    Had Batt around 6months. Charged it over night as didn't use for a day and a bit. Got started this morning and now reading Batt: 11.2!! Obviously need to buy a new one, but does that put me out of action for the rest of the day?? Presumably the one I now go and buy needs charging for a good while??...such a bugger!! Busy-busy...

    new batteries are fully charged.
    they may need a top up charge if they have been sitting for a while.

    I think from my old school days they are all partly charged in fact depending on the time on the shelf these days fully charged..

    it damages batteries not to keep em with charge in..

    ya beat me to it gto..:D

    my big problem is ...are they really dead....I would keep struggling until one day...yes they are no good...:D

    dreading the day my backpack one dies....

    not a clue how your supposed to get to it...

    probs easier to just buy another..£85 ..

    Cheers fellas.

    I can remember my last batt (which I kept) went on me - or rather I thought it went on me, but turned out to be the pump! so gonna charge that up and see what happens as it was only a couple of months old. See if that gets me through the day first. Gonna work the afternoon instead, and give it a good charge over night and see what's what b4 buying a new one.

    Thanks once again! Great website with helpful people, this.

    U should get WCForums Window stickers to promote!! :)

    ctek is designed to do a slow and timed charge on your battery will charge a 85 amp in 5 or 6 hours
