Hello Joe Russell,

This is a GLOBAL site... so without any actual points of reference.. I can honestly say... roll around chargers are wonderful...
(but your battery should always be disconnected before using them... ).

I have them... but by far the most valuable chargers I have are the MAINTENANCE float chargers....

You can also use these to keep battery on your radio... and all your USER SETTINGS... while playing with the MAIN BATTERY.

After that the very BEST charging system is the one
EQUIPED in your car (usually ALTERNATOR).

Run your engine regularly... you will be much happier.

Charged my battery when I try to install cables on battery the starter fires, no key in ignition.


are you charging battery with the battery still connected to the vehicle. ??. you can only use trickle chargers to charge battery, and that depends on your vehicle specs, putting a charger on a no compatible system you will fry the engine management unit. if charging a battery you need to remove the leads as a battery charger can give out 20v and the system can only manage around 14 to15v any higher and damage will be done.

What cause the battry light to stay on when driving?


The battery is not charging. Check the drive belt is not slipping, otherwise it could be an alternator fault.

I own a 1990 Mercury Cougar Bostonian... what is the correct size battery recharger for this car? Schumacher is the best brand I think. Thank you in advance.


Most chargers have settings for different size and type of batteries and also have regulators to prevent overcharging. Don't buy the very cheapest, but the $60 (approx) units are good choices for most hobbiest uses.

I inherited the charger w/no manual - as I've


I can find no manual on line for the charger but the basic & most important things I can share with you.

On the charger should be your On & Off switch, possibly 6 volts / 12 volts switch, (you want 12 Volt) some have a meter to show how much amp draw is taking place as it is charging and you'll have to determine that from observation.

MOST important parts: It is best to disconnect the battery you are charging, at least the Negative post. This will speed up the charge process & prevent any mishaps with the electrical system on the vehicle. I prefer the battery completely removed & placed on an insulated material, plastic, wood, rubber, to prevent battery drain by sitting on concrete or the ground.

If you can check the battery first for swelling/cracked case=don't charge! Frozen inside=don't charge! Thaw first. The fumes from batteries charging are explosive & no sparks, or flames should be anywhere near. Upon reinstalling, Negative wire is always last to connect & be sure that everything inside as far as lights & ignition switch are off to prevent excessive sparking when you connect the final cable.

Charging & connecting. I prefer to test unknowns such as the connecting cables to make sure they are what they say they are. You need a multimeter for this but for now, I am expecting they are marked properly for this instruction. You need a Positive clamp , this one usually has Red handles, to connect to the Positive terminal of the battery (marked POS or +) The other cable, generally Black, connects to the Negative terminal (marked NEG or - ) and provides the ground to complete the circuit.

Make sure connections from the charger to the battery are all clean & well attached, then turn ON the charger. This will prevent sparks near the battery. Be sure to turn off the charger once charging is completed, then disconnect the cables from the battery. The unit you are charging with should give you some indication about when you're charged 100%, but these are the basics of charging a low battery. If by chance your charger shuts down on you & stops charging immediately, you either have the terminals reversed, or a shorted battery. good luck

Battery in Jeep Grand Cherokee dead this am and less than 1 year old. I have a Everstart 100 battery charger plugged in and on the car. How long does it take to charge the battery. The charger is plugged...


How many amps does this charger put out????
A small trickle charger will take forever to fully recharge a dead battery, you'll need to have a battery charger that can put out enough amps to properly charge a dead battery.To clarify, the chargers sold at Sears, the large square types on wheels are the best for charging dead batteries and they also have an amp meter telling you how much the battery is accepting. After you charge your battery, you should be around 12.5 volts to 12.7 volts. DO NOT OVER CHARGE!!!
