  2. Charge the battery until the LED light located on the charger changes from “Red” to “Green”. The green light indicates a fully charged battery. Charge the battery after every use.
  3. Never charge the battery longer than 18 hours. Failure to follow these instructions may damage your battery and will void your warranty.

  5. The battery does not need to be removed from the vehicle. Keep the battery in the rear compartment when charging.
  6. Before charging the battery, examine the battery case for cracks and other damage which may cause sulfuric acid to leak. If damage is detected, please call Radio Flyer Customer Service immediately and do not use the product any further.
