    Not sure bout the specifics. But i had friend help me out using a powerbank when my almost 5 yr old motolite decided to quit on me in a mall parking.

    Pwede i-charge. Pero ang alam ko matagal ang charge nun ah. Hrs ang bilang. Tapos pag nagstart na, 1 day lang yun, pag start mo the next day dead ulit yun

    Kung ganun din naman, eh tumawag ka na lang sa Motolite o kung anong battery shop at magpa-deliver ng bago.

    1. some batteries can hold enough juice for a few minutes, so that you can start a car very shortly after the battery was charged by a battery charger. but if you wait a few more minutes, you won't be able to do it.
    2. some MT cars can (easily be) push-started, even with a dying battery. it takes a lot less electricity to power the sparking circuits, compared to the starter's requirements. but i am told, some of today's newer cars may not be push-started, due to built-in safety features; i don't know about those.
    3. a very dead battery may not even light a flashlight bulb.

    if you have an AT or CVT car, it is a good idea to have a battery charger at home, or motolite's battery delivery number.
    do those mall-advertised handhelds work? i do not know.

    if a 15 to 30 minute charge doesn't do it, 2 hours' worth probably won't, either.
    we are charging the battery so's it can power the starter; we are not charging it to full rated capacity. hence just a few minutes' charge.

    sometimes, sulfated batteries can be revived if you use a seven stage battery reconditioner. i have used them on AGM, maintenance free, gel cell and flooded batteries with success when the regular battery charger has failed.

    TS balitaan kita in a few days.

    Mau battery ako dito na sira. 6v na lang ang naiiwan na charge even after charging it for 2 days straight.

    I borrowed a battery charger with desulfator, yung ctek. Currently in the process of 'reviving' the battery

    Even if these work, it's too risky to leave a highly combustible object in your car. The reason I just change battery regularly.
