Lidl smart battery charger

Recommended Posts

This week in Lidl.... is a 6/12V smart battery charger for just £13.99 and with a 3 year guarantee. It has modes for de-sulphation, quick charge to 80% and trickle, just like the excellent Ctek chargers. I have one of the latter, but have bought one of the Lidl ones as well. It says its suitable for batteries up to 120Ah. Leads look a decent length. Will see how it performs..

I bought an Ultimate Speed charger from Lidl a couple of years back, and it's been good. This one looks a bit more hi-tech.

Mine packed up after 3 months. Possibly me Renault Master is too big for it ?

Couldn't find the receipt so cannot take it back.

Worked fine with Freelander and Astra though

I gotthe similar looking one from Aldi last week, £12.99

Very impressed so far - has a setting for AGM batteries and it managed to fully revive a completely nailed battery I had in the scrap pile.

Got the Aldi equivalent, can't fault it for the pennies it cost, even worked after it got left out in the rain (don't ask, was having a blonde moment).

Learned ones in the way of electrickery,

For ease of use could one make permanently connected flyleads for one of these chargers with perhaps an econoseal connector for easy connection in the manner of the Ctek remote connectors ?

Would it be ok to charge with the main live and earth terminals still connected ?

Just thinking of easy daily maintenance charging of the deep cycle battery on mains hook up whilst camping.

Cheers Scott, that's a plan then 😊

I was kinda assuming the same as @Anderzander.....

 

Ctek provide the fly-leads which suggests they don't expect you to isolate the battery !!

I'd have a go Mo and get a friendly man with a yellow van to check the battery status now and after several sessions on the charger...
