Battery charging question

I have a CB12A-A motorcycle battery I just bought, and in the dura-last manual said it should take 12 hours on a 500m Amp charger to charge the battery, but all i have is a 2 amp charger. Does that mean it would take just three hours to charge, or will I damage the battery?

Your battery will last longer if you put it on a battery tender for 5 or 6 hours, for sure. You can get it up with your 2 amp charger, though, I'd start checking it every 20 minutes after 2 hours- just to be safe.

I would definitely use a Battery Maintainer rather than using a full 2 Amp charger.

A battery maintainer can be found here:

2A charger is fine, 500mA charger will take a long time to charge.
