Any 12 volt charger will work. Be sure the fluid is well up, in the battery.

I need to replace a fifutec sealed lead-acid rechargeable battery [12v -2.8ah]


http://www.atbatt.com carries a large array of sealed lead acid batteries. I did a search for 12V 2.8ah and here is one of the results:

Stanley 450 amp how long does it takebto charge


Sealed lead acid batteries are at the heart of most jumpstarters, mobile power supplies and equipment with standby capability. Such batteries arrive in a wide variety of qualities and while not particularly unreliable they do tend to fail suddenly.

Most often it is leaving them in a discharged state for more than a few weeks that hastens the death of all lead acid batteries. Even leaving one in a half charged state for as little as a month will permanently damage the battery causing it to have a reduced capacity.



The instruction leaflets supplied with such equipment invariably say recharge should take place periodically and after every use.

Usually there is an indicator light to show when charging has been successful but an overnight charge should be sufficient for a simple top-up charge and perhaps 24 hours for a periodic charge.



Use a digital voltmeter to check the battery voltage after it has been off-charge for 24 hours. A young healthy 12 volt battery will read 13.2 volts. An older but still usable example will read perhaps 12.7. 12.5 volts could be usable but the battery is definitely past its best.

A 12 volt battery that has a voltage of 12 volts is only half charged and is practically useless...

Less than 12 volts after charging and it is ready for recycling.

Starting problem


Did you charge the new battery before fitting, this is most important.
Is the battery a top up/ gel or MF type. Top up and MF need acid to work, was battery filled with acid? If you do get the bike running check the charging rate of the alternator by connecting a multi meter to the battery terminals. A 12 volt battery should show 12.5 to 13.2 volts off the bike and around 14 volts on the bike with the engine running at 5 K revs. (half throttle).

Will a fob kill the battery on the bike?


Hi Anonymous, perform the following tests:
1. Fill acid type batteries to proper levels.
2. Charge battery overnight at 1-2 amps you need 12 volts or better after charging.
3. Make sure all connections are clean and tight especially the negative cable at both ends.
4. Hook up volt meter to battery and start engine, if meter falls below 9.5 v replace battery.
5. With engine running at 3600 RPM battery should read 14.3-14.7 volts if not continue tests.
6. Unplug voltage regulator from alternator at crankcase by front of primary cover.
7. To test voltage regulator go to: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=F8EjV0IjW9Q
8. With ohm meter, one lead grounded, touch alternator pin meter should read infinity, if not replace stator.
9. With ohm meter, both leads touching alternator pins meter should read 0.1 to 0.2 ohms on 1989 and later models. 0.2 to 0.4 ohms 1988 and earlier models, if not replace stator.
10. With volt meter set on AC scale, both leads touching alternator pins meter should read
16 to 20 volts AC for every 1000 RPM'S 1989 and later and 19 to 26 volts AC for every 1000 RPMS. If not replace rotor. Good luck

Can batterys be hooked together , 2 or more 12 volts and still be 12 volts.


I assume that you are talking about car or truck (vehicle) batteries or lead-acid accumulators. If so, yes, usually temporarily, when you need to boost a dead battery with a strong one, either for start-up or for charging purposes. The procedure is simple, but can be dangerous if an error occurs. A lead-acid battery contains dilute suphuric acid which can cause severe burns if it comes in contact with the skin or clothes (though some types of fabric are resistant to its effects). If fact, it can cause blindness if it explodes into you face. So beware. If in doubt, let a qualified auto-electrician do the job instead. Would you want to venture it yourself, so I can outline the procedure?

Hi there,

Your scooter uses dual 12-volt, 10-amp hour sealed recyclable lead acid battery.

You may want to open below link to see some examples of batteries suitable to your scooter.
