can i charge a scooter battery with a car battery charger?
My 50cc scooter's battery is dead. I recently bought a portable car battery charger for when my car's battery is dead. What I want to know is if I can go ahead and use that car battery charger to charge my 12v 7ah battery for my scooter.

yes, just make sure you charge the battery on as low a setting as possibleSource(s): the old fart who knows now't

I wouldn't. Scooter batteries need a Trickle Charger.

yes. as long as both are 12v. the battery will only charge as much as it needs and once they are at the same voltage the charging will stop. take one extra precaution stand the battery in some cool water and do not charge for more than stated time. If it is a battery that requires distilled water top up afterwards.

You can, as long as the car charger has a 2 amp trickle setting, if you leave it on a 10amp or higher, youre gonna overcharge it and cook the cells.
