that come from? Do you have another thread here that discusses you needing or getting the IMA software update?

Was there some issue with your battery pack that made you get a grid charger?

Oh I forgot, you don't answer questions.

Hey
I live in Israel. my language is Hebrew.
I understand a little English. So I have errors in writing English.
I did not understand what you wrote.
I read in the forum that updating ima software can help.
So I ask if this is the reason for the problem I wrote above?
Thanks

I looked at your other thread about your VSA warning light coming on. You posted multiple error codes. Everyone suggested you replace the 12 volt battery.
That battery runs all the electronics for the IMA system. This thread sounds like you bought a charger for the big battery pack in the back, the one that assists.
Perhaps you were just charging the 12 volt battery?
In any case, a healthy 12 volt battery will make a difference in how the IMA system works. No one who is new to the Insight believes us when we tell them that.
Because of the language difference, your posts are not clear. That makes discussing technical things really hard. You might ask a friend who speaks English to help you with your posts.
