CHARGING UP CAR BATTERY

Is it essential to remove the car battery for charging?

Re: CHARGING UP CAR BATTERY

Not necessary to physically remove it, or strictly speaking even to disconnect it altho i would recommend disconnecting both terminals (first making sure you have a note of the car stereo code or whatever else may be a pain to restart afterwards). Remember to disconnect -ve first, and reconnect -ve last.

And best do trickle charge rather than fast charge if you have a choice.

Re: CHARGING UP CAR BATTERY

as Mmm said but also pop the cell caps off on top of the battery. as the battery tend to get a bit warm on charger and also it lets the gasses out while charging also it a good time to check the wateracid levels at the same time and top up with a bit of distilled water if needed

hope this helps

Re: CHARGING UP CAR BATTERY

Definately not req if you are just trickle charging, in fact, disconnecting can cause more harm than good on modern cars. In most instances, not only will the clock and sterio need to be reprogrammed but the engine's ECU will be wiped as well and will have to 're learn' how to run your car properly. While it is doing this, the car will be running below it's best also useing more fuel.

The best advise is to turn on something, sidelights for example, when switching the charger on or off. This reduces the chance of any voltage 'spike' when the charger is turned on/off. NEVER connect a charger that is already live, connect 1st then switch on. Hope this helps.
