Most drivers in Flemington, NJ have had to deal with a dead battery. Charging a car battery is a simple matter, but there are a few things to remember. Ditschman/Flemington Lincoln wants to remind you of these important tips.

Always make sure your battery charger is off before you attach the leads to the battery. When you do decide to turn on the charger, make sure that you have it set to the slowest charge. This is always the best place to start, and it will also give you a more thorough charge than the rapid chargers which are marketed as a quick fix.

Know that using a portable unit at home for charging a car battery is going to take some time. You can plan on a couple of hours at a minimum depending on how low your car's battery is. Jumper cables can still be useful in an emergency.
