2. Bulk Charge - Constant max current (increasing voltage to a target)
3. Absorption Charge - Constant voltage (decreasing current to some target)
4. Maintenance Mode

I forgot to ask him about the effects of that 14.7V on appliances for those 15-20 minutes. But it sounds like this is not uncommon with automatic chargers.
Progressive dynamics has done it for years with the bulk mode @ 14 v.

You should be fine.
