There may be instances that your car’s battery got discharged because you haven’t used it for a long time. You may have accidentally left a light on which caused your car battery to drain.
I purchased both a portable jump starter and a car battery charger. It is better to have these tools for emergency purposes.
Also, someone might be in need of them and I could lend them a helping hand. In fact, I bought a car battery charger for my wife, too, and taught her how to use it. I also recommend to my customers to get one, especially when they have cars that they don’t use for a long time or when it’s winter season.
There are two ways to restore your car’s battery charge. You can either jump start it and drive it for a few minutes if you need to use it right away. Otherwise, you may use a car battery charger to recharge if you don’t plan to use your vehicle yet.
Using a car charger takes longer. So, if you need to use your car, a jump start is the best option. So, how long does it take to charge a car battery anyway? Will you have enough time if you have an appointment in a few hours?
Let’s explore the timelines and see how long the process takes. We’ll also discuss some factors related to charging your car’s battery.
