When a battery is getting old, or when a car has been left without starting for awhile, the battery will run down and need to be recharged. You can do this by jump starting the vehicle. However, Select Automotive in Virginia Beach wants you to know that a good way to recharge the battery is with the aid of a battery charger.

To begin with, don't plug the charger in until it is hooked up to the battery. To hook the charger to the battery you will place the red clamp on the charger on the red terminal on the battery. The black clamp goes on the black battery post.

At this point, you will want to plug in the charger. It will take a few hours to charge a battery that is completely run down. Some chargers will shut off automatically. Some chargers don't, so keep checking the charger so that the battery does not overcharge.
