    Default Mobile Battery Charging Service



    Came back fm hols n my batt is totally flat... no lights, nothing at all when switch on. N cant really try to push start in a basement carpark.

    Is there anyone that provide battery charging on site? Just need enough juice to start the bike.

    ... or you can take out the battery and charge at home/shop/office. Save the money and buy a portable charger ba.

    Im sure there are other brands and such but i am personally using this which i imported
    http://www.batterytender.com/Dion/Ba...12V-0-75A.html

    You can get other brands from lim battery at bedok
    or from motorworld.

    Price ranges from $60 onwards depending on technology

    Used to have one cheap one at sim lim basement at 30$ but i last checked a year ago he said stock will come but not sure when.

    Jump starter sells at mustafa.

    No one i know offer such services. Thus always reccomended that you share one with your friends.

    If is a small manual bike, can push start. Just like push start a manual car like that.

    Here are my tips which I have tried personally:

    1. If the battery is very weak but not completely flat, just pull out the fuses for the headlight and/or any other bike accessories. Then try to start again. Without the headlight sucking power from the battery, it might have enough juice to start the bike. I tried this myself and it worked for me. Then just lightly rev the engine for 10-15 mins or take it for a short ride (making sure that the fuses you remove did not disable anything important) to charge the battery.

    2. If you know someone with a car, you can jumpstart the bike with a car batt. Do not start the car. The car's battery is more than strong enough to jump start your bike without starting the car. Starting the car can fry your bike's wiring.

    3. Remove the battery from the bike, bring it home and charge it with a 9V battery charger. I bought one from the Sim Lim Square basement battery shop for $30+, and have already used it twice. Great stuff.

    4. Use a portable jumpstart kit. I just ordered one from Qoo10 for $50. You might want to give that a try. This also doubles as a massive powerbank, so it's quite handy even when not used for jumpstarting.
