Keep NiMh batteries fully charged?

NiMh batteries lose charge quickly after a 15 minute charge. Keep the batteries in the charger so that trickle charge keeps the float voltage up to maintain fully charged state until you have to use the batteries.

can't find float charger, can I just use a regular battery charger?


You can but keep track of charging time and unplug after use. Constant charging will damage battery. Float chargers use trickle type charging and are designed to keep battery topped off without overcharging. Got it?

HOW DO YOU CHANGE THE BATTERYS


Depends on what battery. car battery I charge with i 10 means with a current 1 / 10 of the capacity in Ampere hours for 14 hours. So a 80 Ah battery with 8 A for 14 hours.
A camera battery in the charger I got with the camera. Or a good universal charger from GP. A NiMH AA or AAA battery, with a quick charger that at least needs 2 hours to charge. The quick chargers I have that can charge in less than 2 hours (one can manage in 15 minutes) all kill batteries after a few charge cycles. Hope this helps.

How do I get to the battery? can I charge it with jumper cables from a car?


Both previous posts are correct. The battery is located under the rider seat. You need to charge it at a low amperage, 1.5 or 2 amps. It will take a while so be patient. Quick charging is bad on the battery. The best bet is to buy a trickle charger such as a Battery Tender and plug it in often. It will keep your battery at its peak. The more your battery drais or receives quick charges, the faster you will have to buy a new battery.
