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

NewboldNewbold

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.

    You might need to enter a postcode to view the charger. Worth a look, though - these are really quite exceptional and a steal at the price. There's nothing else like it on the market at anywhere near this price.

    I bought one to replace my old charger when it wouldn't charge my Bike battery, this also wouldn't charge it nor would the one I bought to replace this one. Turns out most chargers won't charge when the battery output falls below 4 volts I think it is. If your battery is completely dead this won't charge it (I have since borrowed a more expensive battery charger which done the job). Seems pretty good from the manual though

    I would say yes, but I only ever borrowed a CTEK, I own this one, it is fantastic

    Best £13 I have spent in a long while.(_;)

    i have two which keep my two motorbikes on constant charge in my garage, as ive got through a few batterys by not keeping them optimised..

    so, are these things like 'trickle' charges which you plug into say eg. mobility scooter to ensure the battery never dies and is always kept topped up?

    Exactly - it can be left charging indefinitely.

    battery on my bike was flat the other week so put this on to charge it. it started charging ok but then got to where it thought the battery was charged and stopped. i fitted the battery back on the bike and it was not charged enough to turn the engine once let alone start it. i tried 3 times and in the end used another `non-intelligent` charger which worked fine.

    Used this to trickle charge a bike battery and to re-charge a flat car battery. One thing to be aware of - it took about 10 minutes for it to start charging the car battery (no indicator lights) so at first thought the charger was knackered.....
