Can a car battery recharge itself?

No, a charge must come from an external source. But it's confusing to some people because a battery can be discharged at the surface of the plates and if the battery is left alone for a few minutes some of the charge deep in the plates will distribute across the medium and you may have a little more charge available. A battery is simply a chemical storage device for an electrical charge. The charge initially comes from an outside source, such as an alternator, and as long as the materials inside the battery are in good condition, the battery will continue to take and hold a charge. Once the materials start to break down, the battery fails.

What do beeps indicate when charging GEM car?

Gem Beeps When your Gem Vehicle beeps when you are trying to charge it . This means your pack voltage of your battery pack is too low to take a charge. Your battery pack needs to have a certain amount of voltage to allow your charger to iniate a charge. You need to get a regular 12 volt battery charger and charge each battery individually . You do not have to disconnect the interconnects on each battery. Just charge each battery for about 2 hours on the 10 amp charge and then replug the onboard charger . Eventually it should start charging. Now if you charge each battery and the on board charger will not come on you may have destroyed the batteries and they need to be replaced/

Do you have to charge a new battery for it to work?

You may not have to, as some batteries come with a little bit of charge in them. However, I would say to charge it before you use it, so its at full capacity.

Do you need to charge a brand new motorcycle battery?

One view: Some batteries come with a charge which may or not start the motorcycle. I have seen batteries come that are not topped off with acid, but the acid is sent in a separate container that you need to pour in. I would say in most cases that you need to charge or jump the new battery. Take it for a 10 minute ride and you should be good to go. Alternate view: When you put the acid in the battery it does charge itself somewhat, but not fully (perhaps only 75%). That is why it says to charge it, follow the instructions with the battery! When you charge it fully it makes the battery last longer. To charge the battery, you have to buy a battery charger and you need one that will only charge at 2 amps. A "smart" battery "tender" may not work as it may register the battery as fully charged. You need to use a simple (non computerized) 1-2 amp trickle charger. There are rules about the max rates to trickle charge, I've seen 10% of rated cold cranking amps (CCA). Lower amperage will be safer but take longer to charge.
