what trickle charger to get

Afternoon all,
Just wondered what people have in terms of a trickle charger for their cars or bikes.

The battery on my bike went due to lack of usage so dont want that to happen to the new one. Was thinking of getting an Optimate 3+ but just wondered what everyone else uses?

It would mainly be for trickle charging the battery as I have a Halfords battery charger already. And it would be for the bike and kitcar (when finished).

Cheers,

mads

Delay buying until Aldi or Lidl next have them in.

Get yourself a c-tek battery charger, I have one and it's great, it even recovered my bike battery 4 times, they are amazing and waterproof

As mentioned the Lidl or Aldi units tick all the right boxes for a very good price. Last time they came in on special was October so they should be coming in again soon -


Previous Aldi deal - 12.99

Normal is getting dressed in clothes that you buy for work and driving through traffic in a
car that you are still paying for - in order to get to the job you need to pay for the clothes
and the car, and the house you leave vacant all day so you can afford to live in it.

I got the same one from Lidl here in France, earlier this year. It's good.
