    Silly me, I happened to let my motorcycle sit with the key in the ignition for a couple hours, and the battery drained to about 11V. Can these liPoly batteries be recharged successfully to turn the motorcycle over, or am I screwed? It seems like it is an expensive mistake. It's currently hooked up to the proper charger, will try to start it up tonight.

    Yes, with the Optimate, it can be revived. I've seen this charger bring many back from as low as 3V.

    Your link is for the 6 & 16V charger. Did you mean you have this one?

    You need the Optimate to revive a drained battery. At 11V, the battery isn't dead/fried.[​IMG]

    No good. You didn't buy from me then. :S

    I might be of help if it is truly dead. Contact me direct.

    just don't put a battery minder charger or any charger on it with a De-Sulfator. that will really screw things up. Battery Tender doesn't have that feature.
