    Thanks for pointing out that if your battery is dead then you can damage your engine and need to jump start to the car whenever you want to use it. I think that I accidentally left my lights on a few too many times (plus my car is old), so my battery is shot. I’ll have to get a new one. But, I wonder if there’s someone who would buy by used battery or something so that I’m not just throwing it away.

    Hey David – does the age of the battery effect the charging time needed? Also can charging too long be hazard? (getting too hot, etc)? The old boat has a battery that has been in there for years and we always leave the charger on it overnight to a few days at the beginning of the year. Thought has crossed my mind that we may come back to a barn on fire.

      Hi Chad! That’s a good question! Yes, the age of the battery affects the charging time. Think of it this way, as your battery ages, its potential diminishes. Therefore, overcharging will push it to its limits and may cause it to explode. I suggest you keep watch over it. I hope this addresses your concern.

    This is some really good information about auto batteries. My battery is a little old, and I worry about it losing its charge. So, I liked that you pointed out that it would be smart of me to know what the difference is between voltage and amps. That does seem like it would make a huge difference when picking a charger.

    Thanks for mentioning that not all car batteries can be charged and that you need to check it first to be sure that it is able to. We checked ours, and it can be charged. My husband just called and said that he thinks his car battery is dead. I think he’ll be able to find someone at work to help him jump start it, but I’d rather just get a new battery so that we don’t have to charge it to often. We’ll have to start looking around for a company that could help.
