Question about Infiniti M35
Couple questions: Is the battery three or more years or older? If not a maintenance free battery, is it full of water (if you can easily remove the caps, it is NOT maintenance free). How dead it is? Have you taken any measurements? Voltage should be 12 volts and acid should read 1200 on a fully charged battery. The charger you are using, what is its capacity? Most vehicle batteries can produce 300 amps or more when charged. If you have a 10 amp charger it would take 30 hours at 10 amps to fully charge a 300 amp battery. The battery on my vehicle is rated at 1000 amps just for a point of reference.
At 20 minutes I wouldn't expect to see much change in the condition of a dead battery with a consumer grade charger. If the battery is out of the vehicle, I suggest you take it to your local auto parts store to have it tested. If it needs charged, they may be able to put some juice in it for you for a couple bucks. If it needs replacement, you have 1/2 the job done and you will not have to worry about the core charge since you have the old battery with you. While you are there, the guy or girl at the counter can probably tell you what the age of the battery is.
If you are keeping this car, I recommend you get a premium battery for your car. The best only costs a couple bucks more.
I hope this answers your battery question.
