How to Charge a Yuasa Battery


Yuasa manufactures batteries for a wide variety of applications, including industrial, marine, automotive, motorcycle, golf cart and wheeled mobility vehicle applications. Battery-charging details, such as exact current settings, will vary according to the specifications of each battery. Minor details aside, the overall process is nearly the same for all Yuasa batteries.

Step 1

Identify the battery by finding its model number. Use this number to locate the battery’s specifications in the Yuasa Battery Applications and Specifications manual. Note the rated ampere-hour value for the battery.

Step 2

Put on safety glasses and prepare the battery for charging by removing the positive and negative leads connecting it to the vehicle. Use a wire-bristle brush to clean up the terminal ends. Some batteries will be marked “MF,” indicating that they are maintenance-free.
