Re: Battery terminals on battery
Without the proper charger you could damaged the phoneand or the battery, attempting to charge it with out the proper regulated charger is not advised. you can find an aftermarket charger for alot less money than it would cost you to replace the phone because of damage. incidently because most batteries are either nickel-cadium or lithium ion you could potentially explode a battery by not using a proper charger this would result in a painful injury.
a 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

1. I assume this is a car battery so the first thing you do is to disconnect the vehicle cables from the battery terminals. The negative first and then the positive. The positive terminal is marked with a plus sign ...+ ... When refitting the cables to the
battery after it is charged you fit the positive cable to the positive battery terminal(+) first and fit the negative(-) last.
2. Now that the battery is unconnected from the vehicle you can fit the charging cables to the battery terminals. The charger you have should have 2 cables leading from it , a positive with a red plastic insulation on the clip and a negative cable probably with black insulation on the clip.The instructions with the charger will tell you in which order the cables are to be attached to the battery and the order you remove them. Each of the 2 cables has to be clipped onto the correct battery terminal. The positive cable(+) from the charger goes to the positive battery terminal (+)and the negative cable(-) from the charger goes to the negative battery terminal(-).
3. Once the cables from the charger are properly connected to the battery, you can plug in the charger and turn on the power.
4. Batteries generate explosive gasses when being charged and it only takes one small spark to ignite them. Don't reconnect the battery after charging for a half hour or so and make sure the area where you are charging is well ventilated.
Battery chargers are wired into a boat's electrical system. Wiring the charger to a battery switch permits the charging of the individual batteries or battery banks. The switch can be configured to charge both batteries or battery banks at once. Mounting the charger in the vessel keeps the charger where it will do the most good--connected to the batteries. This is useful if you are stuck with low batteries and need a recharge. Power from a generator, shore power or even AC power from another vessel can be used to get you going again
Instructions Things You'll Need: Battery charger Battery switch Battery cable (sized) Cable cutters Razor knife Battery terminal lugs Lug crimper Terminal kit Terminal crimper Hammer Step 1 Mount the battery switch with the mounting kit provided by the manufacturer. The switch should be accessible but close to the battery or battery banks. Step 2 Mount the battery charger in a location that will be accessible but protected from the elements. Mount the charger close to the battery switch to reduce the size of the charger leads. Step 3 Connect the battery cables to the battery switch. Mount the battery cables onto their corresponding terminal studs on the battery switch. Step 4 Lay out the battery positive cable from the charger to the switch and cut it to length with the cable cutters. Strip 3/4 inch of insulation from the cable ends with a razor knife. Splice the cable to the hot wire from the charger with a **** connector and the terminal crimper. Crimp a terminal lug onto the battery end of the cable with the lug crimper and a hammer. Connect the terminal lug at the battery switch positive output terminal. Step 5 Lay out a battery cable from the charger to the battery negative terminal block. Cut the cable to length and strip 3/4 inch of insulation from the ends with a razor knife. Connect the battery negative cable to the charger negative power lead with a ****-splice and the terminal crimpers. Crimp a terminal lug onto the terminal block end of the cable with the lug crimper and a hammer. Connect the terminal lug at the battery negative terminal block post.
Tips & Warnings Set the switch to "1," "2" or "both" to charge battery bank 1, bank 2 or both batteries at once.
could be a circuit protection device
check correct battery voltage selected
check correct t battery post connection positive to positive -negative to negative
check that the clips are on the battery posts as there may be a build up between the posts and the terminals that is causing the charger to overload or sense an open circuit because of the high resistance
the reason for this may be the way you have attached the battery charger leads
charging batteries require the positive lead of the charger to be clipped to the positive terminal of the battery
likewise the negative lead of the charger goes to the negative terminal of the battery
I suspect that you are hooking positive to negative in which the charger will go into overload protection and shut down.
If you have a battery charger, remove the battery cover to expose the battery terminals then you can connect the battery charge to the battery. Make sure you connect the positive lead from the charger to the positive terminal on the battery and the negative lead from the charger to the negative terminal on the battery before you power up the battery charger. When you have finished charging the battery, power off the battery charger before you disconnect the leads from the battery.

Assuming you have a battery charger. Do not plug charger in until after it is connected.
1. Open hood & locate battery.
2. Identify the positive terminal of the battery (usyally has a red cover or red marking.
The battery has side terminals (not posts like nonGM batteries)
4. Connect the + red clamp the the positive terminal wiggle it a little to get good connection.
5. Connect the negative black clamp to the engine block, a handy bracket on engine or the negative terminal on the battery. DO NOT CONNECT TO ALTERNATOR
6. Be sure connections are secure.
7. Plug in charger it should show charging. Leave it over night
8. Before disconnecting charger disconnect power to the charger.
THE FUMES OF A BATTERY ARE EXPLOSIVE DO NOT USE FLAMES NEAR BATTERY
DO NOT ALLOW SPARKS NEAR BATTERY!
Okay... One can not see the negative battery terminal so.... Connect the negative clip from your charger to the chassis and then remove the RED plastic cover in front of the black relay box above the battery OR the plastic cover from the positive battery terminal and connect the positive cable. Make sure you have good connections by watching the meter on your charger. Then plug in the charger and turn it on. Charge time depends on the strength of your charger. I'm going to go hook mine up again because I need to go out for a bit. I don't think I'm going to like changing this battery..... Just thought I'd share..... Good luck.
Make sure that you do not use a 12v charger on a 6v battery ... regardless of any adaptor!
This is a common issue that can be solved if you are a little 'electrically minded': get two different colour coded cables with alligator clips on both ends and using a multimeter check that the positive output of the charger is 'clipped' to the positive terminal of the battery terminal (usually use a 'red' cable) and do the same for the negative parts (using a 'black' cable). To minimize potential issue with a short circuit, I would suggest connecting a low wattage old 12V car bulb (3W recommended) in series between the positive output of the charger and the positive terminal of the battery: this will also limit the current load.
