This could be a very useful purchase for the other-side of lockdown - for all of those car batteries which will have run down and the hassle of jump/bump starting.

Was on Amazon yesterday though all sold out now. Has been slightly cheaper in the past though demand is of course much higher currently.

Available for collection from certain Argos stores that remain open (typically the ones within Sainsbury's). Please don't make the journey especially to collect this. Consider delivery (£3.95) or combine it with an essential weekly shop.

Doesn't mention what its current output is - always be cautious when this is not mentioned as bound to be very low

This 8 Amp charger from amazon seems a much better buy for your £30

Here the current output is mentioned - though I agree is much lower than the 8A one you've shared. That one looks good, not sure if that is start/stop compatible (and also I don't think HUKD would allow that to be posted as a deal as the seller only as 183 ratings!)

1 amp is fine for trickle charging! That’s the point of this, it’s a trickle charger not an instant charger (though to clarify I agree the Amazon one you’ve shared does look good)

But that's the thing with these smart chargers, if it recognises that the battery is almost fully charged, it will switch to a lower current trickle charge automatically.
When it senses the battery is almost flat, it switched into a charging mode suitable for the battery and is able to deliver up to its max output - 8A in the model I linked to, but only 1A in this deal.

I might also mention that I'm an auto electrician, and would NEVER consider buying a charger under 3 Amps - even if was under a tenner.

I would also add that it would always be safer to charge the battery off the car, or at least with one of the terminals removed / isolated.

Funny you should say that mine is flat I've ordered a charger and I've read all different things. I was going to lift mine out and then noticed this box above the positive terminal with fuses etc. To save any bother can I just disconnect the negative and stick charger positive to battery positive and the charger negative to the car earth?

Another thing I've read you can jump start an agm battery and read that you can't or at least shouldn't...what's the truth?

Yes, just disconnecting one of the terminals should be fine - but don't as you mention "stick charger neg to car earth", rather attach it to the battery Neg terminal
Personally, I've never heard anything about not jumping agm types - Just do it

Here's the correct procedure RAC Style

Fakespot reviews doesn't rate this very highly as the 5 stars amazon currently shows for it
AA will put their name on any old Chinese tat it seems. Strange really.
As long as it charges your battery does it really matter......speedis not essential when charging these types of battery, its a decent enough deal
Stop nit picking
