    Thanks for the input. I have purchased a small charger recommended for bikes & small batteries. I know the battery is under the bike anud hopefully this is not going to be too much of a hassel to get it out. I just used to put gas in it and go, but now it is solely my responcibility. Most likely will be back with more questions so please bear with me after all I'm just a girl:)

All you have to do is clamp the red clamp to the red wire battery post and the black to black. Then plug in the charger.

I hope you purchased a 1amp or a 2amp charger. Any larger is bad for the battery. Use the bigger charger for your car. Charging is easy enough to do, Just check the battery water in each cell and add water if needed to cover the top plates in each cell.

Next, Turn off the ignition switch. Put the negative - (black wire) clamp on the negative terminal and then put the positive + (red wire) clamp on the positive + battery terminal. Charge the battery overnight if it pretty well dead. Four hours or so if just low.

If you remove the battery then follow this sequence for removal >
With the ignition switch off, disconnect the negative cable (black) first. Then disconnect the positive (red) cable
Remove the battery
Re-connect the POSITIVE cable first, then the negative.

Please rate this answer. Thanks.

    You don't have to take the battery out to charge it. If the terminals are accessible just leave it in the bike. Don't knock being a girl. I am just a guy, 59 yrs old, but still just a guy.

Those type batteries dont like to be discharged for very long .. so if it was left in a discharged state (for instance over the winter) .. then it is likely damaged now and it may not charge properly or at all .. you may have to replace it .. if it hasnt been dead for long then it might perk back up .. sounds like you will do a good job ..

I use a small Battery Tender charger (750 ma) to charge the battery while still in the bike. Connect the red lead from the charger to the red lead on the battery (accessible from the right side of the bike, just below the frame and above the muffler, through a hole in the black battery case - you'll see a Phillips headed screw holding the battery cable). Then connect the black lead to the frame of the bike. Finally, plug in the charger. It can take a good while, depending on the size of your charger.

When I put the battery on the charger the light on the charger stays on for little awhile the it starts to blink, but when I try to use the battery it is not charged. So I am not sure if I need a new


Hi there! It sounds like you have our Linx stick vacuum or hand vacuum model. Plug only the charger into an outlet, the blue light on the charger should flash once. If the light on the charger flashes once then the charger is fine. Try resetting the battery by following these quick steps below.

1. Remove the battery from charger or cleaner
2. Unplug the charger
3. Insert the battery into the vacuum and turn the unit on for 30 seconds (even if it has no power)
4. Remove the battery
5. Plug the charger into an outlet, make sure the light on charger blinks blue once.
6. Insert battery into charger

The light should be a solid blue, indicating the battery reset worked. If so, allow the battery to charge for 3-4 hours, completely deplete battery on your next use and re-charge. If the light on the charger is still blinking, your battery will need to be replaced. I have included a link where you may go to purchase a replacement battery if needed. Hope this helps!

The battery won't start the generator. It has to be hand pulled to start. how do I recharge the battery?


Sometimes it is more expensive to fix the problem with the generator charging system than purchase a small 12v battery charger. I would purchase a 12v small battery charger (5A) that you can keep plugged into your house hold power. This will maintain the battery at full charge so it is ready to start when you need it.

I just purchased a new battery and new charger off ebay. The battery died and now I cannot get it to charge. I am not sure if it is the battery or the charger that has the issue but the camera will not...


If its a new battery charge it overnight. If its an overseas or aftermarket charger make sure
the battery terminals line up with the battery properly. I never recommend these aftermarket
chargers because the lifespan is very short. Whats the battery type and charger type??

Need to purchase a battery charger, what type do you recommend?


It really depends on what you are going to use it for. I use a small charger when I just want to maintain a battery. I use mine also for keeping the battery up while I am performing computer diagnostics on a vehicle without the engine running.
The charger I use is a DSR Pro Series Model PSC 12500A It is fully automatic and has a 125 Amp boost. It is very compact and easy to use. It has LED's that tell you the condition of your battery, the charging rate, etc.
I purchased mine from Matco Tools (Matco part number MIC1200) It is available through many local parts suppliers as well as online automotive parts and equipment suppliers.

How can i repair my makita battry i put it on charge and the green and red lights flash indicating there is a fault


HI, if you are trying to repair the battery itself, you need a specialty driver set to undo the screws of the battery case. Then check for any faulty wiring or connections. Next, observe the battery cells individually, The series may have some leakage from one or more cells. lastly, using a voltmeter, test the cells for voltage. The cells that are defective will have significantly lower voltage than the rest. You can purchase these cells at any electronic supply outlet. Make sure when soldering new cells back into place, that the correct polarity is observed. Another consideration inside the battery pack is the blocking diode. This is a small unit about the size of a drug capsule. This diode keeps the charging current moving in one direction,( from charger to battery and not battery to charger). with the charger unplugged, make sure there is no current flowing back through the diode when the battery is in place. good luck.

The charger slot on the phone does not work when plugged in, think it needs a new port


Hello,

Why don't you use the charger to charge a similar phone or use a similar charger aside yours to charge your phone to see if it is the charger or the charging port.

If your charger charges a similar phone as yours, it means the charging port of your phone is bad.

But if it does not, the charger is the problem.

If it is the charging port, all you need to do is to replace the charging port and your phone will charge.

Take care.

My battery will not charge. I purchased a new


The flashing on a charger usually means that the battery is defective or will not take a charge. I would take the battery back to the vendor and have them check it. A good indication is that if your old battery took even a small charge, it is not usually the charger that is the problem. It points to the new battery being faulty.
