disconnect it, and dont let it go below 12v. Or use a permannet trickle charger. Too low and they dont recover/properly.

The new different type batteries now require different type chargers. One of the cheap 15-20 dollar chargers won't work properly on the V's battery. Take it to a shop to have it tested, they can tell you if it is ok, charge it if it will do any good, and explain about different chargers.

At how many amps can your charger charge at, kmkadm? 1 amp won't do much. At least 1.2 amps is recommended for 20 hours on a battery with less than 11.5 V. Standard charge is 1.2 A for 5 to 10 hours, and quick charge of 5 A for 1 h on battery with over 11.5 V. You can also charge it at 2 amps for about 5 hours. See charging intructions on battery... Your battery's integrity may have suffered from being discharged over a long time.

Replacing a faulty battery early on is much cheaper than later after you've killed your charging system and have to repair that as well. Also, welcome aboard.
