Question about 2002 Moto Guzzi California Stone
I've been taught to disconnect the battery when charging with a mains type charger. But I'm increasingly seeing the likes of the Oxford maximiser etc which come with a plug and flying lead to screw to the battery to save disconnecting. Anyone know the rights and wrongs of battery charging? Having replaced the batteries on all three bikes this year I'm taking a sudden interest.The new chargers also monitor the battery. They are designed to trickle charge when needed not to recharge from flat. The old type chargers charged at a much higher ampage and could build up an explosive mixture unless the caps were off. With them the battery should be out of the bike never in a confined space. The new ones charge at a much lower ampage, you don't need to take the caps off, or take the battery out. I plug one in every time I garage the bike, it keeps the battery in top condition and extends it's life. The battery in my Jackal is the original, now 6 years old and still good.,,,
