How long does it take to charge a car battery with a 10 amp charger?

My car died yesterday in my driveway. My neighbor was outside at the time and offered to let me use her charger. I’ve never used one before, so I’m wondering: how fast will a 10 amp charger charge my car battery?

Answer
I’m glad to hear that your neighbor was able to extend a helping hand in this situation!
Typically, a 10 amp battery charger will take approximately four to 11 hours to fully charge your car’s battery. However, you don’t have to fully charge the battery in order to start the car.
While you wait, you should consider reviewing your car insurance—you could be missing out on big savings! It’s a good idea to shop around for car insurance quotes every six months in order to be sure that you’re never overpaying for your premium. Of course, this can be a time-consuming process, so leave the hard work to Jerry.
