Question about 2008 Chevrolet Equinox
If I put a 12 volt battery charger on the battery, about how long will it take to charge the vehicle?
Hiya...if your battery need attention to charge it up, I suggest a very good, modern battery charger from well-known stores such as Sears, Canadian Tire or what's available in your town.
The newer battery chargers offer smart-charging technology to provide correct polarization and 12 volts/amperage for 'instant boost' power/quick charge/overnight/slow-charge functions that you select it and the beauty of it is the 'smart' charger slow down the charge voltage to a trickle to prevent 'cooking' of the battery cells (so the battery case don't expand and crack/leak acid)
Tip: if your battery received a 'instant boost' prior to driving off, try driving around for at least 15 minutes to allow the alternator to pump full charge to the battery so it should store enough 12v power in it for your next start-up.
