I would charge it for about 1-2 seconds-that's it! You also need to factor in what amp rate you want to charge at. If it was my battery, I would charge it at .001A with the delta peak value set to .01mV. Good luck and happy racing!

The charge time will depend on the charge rate. For a 1.3AH lead acid battery I'd charge it at 100 milliamps for 12-14 hours. If you want to quick charge it, you could hit it with 500 milliamps for two and half hours.

A also hear that too many quick charges will reduce battery life?

True or False?
