I've had a Xantrex one for a few years now.

It's well made and has lasted well. I can leave it in the car unused for 6 months or so and it will still have a full charge when I come to use it again. It's bailed me out on more than one occasion!

Has an inverter which has come in handy at times.

Availability doesn't seem too good in the UK, think I bought mine from ebay for around 80

I have my aux setup to do this, but I also have 2 batteries, one for engine start and one to power lights and instruments. The aux only charges the services battery, unless that happens to be fully charged then it will add the engine battery. Attached is a diagram that may explain better than words.
