6V Battery Charge Time

Postby Marion(57 Loboy) » Wed Sep 25, 2013 4:37 pm

I always park my Loboy the same way. Park it...turn off the fuel...let it die...turn off the ignition.

Well, it seems the last time I parked it I didn't turn the ignition off, and the battery was completely dead yesterday.

I used a 12V charger on the 2AMP setting just to get it running using the hand crank, and it fired right up.

My question is, how long will it take to charge the battery just letting the cub sit there and purr at 3/4 throttle?

It realy needs to run for an hour or 2 all depending on the condition of your charging system.
