Recharging Battery?


Recommended Posts

Wondered if anyone can advise on how long it takes a battery to charge?

My mums 2007 fiesta has always been used in town and generally short driving trips but try to give it a longer drive once a month or so.

My mum was sitting in her car with the radio on and air but not engine for 3/4 hour while waiting for someone at hospital apt - result - battery flat!

Got a push start and has been driving with radio off and car hasn't been used at night so no lights.

Will the battery charge to full with short journeys or do we need to take it for a longer drive? If longer drive what sort of mileage is required?

Any advice greatfully received!

It is better if you use battery charger to charge your car.

Please do not waste fuel just in order to charge the battery.

Have the battery/charging circuit checked free at an accessory shop.
