    So it seems you shouldnít use a normal battery charger to charger a lithium battery, no one really give a definite reason why apart from it may damage the battery as lithiums need 14v and normal donít charge that high I have just got an Optimate lithium charger for £50 which does the job perfect so far which is easy to use with easy to understand status lights on the device and the quick connector too My other (normal) charger is  CTEK MX5 which does cars and bikes and has never let me down and never had a battery fail on a vehicle yet and itís in use 24hrs a day 7 days a week alternating between 2 cars and another bike.
