# How many amp hours is a motorcycle battery?

The battery's Amp Hour Rating describes how long the battery will last at a fixed discharge rate. For small motorcycle batteries, the average is generally calculated over a ten-hour period, at 1/10 of the battery's amp rating. For example, a 14 Amp-Hour rating means the battery can discharge 1.4 amps for 10 hours.

Also to know is, how many volts is a typical motorcycle battery?

A healthy battery should read right around 12.5 volts. If it's much lower than that, say 12.0 or less, charge the battery before proceeding. If the battery won't hold a charge, or shows signs of damage, you should replace it. Assuming the battery voltage is good, start the bike and watch the meter.

How long does it take to charge a dead motorcycle battery?

The 65Ah battery in my car, will take 18.5 hours to charge. On my bike battery charger at 6Amps from completely flat, it will take 11.25 hours to charge 9ah battery. The charger should adjust to a maintenance charge once it's full, assuming it is a half polite charger!

What is the normal voltage of a motorcycle battery?

A healthy 12 volt motorcycle battery should maintain a range from 9.5 - 10.5 volts under the load, for a good 30 seconds straight. If the battery begins to hold and then steadily declines, there is a problem. If the voltage drops to 0 volts, there is a problem. We call this, the open cell.
