MG MGF Technical - battery charger
|Hi all, can anyone recommend a battery charger to charge a 1800cc car battery and also deliver a trickle/maintenance charge for my 1.8 VVC battery for overwintering? Cheers|
|thanks John, where do I get it?|
Think they are made by Oxford,
Most Bike shops will have them, £30ish.
Even come with lead that you leave connected all the time, just plug in when ready to charge!.
|Thanks to both.|
|B & G (Link on this BBS) do a good Coulombi Switch Mode Battery charger with either clips or you can plumb a connector in. It works excellent but remember to disconnect it when you give the engine a run.|
|Full details of Optimate are at http://www.tecmate-int.com|
Works really well, is especially good for medium - long term non-use. Battery is continually charged, discharged but always maintaining sufficient charge for alarms, radios etc
As Mark says, any decent motorcycle shop/dealer should have them. Also believe I've seen them in Halfords. Have definitely seen them in BMW bike shops.
|Sorry, meant to add that Mike Satur used to show a similar device on his site - worth a look or a phone call. He's not more than a decent drive out from you.|
