Car battery charger, electronically controlled (also for motor cycle and boat batteries) fully automatic charging with LED indicator £12.99 at Lidl (very similar to a CTEK but at a small fraction of the price) - with 3 year warranty - available Thu
Worth a special mention of its own, rather than just included in the general Lidl posts - this is a rather special battery charger, very much like the much more expensive CTEK models, but at a fraction of the price.
Electronic, versatile and capable of dealing with problems that an ordinary charger couldn't cope with.
Buy one for the cold weather battery problems - but be early. These are likely to sell out quickly.
