    Yes and no. It depends on the charger. It should be a 1.5 to 4 amp charger. Anything more than that will be too much for a small scooter battery. 2 amp is ideal. Some chargers put out a steady amount of current and others adjust to what the battery needs. The variable rate chargers are best because you are less likely to overcharge it and boil it.

    Good luck.

    Yes, any battery charger that says it can charge that voltage battery is ok to use. For example if the car battery charger is for 12 volt car batteries, and your scooter has a 12 volt battery, then you can use it. But you should remove the water filler caps while your charging it on the lowest Amps charger setting selectable on the charger. A 2 Amp or 10 Amp charging rate would be fine. At 10 Amps you only need to charge it for 4 hours.

    yes it can, the battery is smaller though and will take a charge quickly, don't over charge it. Also for about $10 you can get what is called a trickle charger, it keeps your battery always charged, they are great for bikes and scooters.

    Yes, but if it has 2 setting (rapid) and (trickle) use the trickle setting.
