Battery trickle charger..
So.. I think my battery is dead...again!
Problem was I charged the battery with my dad's battery charger..
Although I set it to charge at minimum charging power (0.85Ah) and on the battery it says to charge at 0.8Ah from 5 to 10 hours, I charged at the 0.85Ah for 8h just to be on the safe side.
Thing is... before I unplugged the battery charger from the battery with the multimeter it was measuring about 16 volts and I was shocked
The battery does hold a stable charge at around 13volts (if I don't try to turn on the bike) BUT it just won't turn the engine and I can only hear the starter relay going "trrrrrrrrrr" as if the battery was flat...
It's dead ain't it?!
Or am I missing something?
So now, I've bought this battery charger:
MOTOBATT LITTLE BOY 12 VOLT MOTORCYCLE CHARGER TENDER GEL AGM FLOODED 5YR WARR | eBay
At 31 USD shipped to Portugal I'ma give it a try.. oh and it has a 5year warranty!!
Anyone ever used one of these?
