I brought one of these from woolworths (yes) for £25 4 years ago , brilliant charger , well made and good quality , might be worth having a look in now alworths .

Bought something similar on Maplin for £20, same thing is £50 in halfords in a different coloured moulding but the same components.

I got mine from a local store this time last year for £14.99, shop around.

The above is a CHARGER not a JUMPER - If you want a JUMPER see hotukdeals.com/dea…754

good point well made! oops

All my vehicles for the last 35yrs have had Alternators fitted which have recharged the Battery automatically.
I can't see what purpose these serve

Because in winter the battery can become flat overnight.
Or maybe you one day accidently leave your lights on or something.

If someone leaves lights on or cold weather causes a problem you might need it. Currently I have an issue with my car which might be caused by short journeys (ie not enough getting back into the battery after the drain of starting a car) and the cold weather.

Currently my cars on a trickle charge to get it back up. Chargers like this can also be used to fast charge which will get you started if the battery is partially flat.

I don't usually have an issue but this winter both mine and my girlfriends car have had problems. Also the jump starter I got from Maplins wouldn't start my car when one of these style things did. Sadly these don't help if ya stranded with no mains.

Just because you haven't had a problem doesn't mean everyone doesn't otherwise these things wouldn't be on the market.

Indeed starting a car when it's -13c isn't as easy for a battery than starting when it's warmer. A good product to have even if your battery appears to be ok, although the price is pretty steep given what folks on here have said.

Not really I have never had a problem starting a car fitted with an alternator.
All my cars have had a switch to turn off the lights which are also visible to most people with normal eyesight.
Obviously you are an exception

Someone obviously got an extra large bottle of Obnoxiousness for Xmas.
