    put it on a slow 2 amp charge for about 24 hours and then a 6 amp charge until the charger turns off by itself.

    if you can take it back to where you bought it they may recharge it for FREE …but call them first to make sure …… if not a 1-2 hour charge on high should bring it back ……but check the water / acid level and remove the caps before charging
