Rated 4 out of 5 by Small but great product This battery charger is the perfect size to leave in the back of the car. A small but powerful product with all the right features that includes battery failure indicator. 23 July 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Easy to use& portible 30 June 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by 12volt Smart Car Battery Charger I bought this for my caravan as the built-in charger is not suitable for long term charging. An excellent purchase as it monitors the battery and returns from standby to ensure battery is maintained fully charged at all times- essential for caravans fitted with movers and pro-active alarms. I disconnect the caravan built-in charger whilst this Smart Charger is connected. 02 June 2015

I do not wish to remove the battery for charging because it's a difficult procedure and I'd lose radio programming and various other services.

Answer: 
No, as per the instructions you must disconnect the battery terminals from the vehicle.
You would not loose the set channels on your radio all you will need to do is enter the radio code when you reconnect the battery.

Answer: 
Hello there,

After speaking with the manufacturer I have had confirmation that it cannot be used with a non-sinusoidal 230v supply.

I hope this helps,
Thank you for using Argos Q&A
