The battery terminals must be short circuiting somewhere, you need to check the terminals first, it should work fine, remember your charger too is getting damaged for this for taking up more load.

    I placed another reply last week from my cell phone, but later realized it never actually appeared as an online thread here so that you could actually see it, whatever, you should check the wiring cables separately, you know how... take separate wires to connect and check, take a different load of 12V connected to a wire and remove the battery charger terminals and start the engine and check if the load is working properly and also check with a multitester about perfect reading, let me know what happens, or you can write me directly at zack0874@gmail.com, take care.

Despite of new battery my Asus PRO50 won't charge a 100%


Is it a replacement battery? Are the specs the EXACT match, DC volts and Amps? Some inexpensive batteries do not work well with your laptop, it's a Connector/ pin thing, they don't communicate with the laptop. Try pulling the plug and drain the battery and recharge. Cycle it a 4 times, drain/ recharge. Does your BIOS setup have a Battery Learning section?

What steps to take to charge the battery 2005 yamaha v-star 650


Hi, Anonymous the best way to charge a battery is slowly. I like to use this analogy, would you rather be awakened from a deep sleep with gentle nudging or a violent kick in the rear.
1. Remove battery and check for corroded or damaged terminals clean any dirt, corrosion or electrolyte that is on top of the battery as this will cause premature battery drain, inspect for cracks and swollen/expanded sides which are a sign of overheating and replacement should be seriously considered.
2. Acid plate type batteries should be checked with a hydrometer with recorded readings for each cell to be compared with after charging readings and for sulfation, the cell will appear milky, and incorrect acid level. Fill low levels with distilled water to upper level and remove acid from over filled cells with hydrometer until the level is at the upper mark and dispose of acid in the sink mixed with a quart/litre of water.
3. Connect a voltmeter set on the DC scale to the battery and record the reading for comparison after charging.
4. Attach a drain hose that is not pinched, kinked, or plugged to the nipple on acid plate type batteries and let the other end hang into a plastic or styrofoam cup.
5. Connect a 1-2 amp trickle charger that has automatic charge rate reduction if possible and let charge for 24 hours.
6. After charging recheck each cell with a hydrometer a 100% fully charged cell will have a specific gravity reading of 1.270-1.280 and 1.180-1.190 has only a 25% charge battery should be load tested and considered for replacement if necessary. Reconnect your voltmeter and
any readings in the 10-volt range means you have a dead cell and the battery needs to be replaced. Readings between any 2 cells of 50 points or more indicate the battery has failed and needs to be replaced.
7. No maintenance AGM or GEL batteries need to have a voltmeter reading of 12.8-13 volts for a full 100% charge and 12.2 volts is only a 25% charge and should be load tested and replaced if necessary.

My wifes 650 Yamaha vstar custom's battery is dead. if i charge it is there a starter relay switch that i will need to change out as well? and should i charge it at 6 amps or 12?


If the starter relay is working properly after you install the fully charged battery, and that means engaging when you hit the button, then there's no reason to replace it. Unless you just want to replace it with something better.

Find your fuse panel. Take a picture of it with your cell telephone. With the car off, with a volt meter, remove the fuses one at a time. Measure every slot to find out what is hot and what is not. Any Hot circuits should be examined closely to find out what is ON when the car is OFF.

Places to look ... light in the trunk??? is it on or off with the lid closed? Under the hood? Same. Do you have a radio that comes on with the key off??? GPS, you leave plugged in? Cell phone or other gadgetry you may have plugged in to the aux power supply? Any other lights? Parking lights for example? Security system? CB radio?

After you have checked these items, and if you find nothing, you may want to have your alternator examined. If you have a shorted diode in the alternator, the power may be draining back to ground through this shorted diode. You could perform this test yourself by unplugging or disconnecting the alternator during the periods when you are not driving the car. If this is the trouble, on day three, when you reconnect the alternator, two things you will note: 1) there will be a pretty big spark & 2) you will still have charge in the battery (evidenced by the spark)(there will be some spark no matter what ... but a big spark will mean a big drain). I have seen shorted diode problems fixed by inserting a toggle switch in the alternator power circuit. The alternator will still charge the battery when the switch is ON with the car running. When you stop the car, turn the switch off, power will not drain through the alternator to ground. Probably not the solution for your Mercedes. The real solution is to replace the alternator.

BTW - do you have a security system in your car? A thief proof radio? Check your owner's manual for precautions you should take before disconnecting your battery with regard to the anti theft features of your vehicle.

You say your battery is new and dead after three days. If fully charged on day one, and dead on day three, that means your battery has expended between 500 (economy battery) and 1000 (premimum battery) "amp hours" of power (500 amps / 72 hours = about 7 amps per hour going somewhere. (An 'amp hour' is one amp for one hour) Ohm's Law applies.

I hope you find your trouble and I hope I have given you a few leads. Thanks for allowing me to assist you with this problem this morning ... good luck.

Hi, Jaynell if your bike has been sitting idle for months or years and you did not do any pre-storage maintenance I feel your pain it will probably have a dead battery and not want to start or if it starts it will idle and run poorly, here are the following steps necessary to complete in order to get your bike back to an acceptable running condition.
1. If your battery was 2-3 years old when you last had the bike running you should replace it.
2. If you believe your battery might still be serviceable remove it from the bike and put it on a 1 or 2 amp trickle charger for 24 hours. If it is the old lead acid type with visible cells and acid levels fill each cell to the top line with distilled water and replace the caps, run the vent tube into a plastic or styrofoam cup, any cells that are cloudy/milky replace the battery.
3. After charging remove the leads and let the battery sit for a couple of hours then check the battery voltage with a volt meter, you should have 12.5 volts or better, any readings in the 11 volt range you need to do a proper load test on the battery and replace as necessary, any readings in the 10 volt range you have a dead cell and replace the battery.
4. Drain and flush fuel tank, google " how to clean a motorcycle gas tank" find a couple forums to view the different options available.
5. Remove your air cleaner and clean and re-oil per Mfg. specifications.
6. Remove the carburetor, disassemble and decontaminate with a carb dip or if you have EFI remove injectors and clean with carb spray and compressed air
7. Remove fuel valve and filter disassemble and clean as necessary, remove fuel lines and replace with new ones.
8. Replace spark plug with a new one and check for spark.

My bike just dies


yes your alternator needs to be replaced or rebuilt.Your battery is not getting all the juice to recharge so it drains the battery.
