Default Using Shorai Battery Charger on Skyrich Ranger Battery

I have been using a Shorai Battery and Shorai Charger on my 2011 GG300 since 2012. Yes, eleven years later that same Shorai battery still works great. When I put the bike in the garage, I have a shorai connector coming from under the seat and just plug in into the Shorai charger. So, whenever my 2011 gasser is in the garage its hooked up the Shorai charger.

Ok, so can I use my Shorai charger that I use on my 2011 GG300 on my 2022 300 Ranger with the Skyrich Battery or do I need a Skyrich Smart Charger LIBCH01?

Default Any Input?

Does anyone know if this will work or do I need to buy the Skyrich charger? Thanks in advance!

A lithium battery will need a lithium charger.

I have yet to charge my AntiGavity Li battery. Which was installed in 2018

Thanks! I was on a trip and I had my Ranger on my all jacked up hauler on my truck. The front wheel must have been rotating and that turned on my trailtech. So,the trailtech drained my battery down, not dead, but almost. Thanks for the information.

Default BikeMaster Lithium Ion Battery Charger / Maintainer

Would this work? I read the reviews on Amazon, one guy said it worked great on his Beta.

I already bought a charger for my ranger. Just a follow up question. The Shorai is a lithium iron battery and the Skyrich is a lithium iron battery correct? Could my Shorai charger be used to charge my Skyrich (ranger) battery? Just curious?

I would assume it could. If there is a balancing plug you would have to ensure that it is compatible withe "the other" battery.

No definitive answer, but enough fires have been started using the wrong chargers I'd be very gun shy.

Different manufacturers can use different balance cctrty which makes them less tolerant than agm.
I'm pretty ignorant on the matter, but I know when I'm ignorant.
For the final word.
