i have a cheap wal-mart charger for now. When you charge your batteries do you leave all the cables hooked up to the batteries and charge 1 battery at a time or do you unhook the cables and charge 1 battery at a time?

i charge all 8 at once cause i have a multi-charger but before i did i would disconnect 1 cable from every battery and charge 1 for like 4 hrs or so and sometimes i would charge 4 for like 2 days or so i would hook all the + and all the - and make it into 1 big 12 volt battery and charge it like normal

i would unhook and charge them single,that is gonna take a long time,i'd say u should get a multi charger,if u did hook them all together the RIGHT way it would probly burn the WAL MART charger up

so i should disconnect all the cables from the batteries and charge 1 at a time? Would it hurt to leave the cables on the batteries and charge 1 at a time that way without disconnecting the cables?
