If sealed acid type then it requires a trickle charge if not used.
If like laptop type Then some have a memory so require to be run down others it dont matter.
I am not up to date with the technology but I would google the battery type (serial number / make) to be sure, I don't trust anything they sell me in Turkey.
with these type of batteries they should NEVER
be run down until they are flat/dead as it harms the batteries. And likewise although most of the chargers automatically turn off and stop charging they should not be left connected for any length of time also but I was also advised against using the likes of 7 day timers were because of any possible surges/spikes in the electric supply.
Fully charge the battery before disconnecting the battery or battery pack and it should be ok for up-to 6 months, then put back on a overnight charge when ready to use again,
I am of course talking about the dry cell batteries as used in Mobility scooters and also electric 3 wheel trik's.
