What is a Battery Charger?

Your car battery will not last forever, but, if you have a car battery charger in your garage, you can keep the battery healthy and alive for a longer period of time. Your car battery’s health is dependent on your vigilance. You should be checking the voltage level of your battery every month to make sure you are never stranded due to a dead battery.

If you detect a low voltage in your battery, then it is advisable to remove the battery for an overnight charge from your battery charger. A typical home battery charger is a transformer and rectifier that changes the AC power in your home outlets to DC power that is stored in your car battery. Most chargers are restricted to an amp current to avoid battery overcharging. An overnight charge reinvigorates your weak battery.
