Silverline 12v 24v Car Battery Charger. 12A. £28 Tesco Direct

Found 13th Oct 2016
Tesco Direct online selling Silver line Car Battery Charger. 12v 24v 12Amp. A decent piece of kit for the price. A 41% price drop. 3 year warranty. Best price I could find online by far and with tesco points to use also, made it a no brainer.

Limited stock. Winter is coming.


Picked up from my local Tesco today and was surprised by it's size and weight, and out of the box looks well built and substantial with the connectors of better quality than those in the picture. HOWEVER, looking at the outer carton revealed this charger is for batteries between 100ah-240ah with a charging rate of 26A and more suited to van/truck size batteries than for normal car size batteries and is not as advertised on the website as having a charge rate of 12A therefore may have to return. CHECK.

OK. The model number for the charger I received is 178555 and on every other website this is apparently suitable for batteries between 20ah and 240ah so I'm still not sure if I should keep or not, although none of them mention a 26A rate.
Have emailed Silver line and still await a reply.

Good find op thanks.
Mixed reviews, good and bad, for this price worth it. Someone's review mentions the fuses blow and are of a non standard type which is a shame.
