    How often do you charge a glow starter?

    How often do you charge a glow starter? I have a rechargeable one, and i was just wondering? My engine doesn't want to start now, and it has been about a week since i charged it.

    Dont charge it for long periods at once because that can lower the battery life (like charging it overnight)
    When i charge mine i dont wait for it to be dead and i charge it for 2-3 hours. i dont know exactly how long it is supposed to take but 2 hours after every day you use it should keep it nice and charged

    A little touch up every day like that will work, but I don't see a problem with longer charges when the battery is more drained. Those wall chargers usually have really low rates that over charging isn't a big concern, though I wouldn't recommend leaving it on the charger for more than the maximum amount of time it should take to be fully charged. It also depends on the battery's capacity. I had a glow ignitor with a 4400 mah battery and it could go for a very long time before it needed a recharge.
