Does anyone use these?

I'd have thought that if your battery was in need of a regular charge, then it's time to get a new one.

Just wondering who might have use for such?

Cheers, Dio

By the way, I'm not making a comment on the price or the deal which I think is good - just a genuine query.

Dio :- this is handy if the battery goes flat @ home or where you have access to mains power.

Fair enough; when I was a kid we had a huge battery charger and used to have to top up the battery with de-ionised water; just didn't realise that it was still happening

There are loads of people who have forgotten to switch lights off,left radio on etc.
Also,if you haven't used the car for a few months.
Always been driving at night in the winter and not in the day.
All runs the battery down.
That's when you need one of these.
Also...if you ever use one of those kettles from the cigarette lighter socket in the car make sure you have the engine running!!

Handy for anyone like me whos left the coolbox running in the boot overnight!!!

Good price for a unit of this power. No reason why you cant use it for larger batteries on diesels. Itll just need longer to charge

For a mere £8 more this would surely be the better buy.

They are giving a £7 saving instead of an £8 saving on RRP.

Much more power and better features.

You can get a car battery charger instore at wilkinsons for £9.50. They're the same ones that are in tescos for about £15.

Rizla01 POWER IS NOT what is needed when charging car batteries. More power in a short space of time helps destroy you car battery and chances are it will start holding less charge. The best way to charge a battery is to trickle charge it all night long. The only advantage of these models from Argos over the wilkinsons one is that if you really need to get on the road in the next 30 minutes, these will give the battery enough juice quickly enough to get you going. But given the choice I would go for the second one as it offers a more gentle trickle charge option too whereas the first one doesn't.

Fair enough; hadn't thought of all that. I just use the car for commuting and as long as it does that reliably, I'm happy. It'll be due its first MOT in September so time to look for a replacement soon anyway.

Cheers, Dio :thumbsup:

I need a new one having had to borrow a charger for the ride on lawnmower battery and the the caravan leisure battery.

Thanks to anewman I'll be getting one from Wilkinson's - assume this does both 6v and 12v?

Just got the one from Wilkinsons for £9.50. It's a 4amp one that charges 12v car and motorbike batteries - no 6 volt option.
