S'mise: 14.4 volts may work as a 'fast charge' rate (or as the starting charging voltage that later tapers off), but as a constant trickle charge 14.4 volts will reduce the service life of a sealed lead-acid battery. 13.65 - 13.67 volts is ideal for a constant trickle charge.

In battle, in forest, at the precipice in the mountains,
On the dark great sea, in the midst of javelins and arrows,
In sleep, in confusion, in the depths of shame,
The good deeds a man has done before defend him.
