Re: battery charging

After its running it should charge your battery.

Re: battery charging

Get a multimeter and check the voltage across the battery terminals. With the motor off, the voltage should be somewhere between 12.0V and 12.7V. With the motor running, the voltage should be greater than 13.0V.
