You'll need to determine what voltage it is, I imagine its either a 12 volt or possibly a 6 volt. Then you'll have to get a charger right for battery voltage. Ebay is good for these. Charge the battery for 12-16hrs. You'll have to remove the little cell plugs on the top while it charges and leave it in a well ventilated area until it's finished. Then wait 2 hrs and replace the plugs. Keep an eye on the fluid levels too, they need to be kept topped up. (you can buy battery water from an auto store)

    You can always get a cheap battery charger from Walmart, but your best bet is to get a Deltran Battery Tender Jr. Once the battery is fully charged, it will turn itself off. That way, you don't over charge the battery.

    You will want to pick up a Delron Battery Tender Plus, It won't overcharge the battery and ruin it.
    I have 2 and use them all the time.

    With a battery charger.
    Coleman makes a portable charger that fits under a scooter seat or in a top case.
    It holds a charge for an instant jump start.
    A trickle charger won't jump start your scoot.

    Presumably it's a 6 volt? Get a battery charger, connect plus to plus and minus to minus and leave it overnight. If it's a water-filled battery rather than a modern sealed one, pull off the little cover while it's charging (it wouldn't hurt to make sure the water levels are correct too).
