I got a charger with a 12v dune racer I picked up and near as I can tell, it's a 1amp charger...is that possible? I read that a battery will take 6-8 hours at 2amp. The 2 batteries I have , I was told they were "newer" and held a good charge. One looks like new, but I can only take the persons word for it being new.

My question is about charging them...how critical is it to not overcharge them? I have been putting them on for 3-4 hours at a time and they don't seem to last long. Would it hurt them to put them on over night?

You want a 'smart charger' with a float feature. It will never over-charge, just keeps it topped off.

Many of us use this:

I also use it on my ATV and boat batteries.
