Overwhelingly positively reviewed, I fancied one of these to replace the cheapie 'smart' charger I had that died but hesitated at the price.
This is the best price I've seen by about a tenner.

Average decent make batteries start at £50 upwards,how could you buy two.

Its been a life saver with the recent cold snap as I rarely drive my cars these days. After 3 weeks of my car being sat there the battery was dead. I plugged the charger to my car on a full recond charge and after 16 hours it was like new again. Now I tend to hook it up every two weeks and it only takes a couple of hours and then it drops into float mode where it just monitors the battery.If you don't drive much and you suffer from flat batteries often, this could be your solution. It's working well for me. My battery is about 3 years old and my car is 2006 BMW 330i for reference.


Great it works for you, but you could get (when available) a Lidl/Aldi charger for approx £13. It would do the same thing in this case. Not a criticism of this deal, and I know I'll be told the ctek can bring a battery back from the dead. But if all that's needed is an occasional charge or constant trickle charger the cheap ones do the job.

Don't buy them from Halfords. Don't be taken in by the expensive = decent BS.

What car are you driving??

Both our cars run AGM batteries which are £130+ and then need recoding at the dealers, that totals £295 per battery.

Thes Cteks are brilliant. Had one for years

Try Bosch platinum batteries. My battery is 6 years old and can leave car for over a month and always starts ok. Famous last words 😏

They all are genuine china where did you think they all come from?


That’s correct, everything that comes from China is 100% genuine, that’s a relief, I was beginning to think my 10 pound cartier gold watch from China might not be the real thing, phew

Doh! repaired one a few years ago that was only 3 years old, could have sent it back to the manufacturer instead.
