if it stalls when you remove positive battery terminal then your alternator is bad Yes, it could be the alternator, but I have an 89 Celebrity and when I first got it we had the same problem and would die out every few minutes and need a boost. We changed the alternator, did not help. We bought a Duralast Gold battery from Auto Zone which helped a little but did not fix the problem. We then took the car to an alternator repair shop called Gabby's in Knoxville TN and they replaced a large fuse under the dashboard and I never had the problem again. Cost me $5.00.
You simply cannot as it is THE battery that you are charging...
when starting my car, cannot
Just like the battery on any other vehicle, connect the charger's clips to the battery terminals, red to positive and black to negative. However, because the Sportster has a relatively small battery, if charging at a high amperage (ten amps or more), it's important to monitor charging carefully unless the charger is fully automatic. Don't leave a small battery charging at a constant 10 amps overnight. For peace of mind and foolproof charging, I recommend using a Battery Tender, which you can leave connected to the battery whenever the bike is parked. It cannot overcharge yet keeps the battery at full capacity.
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.
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.
No it cannot. Your battery maybe bad or your charging system may have quit. Have a service shop load test the battery and check your charing system.
No. When a laptop is plugged in, it immediately switches to AC power and begins charging the battery. The battery cannot become "overcharged" because special circuitry in the battery is designed to prevent this.
Don't know this cars specifics, but usually, if the alternator light is on in your dash (the battery symbol) it means that your alternator is not charging your battery or that your battery cannot hold a charge.
The Deltran Supersmart Battery Tender is the optimal choice in battery chargers for cars. It switches from a full charging mode to a float charging mode to ensure that battery is kept at maximum, it has a reverse polarity protection to ensure the user cannot be harmed, and it comes backed by a 10-year-warranty. You can buy it on amazon.com for approx. $43.

If there is corrosion on the terminals then you will have a bad connection that will not transfer power from the battery to the starter. It is just like disconnecting the cable. Electrical current cannot flow properly through the corrosion,
The battery cannot be removed quickly! Inductance of the wiring stores energy and keeps the current flowing and decaying smoothly. There will be an opposite polarity, higher voltage pulse on the battery terminals, limited by the circuit capacitance only.
