PWM Absorption

The charging stage where current delivered to the battery is limited. When the battery reaches the regulation voltage, PWM (pulse width modulation) will hold the battery voltage constant. As the battery becomes more fully charged, the PWM duty cycle decreases as to allow less and less charging current to the battery. This is to avoid over-heating and over-gassing of the battery.
