How to Charge a Dead Battery

If you've ever gone to start your vehicle in the morning only to find that it won't turn over because the battery is dead, it's a downright frustrating situation. Neighbors and friends may not be around for a jump start, but if you keep a battery charger on hand, you can try to get your battery operational on your own.

To charge your battery, locate its positive and negative terminals. You should also make sure that the battery charger is unplugged from an electrical outlet before attaching the cables to the terminals. After attaching the cables, turn on the charger.

It may take several hours to charge your battery sufficiently. as most chargers only deliver power at a rate of two to six amps. Some chargers will shut off automatically when the battery is charged, but make sure what the exact process is by reading the charger manual.
