Fully automatic battery charger

Cracking little charger from Aldi - 'AutoXS for £12.99 with two years warranty, very impressed. Good quality cables and crocodile clips and not bulky. Keeps my boat battery happy over winter.

Had one for a few years top bit of kit they and lidl equivalent come up fairly regularly you can also buy the ctek plugs on eBay and use it just like a £70 ctek for under £30.......


Halfords online have the ctek extension for £12 and the comfort adapter for £5 some snips and heat shrink and you basically have a ctek for less than half price........

I’ve got a Lidl one & a Ctek. If the battery is very flat, the Lidl one throws an “error” & shuts down. The Ctek will have a go at charging it in “recondition” mode. Can’t fault them for sub £15 though.

Yes the ctek will recover batteries every other charger give up on and that alone can cover the £70 cost when a decent leisure battery is £100+ but being able to easily use the ctek fittings is ideal especially if you have other vehicles that need charging and these are genius especially with modern cars which can be difficult to open with a flat battery..... https://www.jgs4x4.co.uk/ctek-13-pin...daptor-da1410/
