I have a 400CCA lead acid battery here and I'm charging it on a 2amp charge. When do I want to cut it off? Right now it's reading around 13.5 volts ... does that mean it's fully charged or should I go up to 14 volts?

I'd let it go to 14. It'll have what's called a surface charge, so you're probably not getting a "true" reading at the 13.5V. You'll need to load it and let it recover to show the actual voltage.

Alright, sounds good. It was used to start a car a few times back in april and I haven't charged it since so it's quite down on charge.
