Battery recharging

Your vehicle has a maintenance-free, calcium-based battery.

Х If the battery becomes discharged in a short time (because, for example, the headlights or interior lights were left on while the vehicle was not in use), recharge it by slow charging (trickle) for 10 hours.

If the battery gradually discharges because of high electric load while the vehicle is being used, recharge it at 20- - 30A for two hours.
