letting them touch]. until you get at least a 2 amp reading. You should be able to get between a 4 & 6 amp reading which does a better and faster

Also, some additional notes from experience:
1). Find an old piece of no. 6 awg hard drawn copper wire [like the power
companies use for vertical grounds on their poles] or go to an
electrical supply house and buy about 12 inches and a fargo
electrical bronze connector.
2). Use the fargo connector to attach one end of the no. 6 wire to the
3). Extend the wire to outside of the vat and attach the "positive" lead
from the battery charger.
This is done to get the charger lead connector "outside" the solution which
is very corrosive and will in short order eat up the end of your lead.
4). "Never" set up the vat in an enclosed building. The gas produced can
