Contrary to popular belief, simply going for a drive is not sufficient to recharge a flat car battery. Going for a drive can certainly help maintain a healthy battery but it won’t help revive a flat battery. The only way to properly recharge a flat car battery is to use a battery charger with high amp ratings. At R&J Batteries, we carry battery chargers from top brands such as Lester Electrical, Projecta and more.
