Charging mojo battery

Postby foxtrot » Thu Oct 31, 2013 8:18 pm

So I have a mojo and after I moved this summer I can't seem to find the charger. It's a 6v 4.5ah lead acid battery. Any tips on charging this? I did fine one AC pack but I'm not sure it it is the right pack. Can someone post a picture of the label on their ac adapter. I was thinking maybe I could hook this up to my motorcycle battery "tender" or something like that.

Just buy one of these. Best charger on the market for SLA. Will work with all 6 volt SLA batteries. Best part is that you can leave it hooked up 24/7/365 as it has a maintenance mode, no more weak or dead batteries after sitting.

If you have a multi meter charge the battery until the stand-alone power is 6.75-6.9 volts. My charger is as follows
input: 120AC 60Hz 6W
output: 6V DC 500mA

Any 6 volt charger will work. I use a standard car battery charger on mine.

Car battery chargers are 12V. If you mean using the 6V option on a 12/6 car charger you are destroying your SLA. You are charging it with about 10 times too much amps/hour.

1 a/h is maximum for sealed lead acid batteries.

I have been charging mine this way for five years.
