Thanks. Does anyone know if the half-car covers are any good? My current screen one is so thin that it gets wet and freezes to the window itself.

What do people think about the little jumpstarter device. Anyone tried one?

Not very good, and not just the jump starter; you have to disconnect the battery for charging, and if the battery is really flat, neither the charger nor the jump stater will work.

I had a total flat on my wifes car, after it had been standing for over a year; the Lidl charger wouldnt do anything; I had to dig out a decrepit old-school charger and hook it up. Once the battery had been slow charged for a couple of hours, I tried the Lidl job again, and at that point it started working and charging the battery.

They are making the safety circuitry too conservative in these things nowadays.

32671182-OthLR.jpgFrom the instructions for main charger deal posted, I have last year's version which charges dead batteries.
The 10-15£ ones require a dumb charger first.

Sorry didn't make myself very clear. It was the power bank jump starter on the second page I was wondering about. Thanks

I think this is the same product, download the instructions, if it doesn't do what it says it is guaranteed 3 years.

CTEK make the best battery chargers. Amazing how small they are these days.

Can you show me a ctek equivalent of this one?

Ctek Mxs5 wshould be enough for most,otherwise mxs 10 version for bigger batteries 200-300 maintenance charge. All ctek charges have minimum 2v battery voltage requirement.

So you are comparing a 5 amp ctek charger to this one, Or a £100+ 10 amp one. Neither of which will start your car.
Neither are a comparison, this will charge at 6a 12a and 75amp.
For most people the Aldi/lidl £13-£15 ones are fine.

I have last years model, and I also had the years befores; I had the same issue with both; plus the year befores wouldnt charge the battery until it was disconnected from the car.

I used to love the quality DIY tools Lidl sold, but sometime around 3-4 years ago, it started turning to tat; there are still good products, but more and more are not.

I've bought 7 of their 20v+ tool range this year, can't fault them.

I am not saying EVERy product is bad, the battery drill-drivers are very good; and many other products are also very good; but the number of poor or downright horrible products is growing.

Example#1 2 of the 4 LED GU11 lights I bought are dead, one as soon as it was plugged in, the other only a couple of weeks later.

Example #2 The keyless chuck corded drill I bought, the chuck wouldnt stay tight and kept coming loose.

Example #3 The electric scraper; the release failed after a couple of weeks and it became impossible to change bits.

Those are just a few of the failures I have experienced over the last 12 months; prior to that, I had had only one thing not up to scratch, a car stereo where the SD card read broke after a few weeks use.

ring are better than ctek as the charge 24/7 and fry the battery, ring turn on and off
