Re: "Smart" battery charger

I bought one of these. https://www.ebay.co.uk/p/9024678617 a Voche 12v 1 amp battery charger off ebay. anything similar would do the job. Very low ampage (1 amp) so basically a trickle charger/conditioner. low enough ampage that it won't cause problems if its left for days or weeks, keeps the batter...

Re: Vibration, rattle, knock.

Re: Test Drive Tomorrow
