Have you checked the power going to the alternator? Alternators should get 12 volts at the main stud. a fairly hefty white wire attaches there. that wire has a fuse labeled "ALT" at the positive battery terminal. check that wire for power if it doesnt have power, check the fuse. Aha ! pulled off tape around main power wire and found wires had pulled almost all the way out of the connector, could wiggle wire with meter connected and see voltage fluctuate from 2V up 11V, cleaned and re-crimped and seems fine. Thanks for the Help, I will be back.

With a standard battery charger, no. The charger will stop charging when the battery is fully charged.

It will read 12.6 volts - thirty minutes after charging.

With the proper charging equipment, yes.

To check if your TomTom is being charged,connect the charger ,power on the unit , tap the bottom right of the Driving view to get to the route summary screen. If the battery is being charged, the word Charging is shown under the battery symbol on the right. If you don't see the word Charging, the battery is either fully charged (indicated by a completely filled battery symbol) or it isn't receiving external power.

The phone will go flat quickly. When charged it'll never switch from "charging" to "charged". Or it'll say that charging is complete real fast, even when starting from a flat battery.

it means it still charging, when fully charged that will turn into a cord plug

NO, a 12 volt battery cannot be charged with a 6 volt charger. To charge any battery, the charging voltage has to be, at least, slightly higher than higher than the voltage of the battery. Current flowing through the battery is what accomplishes the charging, and no current will flow at or below the voltage of the battery to be charged.

Yes, rechargable batteries tend to get warmer when charged.

When a battery is charged, the energy you put into it is stored in the form of chemical changes inside.

Either the charging system has failed or the battery is bad.

User Avatar

Sometimes even though the voltage at charging is good the battery or alternator could be low on charge or charging low for your vehicles specs.

Can You Charge...Yes. As a matter of fact, in order to charge a battery, the charging voltage HAS to be greater than the charged battery's voltage or no current will flow and charging cannot happen.Of course, the charging voltage cannot be excessive, or damage to the battery being charged will result.In your question, 4.6 volts is not excessive for a 4.2 volt battery.

if the laptop battery over charged, the laptop battery will get hot, Seriously will damage the battery, but now most of the laptop battery have a overshoot protection, when the battery was full charged, it will stop charging automatic, so it won't worry about it

Dead cell in battery, loose of corroded battery connections, or the charging system on the mower engine is defective.

There should be a little light next to the off button. Its green when the battery if fully charged, its orange when its charging/ needs charging and its red when its got very low battery. I hope this helps you :D

Most good battery chargers are automatic and will stop charging when the battery is fully charged. But if the charger is a manual charger it can overcharge the battery. With this type charger it is up to you to remove the charger when the battery is fully charged. Normally this is based on the amount of time the charger takes to charge the battery pack. Operators manual will list the time.

There is a charging system that is under the flywheel. It is a magnetto system.

To run all the electronics on the vehicle and to keep the battery charged.

I don't think that charging a cell phone battery every night hurts the battery. It does not matter how long the battery is being charged. The battery is created for specified period of time and then needs to be changed.

User Avatar

If it is completely charged and you keep charging it, yes.

User Avatar

No , for the battery to be charged the engine must be running . This means that your alternator , if it's functioning properly , is charging the car's battery as the engine is on/running .

User Avatar

Most definitely you can ruin it. Always charge an auto battery with an automatic charger that shuts down when the battery if fully charged.

Every portable DVD player has a light somewhere to show how good the power is, such as a green, orange, or red light. If you are charging the battery while the player is off, either a light on the battery or on the player will shine red when charging. The light will change to green when the battery is fully charged

If you reverse the connection of the battery charger you will discharge the battery. You may be able to correct the connection and charge it properly, or the battery may be ruined.
