Charging a battery is something that drivers have been doing themselves for years. However, it’s also a task that is unfamiliar to many drivers. Here are some helpful tips.

  • Make sure the vehicle and all electronics are turned off.
  • If the battery’s terminal have plastic caps, remove the caps.
  • Remove the negative cable, which is generally black.
  • Clean any dirt or debris that may be on the battery terminals.

Now, you’re ready to start charging.

  • Be sure the battery charge is turned off.
  • Take the positive cable, typically red, from the charger and connect it to the battery’s positive terminal.
  • Take the negative cable from the charger and connect it to the battery’s negative terminal.
  • Turn the battery charger on, making sure it’s at its lowest setting.

When your battery is fully charged, you can remove the charging cables. Make sure that the positive and negative cables never touch each other.
