PostSubject: Battery Charging   Battery Charging I_icon_minitimeMon Jan 04, 2010 12:31 pm

Hi y'all. Happy New Year.

My husband has a BMW, with exterior battery charging capability. Given the (brrrr!) cold weather we've been experiencing, and the fact that my battery almost didn't start the other day, I was wondering if anyone has installed something similar on their Swing. I'd appreciate any advice. I have a twelve-volt, but it turns off when I shut off the ignition.

Thanks!

I have a $10 float charger from harbor freight attach the alligator clips it comes with and forget about it.

Emeskay, I use a charger called "Battery Tender". Durning the winter I swap it between the Gwing and the Swing every couple of weeks. I do get to ride each a couple of times a month even during the cold snaps as we are having now. (it was 18 degrees this morning). I travel for a living and they set dorment for a great deal of time so I use the battery tender most year around. Have a great New Years...Dick

PostSubject: Second Battery   Battery Charging I_icon_minitimeTue Oct 02, 2012 12:54 am

Hello all. I am intending to install a few electrical accessories including a stereo setup from Shark and would like to install another small battery.

I have ordered a universal motorcycle Fuze Block from Wingstuff that has a built in relay to isolate the starting battery, and want to install a small gel cell battery for power to all the electrical accessories.

My question is if anyone knows if the charging system will provide enough power to fully charge both batteries. I don't want to end up with 2 dead batteries if it will not.

Any insight is appreciated, as I am certainly no engineer or mechanic either one. geek

I use a stainless lighter socket to accept the plug which I have adapted to the charger. The socket is wired directly to the battery so I can plug in any accessory, eg tyre pump etc.
I have a main switch mounted under the tupperware to isolate the earth
( negative) wire from the rest of the scoot while charging the battery, and it also saves the battery when I am not using the scoot for extended periods.
Another benefit of this switch is it is hard to find and makes the electical system dead for security as well.
