Yuasa Battery Charge

Very simple video walking through the steps to setup a Yuasa YTX12-BS battery from box to fully charged.

Further info correcting my video from Rob (thanks Rob)


I wanted to say that was a well made video about how to charge up a Yuasa Battery.. But, some of the info you give isn’t correct. First , after you take it off the charger, you should wait at least 1-2 hours to let the battery rest before taking a voltage reading to make sure it’s between 12.8-13.00 volts. Secondly, A flashing green on the battery tender you were using only indicates that the battery is greater than 80% charged. A steady green light is when it’s fully charged. Thirdly, that brand of Battery Tender recommends when using it to charge a newly flooded battery that it should be left on the new battery for a minimum of 24 hours, in addition to whatever time it takes for the charger to get to the float stage. Here are some links to support what I’m saying.

Other than the minor mistake, I really like the way you made the video and how clear your instructions were. Plus you can’t go wrong when using Rush as Background music..:-)
Ride Safe! – Rob
