Can I use a twelve volt slow charger to recharge an 8 volt battery?

John, Voltage is one factor that determines current (amperage) flow. The 12 volt charger will try to bring battery voltage up at once (causing max current or amperage the charger can produce) So, to answer your question, I would not try it unless I placed something in series between the battery and charger (one lead direct to battery and the other passing through something) to limit the current flow. Some 12 volt device like a headlight (it may not even glow). Then only current passing through the light will go to the battery. Hooked up this way, after the battery is fully charged, it would continue to take a charge, if you don't unhook. Be careful.

I charge my 8 volt battery by setting the charger to 6 volts. A little slow but safe. Best thing is to have a charger with an 8 volt setting. They do exist, but I don't have one either. I would not recommend 12 volt charging.
