Thank you very much for that edi :)

Been trying to figure out for ages how to do that !
#3
Reserved one and picked it up today. Very pleased with it. Thanks.

Im going to get one of these as my battery went flat on me a couple days ago when i left my lights on. I asuming that this has its own internal battery that works of its own accord. I mean I dont need to plug it ito the cigerette lighter to use do I.

Also another quick question, this should be alright to use on a peugeot 206 battery shouldnt it ?

I nearly went for this last time but instead went for:

http://www.toolstation.com/index.html?code=60674

£10, replacable fuses, nicely built, not a cheap plastic covering, 12 or 24v, boost options etc

And I ordered other bits and pieces on £40 so free delivery.

No good for me... I haven't got a heavy duty car! :whistling:
#7
I'm curious that a battery charger can even be called heavy duty on only 11A and not 24v

Toolstation one superior tbh.

It sounds like your after a jump starter rather than a battery charger. What the OP has posted about plugs into the mains to re-charge the battery. I know what your after though and theres a good value one at Argos at the moment in their sale. Give me a minute and I'll dig you up a link.

oh, so I might be better off getting that one for £12.

One thing I just want to be aware of is how do these battery chargers work. or should I say how are they charged ?

Do you charge them at home by a plug socket ? or do they charge themselves like car batterys ?


Edit:

thanks lordrobs for your posting, ok so I was on the wrong track..lol So the compressor thing you posted should be okay to use for jump starting. It dosent look like it comes with jump leads ? I guess I will buy those seperately and then attach to this unit to use for a jump start if necessary. Its good I can also pump up my tryes to the correct pressure with it too.

crocodile clips clamp straight onto the battery under the bonnet....

you have to disconnect the car live red wire from the battery or you damage the alternator

only the pricey battery charges have battery % indicators, but 8hours should do it

Battery chargers come with instructions.

Also disconnecting battery from the car might reset the immobiliser and radio depending on model etc.

But i only locked it via key, keeping the immobiliser off and i took the radio face plate off before doing it, so all i had to do was reenter the radio details when it was done.

Not turning off the immobiliser might need you to enter codes via a device possibly? and the radio codes might be needed if you don;t take the face plate off.
That was my assumption, which worked on this car (S reg corolla)

I had to do this recently for a family old banger that wasn;t used much.
I was lucky with the weather and space in the garage, it's not stuff i would want to leave to chance with the weather.

Later I will google it but right now I aint got the time & just asking incase somebody knows ofhand.

thanks for the link but there is none available in the "collect at store" option for any of the 10 argos's it gives me in the list. hmm let me think if I should pay the extra 4.95 for delivery

I beleive you can purchase one of these with an air compressor built into it as well as a torch and other handy items.
Far more useful than just a battery charger. I have one and it will pump tyres as well as jumpstart from its internal battery.
#17
definatly going to get one my batterys been going dead loads recently cheers for this.
#18
Most compressors are have jump start/torch/compressor functions, but will not charge a battery over time.

Some can be chargers as well but those are combo ones which are rare and pricey.

I bought the Toolstation £10 charger and the £13 RAC compressor/jump starter because for £23 I got all what you describe tenrhole in a device that costs £40+ elsewhere, convenience is not worth doubling the price, and the compressor is light can can stay in the car, battery chargers are heavy and you don;t need to be lugging it about.

:oops: I wonder if you guys can help me - I have one of these 12v compressors I bought from Halfords a while ago, the kind that you have to plug into your cigarette jack for it to work but the 12v jack is broken and i dont know where or how to get a replacement jack.

I dont really want to buy a new one when i am a 100% sure it works, if only i can replace the broken 12v jack! :-(

Any help or comment, will be greatly appreciated!

Thanx!
