This is one of the reasons why normal rechargeable triple-A batteries got a bad name. They had to be continuously recharged, and even then you weren‘t guaranteed they would work very long because they discharged so quickly. On top of that, if you charged the batteries without them being completely dead, you drained its ability to recharge.
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.
If you need to be able to recharge your mobile phone while you are in the car, you need a car charger or as they are sometimes identified, an in-car charger. This unit will plug into your in car cigarette lighter and charge your phone in a similar way as a mains mobile phone charger. You can either purchase genuine manufacturers merchandises or third party wares, such as the Pama range, at more competitory prices.
Trickle charging. This is where the charging device provides the connected battery a low steady charge. Drawback of this method is that these will only give out a constant low charge which is often not enough to keep a battery above the critical voltage of 12.4 volts. In essence they may maintain a good battery but not recharge it if the voltage level becomes too low.
Imagine there is very little power left in your mobile battery and you may receive a very important call from home, from your children, from your clients or office or anywhere. Due to lack of battery strength you can not speak for a longer time or the moment you attend the call, the mobile phone gets switched off due to lack of battery back up.
