This battery charger does all the important things

Well made, steel case, external fuse, simple controls. The only thing missing is an on / off switch.

A good little unit.

I bought this to replace a rubbish 'Challenge' example and it's a nice little unit, metal cased, with trickle and fast charge options. It also has an analogue meter which, to myself anyway, is better than a string of LEDs. I would advise reading the instructions fully before first use as otherwise the meter reading can be confusing when a discharged battery is first connected. On the fast charge setting, the unit buzzes quite loudly but this is not a fault so nothing to worry about.

Any good with a leisure battery?

Hi. I need a charger to charge and maintain a 110ah caravan leisure battery, and am wondering if anyone out there uses one of these chargers for this purpose. Thanks in advance

This charger is perfect Hugh! Use it myself for exactly the same reason. Set it up on the trickle charge setting and leave it connected for 24hrs and you'll be back on the road. Happy camping!

How do you charge the unit?

1 Answer

Hi Joanie

The unit runs off mains electric so you do not need to charge it up. Remove the battery from the car that you wish to charge, attach to the charger, plug into the mains and away you go.

Have a nice day.
