This should not have caused a problem. Recharging on a trickle charger won't hurt, however, I suspect you could have a dead cell, in which case, it will not hold a charge no matter what. I would be looking into buying a new battery.
Hope this helps!

I have shumacher se 82-6 battery charger and iam trying to charge my Chevy s-10 battery that is a interstate model mt-75 what setting do I put it in 6v 6a or 12v 2 a or 12v 6 a please help


12 volt 6 amps to quickly charge it from dead/flat or very low.

12 volt 2 amps as a trickle charge to maintain the battery when you are not using the vehicle for an extended time.

How can i check a generator on a 67 shovel to see if it's charging properly?


Use a multimeter to measure battery voltage before and after starting. If 6V the battery voltage should rise to around 6.9V after starting, and if 12V the battery voltage should rise to around 13.8V after starting. If less than about 6.5V / 13V, the generator's not charging well enough. If less than about 6V / 12V, or if the battery voltage never rises at all, or frankly falls, after starting, then the generator's not charging at all.

We have bought a battery charger HB 1206S DC6V - 12V 6AMP, but it does not state what is the state of charge do the lightes go out when it has reached changed state or light up please help


Product Detail Model No.: HB-1206S
The item is used for charging 6V-12V lead-acid batteries
Max Charging Current: 6A
AC Power Input: 64W
Output: 6/12V DC 3. 52A
Batteries Capacities: 15AHR-80AHR
Unit Packing: Colorful box
Dimension: 18cm x 10cm x 20cm
G. W. / N. W.: 1. 85KG/1. 75KG
Certifications: GS, CE, BS, ROHS, SAA

Main functions:
(1) The HB-1206S battery charger has the features of convenient operations, reliable safety and high performance.
(2) During charging, if turn up overload, the battery charger will keep itself at normal current and normal voltage with its self-automatic protecting function.
(3) If being short circuit, the battery charger will switch off itself, and turn normal after one or two minutes.
(4) The output current of the battery charger is very stationary, so it can protect the battery charger very well. It only costs 3 or 4 hours to fully charge the batteries.
(5) Indication of charging: the battery charger has 6 pilot lamps. The more pilot lamps shining, the less electric quantity is. The charging process finishes when all the pilot lamps go out.
(6) The battery charger can be switched between 6V and 12V, so it can charge for 6V and 12V accumulators. You can select 6V or 12V according to your own needs.
(7)The operations are very convenient: Put the red clip to the positive pole of the accumulator which indicated "+", and put the black clip to the negative pole of the accumulator which indicated "-", then plug in power source, the accumulator will be charged.

I have a 3010 John Deere +24 volt pos ground how do I change from 24 volt gererator to a 24 volt altenator


The 3010 24v JD system is not a true 24v system. It is a balanced split 12v system, with one positive ground battery and one negative ground battery. The only 24 volt accessory is the starter, where the batteries meet in a series to provide 24 volts for starting. All other accessories are 12v, half powered by the positive ground battery and half powered by the negative battery. The generator charges one battery in one direction and the other battery in the reverse direction. Therefore a 24v alternator is not easily adapted to this system.
The usual solution is to change to a 12v system with an alternator, changing the starter to 12v and changing the polarity of the positive ground battery to negative ground.
The cost of a 12v starter and alternator is far less than the cost of a 24v alternator, plus the added benefit of using 12v lights and other accessories.
JD switched to this 12v type of system with alternator during the 20 series production, but used two 6v batteries in a series due to the larger cranking amp rating of the 6v batteries occupying the same physical space.

I have a 5000 w maxa ER generator that has a battery assist added ( PM 0525312.17 ) Question...Is the battery a regular 12v car battery, or maybe a lawn tractor battery?? Once the generator is started...


Replace battery with your choice of 12v products considering physical size, amp range and warranty. Lawn tractor batteries seem to have the least life/duty cycle. There are two methods of charging the battery used by Coleman. One is to charge the battery with charger/alternator coils installed under flywheel of the engine and second is to charge with built-in circuit in generator itself. Examine your wiring diagram to discover which you have. Simple test with volt meter will show if system is charging. Test voltage at battery with engine off, then start engine and retest looking for slightly higher voltage indicating charge. The charging system is like a trickle charger and not like your auto with initially high amp charge then taper to minimum. If your run your generator for long periods of time and you feel that the battery is being overcharged, then rig a switch to stop charging after one hour or longer. Good holiday

The electric clutch needs full power in the battery to stay engaged. I would recommend you check your charging system before replacing the battery. Put a digital volt meter across the + and - terminals of the battery and while running at about 1/2 throttle you should be over 13 volts DC. Probably around 13.5 or so. If not you have a charging problem. Lawn mower batteries I have seen seem to last only 2-3 years. I would also recommend a trickle charger for extended periods of non use. Don't forget the Stabil also.

Hope this helps.

Batt dead jump start does not seem to charge


Sounds like a dead or shorted cell battery. Charging system is probably working but is showing overcharge since it is trying to charge a brick. Replace the battery and all should be well.

Try removing the battery after the next cut and have it tested. If it test good leave it out. If it keeps it's charge you have a draw on the battery. The simple fix is to install a switch on the negative side of the battery. If it drains out of the unit you have a bad battery.
Thanks for choosing Fix ya
