Original price was £16 then its been £8 for a couple of weeks now a bargain £4, won't be much stock left but worth a look
Heat added
Great price, even for an 'old fashioned' charger but do make sure it's OK for your car or you could end up with a VERY expensive problem (four figures for an ECU!). Modern cars full of electronics don't like having a hefty current pumped into them. Safest to disconnect the battery first, though that can have issues too (eg make sure you have your radio code!).

Smart trickle chargers are regularly available at Aldi, Lidl, etc. for under £15. Probably more useful for most people these days.

I second what this person said, but this device may help if the battery is under 10.5V. Most smart chargers won't charge the battery if this voltage is detected. Mind you if your battery is under 10.5V it prob needs replacing completely.

Shouldn't cause any issues, this is only 4amps.it should reduce the charge to a trickle once the battery is charged too, though best to turn it off once charged. I've found that smart chargers sometimes don't put enough charge into the battery and cut off too early.
I wouldn't disconnect the battery what charging, that can cause more issues.
Worth it for £4, can also be used as a 12 v supply, ie use mine for connecting up the airpump for blowing up the airbed or paddling pool.
