Default How long to charge a battery?

How long does it take to charge a battery that's down around 10V? I have an odyssey pc680 if it makes a difference.

It depends on how you're charging it.

I would think that a nice drive around town would do the trick. You can check the battery voltage every now and then. Just make sure you don't have the engine on as you'd be detecting the alternator current and not the battery current.

I think 20-30 minutes of freeway speed driving (near 3k rpm) should do it.

How long have you had the battery for? I have the same one and i'm wanting to know how long others have lasted.
