With a solar trickle charger you won‘t have to worry about the batteries going dead, as you can simply put the unit in a window and use the alligator clips to keep your battery charged all winter long, without wasting mains electricity.
Battery conditioners. At Windrush Car Storage we connect all vehicles to a battery conditioner. These are fully automatic battery chargers, which monitor, charge and maintain the battery without the risk of overcharging. These can be left switched on and connected for long periods of time (years) without the risk of gassing or overheating. Simply the best of both of the above.
When planning to not use your vehicle for extended periods, checking and boosting every 30 - 60 days is simply not enough to guarantee your battery will not self-discharge to a critical level. This 'under charging‘ results in ‘sulphation‘ if the battery voltage is allowed to drop and remain below 12.4 volts. This sulphation is the hardening of the lead plates within the battery and it reduces the battery‘s ability to accept or hold a charge. This is where we would then recommend the use of a charger to maintain the charge in a battery.
Luckily, the charging operations have become much easier than they once were. Nearly every car has a 12 volt battery, and so do marine batteries and power sporting equipment. You must use a battery charger that is correct for your battery to extend its life and save money in the long run. If you fail to use the kind of charger that is suggested by your battery manufacturer, the warranty you have on your lead acid battery, AGM, or gel cell may be null and void. Using an improper charger can destroy your battery.
If you anticipate to having a quality car battery charger, you should also expect that other people would have tried and have a positive comment over the quality of the product.
