To charge a car battery you need aproximatly 8000 amps To charge a car battery you need aproximatly 8000 amps

You can not charge a battery in the microwave.

You can start a car without a battery if you hook up a jump pack or use jumper camples but it could fry your alternator. It is pointless to charge a car without a battery. When you charge the car you are charging the battery.

NO You have to many AMPS from a car, you can jump start it butdon't charge it.

Yes. That's what car battery chargers are for.

A trickle charger is a car battery charger that is designed to be left on a car for very long periods of time to re-charge that car battery by slowly adding charge to the battery.

no you can not will it not charge the battery to 12volts?ie charge it but not fully

Some car battery charges will not charge a completely dead battery. You need to find a type of battery charger that is designed to charge a completely dead battery. You can get around this by hooking a car with a working battery up to the dead battery with jumper cables. The alternator/charging system of the car with the good battery will charge the dead battery. Leave them connected for about 30 min, then disconnect and try to use the battery charger again. If it still won't charge, hook it up to the car with the good battery for a longer period of time.

No, you can charge the battery while it's in the car.

add water and charge the battery

As long as both batteries are the same voltage, you can jump start with the battery. If you want to charge the battery then use a battery charger.

of course, you can do it. Sometimes, when the car battery is dead, we will use the battery booster to connect another car battery to charge it. This process needs a cable. Be careful, if you plan to do it on your own. My booster is also a charger. it has different settings for slow charge, fast charge, and boost.

Yes, A car battery can have enough charge to turn on car electrical components but not start the car. This is not much of an indication of a bad battery however. Use a volt meter to test the power in the battery. If the battery seems low put it on a trickle charge. Most modern chargers will tell you if your battery is bad or not. The battery also has to be load tested to determine if it's good or not.

only if the car your using to charge the other on is not started

I am assuming you mean with the auto engine running. Yes, that is possible but you are putting a strain on the alternator of the car. An alternator is not designed to charge a dead battery. It is designed to keep a charged battery fully charged. as long as the ATV battery is the same voltage as the car battery, usually 12 volts, you can charge it, or jump start the atv and let it charge the battery itself.

When the car doesn't start.

No, you can charge it in the car fully connected.

You can get a new battery, you can jump start the car with jumper cables and another car with a charged battery. You can also put a battery charger on your battery to give it a charge.

Yes, it will hold it's charge for at least 6 months in storage if it is a very good battery to start with.

To charge a 12v car battery,you need to increase 2v i.e 13-14v.More than that may cause damage to the battery.

No, this will place a very heavy load on the alternator of the car and may result in burning out the diodes of the car charging the battery. You could easily ruin the alternator. Purchase a battery charger and charge the dead battery with that. Alternators are not made to charge dead batteries.

No, the battery charger has to match the voltage of the battery it is to charge.

yes trickle charge takes a little while

no you can get different amp chargers but they will charge any battery the higher the amps the faster the charge but it is better to charge a battery slowly so you shouldn't charge on very high settings any 12vdc car battery charger will charge a 12vdc car battery

I assume you mean how long to charge the battery. You should never let the alternator charge a dead battery if possible. The alternator is designed to keep the battery charged but not to charge a dead battery. You put a strain on the alternator and it can cause a diode to burn out. Drive home and then put a battery charger on the battery to fully charge it.
