I've had a couple of these for a few years now and they're great and loads cheaper than alot of the others and come with a 3 year guarentee. nod

Says its for cars but it has a motorbike setting too.

Mine are left connected all winter and maintain the charge.

If anybody is struggling to get one I bought one a couple of weeks back at 13.99. It's charged my bike battery no problem but won't charge a leisure battery so I'm gonna have to get an optimate at some point. I can post it on for what I paid if anyone is interested. I'll keep hold if not, it is a nifty charger to have around. Cheers.

Oh, I don't know much about electrics. Should it charge them? I've tried it on two, both of which are 85ah and it won't charge either. I've also tried it on a truck battery with the same result. Although I must admit all three batteries are very close to the end.

Perhaps it's faulty?

If not, I might have someone who is interested.

PM if you like.
