Pour the acid from the 'flute' in. Make sure it all gets in, very gently squeeze the flute if need be. Put the sealing cap on. Let it sit for 30~60 minutes. Put on a 1 amp or less charge for 24 hours. A battery tender is ideal for this.

William - Are you sure about the tender? I expect it will shut down before the voltage gets up to where it should be to activate a new battery.

shape - There should be instructions with the battery. If there is a shop close that can charge it with a Christe charger, that is the best way. If not, a slow charge long enought to get the terminal voltage up to 15 to 16 V works good.
