Can you charge a moped battery with a car battery charger?
Yes you can. A 12v charger can charge any 12v battery. The difference is your scooter battery is 7ah (amp hours, for those reading who may not know) and a car battery is hundreds of amp hours, so it isn’t going to take very long to charge the scooter battery compared to a automobile battery.
How do I know if my moped is charging?
When the scooter and outlet are both correctly hooked up to the charger, an indicator light will come on to show you that the scooter is charging. This light is usually red and may be flashing. When the scooter is fully charged, the light will turn green. Let the battery charge until the indicator light turns green.
How long does it take to charge a 50cc moped battery?
A completely flat motor scooter battery can take as long as 20 hours to fully recharge. However, a battery that has lost only a fraction of its charge will take significantly less time, more like 3 to 7 hours to make a full recharge. You can tell exactly how much charge your battery has by using a voltmeter.
Will a moped kick start with a dead battery?

Can scooter batteries be recharged?
