FAQ

Do I have to charge a motorcycle battery?

Motorcycle batteries (including gel batteries) are dry charged to about 80%. If you don’t give the battery a top up charge of at least 3-4 hours (more for larger batteries, we normally recommend charging new batteries overnight before use) the battery will only ever be 80% efficient (which will greatly shorten the life span of the battery)

My motorcycle battery has gone flat, can I recharge it?

Yes, you can recharge a flat motorcycle battery as long as the battery isn’t damaged and is accepting a charge, but, once the battery has gone flat a few times, this is often the beginning of the end of the batteries life. You would normally need to recharge a flat battery at least overnight, or longer if the battery voltage is very low.
As long as the lead plates in the battery aren’t damaged, they can often be recovered with a charger specially designed to recover deeply discharged batteries like the Oxford Oximiser motorcycle battery chargers.

I’ve taken the top off my sealed battery (YTX, CTX, DTX etc) and can’t see any acid in it?

Maintenance free or sealed type batteries (which normally start with the code YTX, CTX or DTX, e.g. YTX9-BS) are known as ‘dry cell’ batteries (as opposed to older, conventional style batteries which are known as ‘flooded cell’ batteries). The lead plates in maintenance free batteries absorb the battery acid/electrolyte so the acid doesn’t have to initially cover the plates and won’t be visible if the cap is removed from the battery. If you remove the cap and you can see battery acid, this can mean the battery may have been overfilled (there’s too much acid for the lead plates to absorb) or it can be an indication of a poor quality battery as cheaper batteries made from cheaper plate material don’t absorb all the acid. Please remember: If you remove the cap and don’t see any electrolyte in the sealed type battery, this is completely normal so don’t top the battery up with more acid as this can cause the battery to leak or fail!
