The Best Tips For Recharging Your Car Battery. Your car battery may not always last as long as you’d like it to, especially if you’re doing certain things with your car, that cause your batteries to drain down. If you do things like leave your headlights on, while your car is turned off, you may find that your car battery will stop working because it has lost all its charge. If you see that your battery’s indicator is yellow or clear, then it means that you need to charge it, to get your vehicle back up and running again. That usually doesn’t happen for at least 5 years. If you don’t really know how to do that, we can give you some tips to follow in order to do it right. Remember to be extra careful when charging it, because battery acid is harmful, so you need to protect your skin and your clothing. Check it out. You can use a trickle charger to give your batter a slow, steady stream of electricity from a power outlet. This helps the battery to hold the charge for much longer.. You need to clean the terminals of the battery and never touch the terminals if you see them covered with whitish powder, because this is dried sulfuric acid and it may cause burns on your skin.. Remove the battery’s cell caps at the top of the battery or under the yellow strip of the battery, before beginning to charge it.. Ensure that you turn off your car and attach the cable or wires to the terminals of the battery. Connect the red wire to the red/positive terminal and the other wire (possibly blue or black) to the matching-colored or negative terminal. Don’t let the wires touch, to avoid sparks or burns.. After you have connecter the terminals, connect the charger to the electrical outlet and the battery will begin to charge on its own.. After charging the battery up, make sure it works, by turning on the engine or by using a hydrometer to see the amount of electric energy there is in the fluid..
