How To Charge A Side Post Battery

Charging a side post battery is a crucial part of any DJ set. By using this battery type, DJs can control their equipment without having to use the main controller. In this article, we will show you how to charge a side post battery, and provide some tips on how to improve your performance when using them.

What is a Side Post Battery?

A side post battery is a type of battery that is installed on a bike, motorbike, or other vehicle to provide power for accessories such as lights, horns, and turn signals. They are also known as “drum batteries”. Side post batteries are typically smaller and less powerful than standard lead-acid batteries, but they are more convenient to install and remove.

How to Charge a Side Post Battery

There are two ways to charge a side post battery: using the included cable or using an external charger.

To use the included cable, plug the included cable into an electrical outlet and connect it to the side post battery. The side post battery will automatically start charging.

To use an external charger, connect the external charger to an electrical outlet and connect it to the side post battery. The side post battery will then start charging from the external charger.

How to Discharge a Side Post Battery

There are a few ways to discharge a side post battery. You can drain the battery by connecting the posts to a power supply and turning it on, or you can disconnect the posts and take the battery down in stages. If the battery is swollen, it may not be able to hold its charge for long periods of time and may need to be discharged slowly.


If you’re anything like us, you probably have a ton of devices that need to be charged from time to time. Luckily, charging side posts is easy and can be done in just a few minutes. Here are the steps: 1) Find the side post that needs to be charged. It will likely be marked with a battery symbol or have some other indication that it is for charging purposes. 2) Unplug your charger from the wall and plug it into the side post. Make sure the polarity is correct (the red and black wires should match up when plugged in). 3) Plug your charger into an outlet and wait for it to light up green indicating that it is ready to charge your device. 4) Place your device on top of the charging post so that its connector goes into the port on the side post (it should now look like this). 5) Put your charger cover back on so that no one sees what you’re doing!
