If the charger is rated at 10 amps or more yes,it received a 'quick charge' enough to render it serviceable.the charger should be 'overcharge protected' so you could give the battery another 'zap' just prior to installation.

I have a recon explorer radio control quadcopter and want to know how long it needs to charge


It depends on the size and how old the batteries are and how many charge cycles they have on them. What type charger are you using ? New batteries should fully charge in about 4 hours on a standard charger and about 2 with a quick charger.

Assuming the battery is fully charged, the connections from the battery red to starter motor & relay are tight, and black terminal from battery to engine block (or chassis) are tight, and cables &/or terminals are not corroded, and the battery electrolyte levels are not low to expose the battery lead plates, the symptoms you describe sounds like a main fuse panel issue. Some cars have two fuse panels; one beneath the driver or passenger console, another one beneath the hood in engine area. If fuses are OK, then not enough electrons are passing through when you turn the key, meaning something is acting as a resistor to prevent free flow of electrons (loose connections or corroded terminals or cables). When you pop open the caps off the battery, each cell holds 2 volts. If the lead plates are exposed, that cell will hold less than 2 volt. Replenish with distilled water or battery electrolyte (sold at some auto parts store, so call around instead of driving all over town). If you have a battery charger & digital voltage meter, the battery should read 12.6 to 13 volts for fully charge. If below this, touch black probe on voltage meter to negative side of battery, then dip red probe on each of battery cell's electrolyte. Write down the voltage reading of each cell, then hook up the battery charger let charge for half an hour or so until battery shows 12.6 or higher reading after unplugging the charger. With charger unplugged, take digital voltage meter and take 2nd voltage reading of each cell, dipping red probe into electrolyte while black probe touches negative side of battery. Write down voltage reading of each cell. Wait half an hour to 45 minutes, then take a 3rd voltage reading of each cell. If there's a drop in voltage reading on one cell from the 2nd time, this cell is not holding a charge and its draining power from the adjacent cells, resulting in eventually leaving a dead battery after it had been parked over the weekend. Replace the battery. This method of diagnosis to check battery condition is more accurate than a load test. I've seen batteries that will pass a load test, yet battery goes dead after the car (or semi truck or bus) had been parked for 2 or 3 days because the faulty cell had drained power from the adjacent cells next to it. In semi trucks & buses, when the battery goes dead, it continues to drain the power from other batteries that are hooked in parallel or series to other batteries.

How to recharge battery on 2004 New Beetle


Remove the GROUND clamp and use a battery charger on low 2amp setting if battery dead. If partially charged, use 10amp setting. Allow 5 hours minimum to charge.

Static voltage when fully charged will be 12.65 vdc.

Battery is in front of car under a black plastic cover by the left inner fender.

The 12 volt battery(LUCAS 065/3) on my FORD FIESTA 1100cc is 4 years old, in that time i have only driven 1,600 miles as my journeys are usually very local. I make sure i use the car twice a week to keep...


Running so few miles has accelerated the aging of the battery - the battery never had a chance to fully recharge in such small trips -  so now you have to replace it a year sooner than usual.
Just replace it.

Not starting looking for reasons. dash lights come on and cd player stops for no reason. Last time car started it died right a way then did'nt start again. I changed the starter and the battery is nearly...


it realy sounds like you have knocked the battery flat try to recharge it for a fuw days on a home charger off the car if poss if not poss that should still charge up but it takes a little longer to fully recharge the battery up but it will take at least two or three dayes to fully recharge it the way to work it out how long it should take is this,,,a 40amp hour battery will take 10 hours to recharge at 4 amps thats its max charge too?
or devide the amp hour by 10,,,ie: 60amp takes at 4 amp =15 hours charging,,,but it can be charged at 6 amps then its only 10 hours,,, i know,,,boring huh?

Car won't turnover...only a clicking sound when turning ignition


Hi,
A small battery charger may take 24 hours to charge your battery. If you are sure the battery is fully charged then you may want to clean your battery connections.

Recharging flat elantra battery.


If it is not a hybrid,the battery sould be charged on a slow charger at 2amps for about 12 to 18 hours,this will give it a deep cycle charge that will last.
