The reason that Eneloop batteries are so popular is that they seem to last forever because they have a very low self-discharge. Self-discharge means that a battery loses its power when it was not in use, even if it was continuously charging. That is why most rechargeable batteries were not sold fully charged. By the time you bought them and tried to use them, their power would already be gone.
To maintain your car battery in optimal condition, it is necessary to ensure that the electrolyte level of the battery is kept at an appropriate level; i.e. between the MIN and HIGH level markings on the battery casing. In the case of ’maintenance-free’ batteries, regular checking and topping up of electrolyte is not necessary. Besides checking the electrolyte level, the battery also requires to be recharged on a regular basis. This is especially true if the car is minimally utilised, the battery does not get to be recharged through the car’s built-in charging system. Hence, an external source, such as a portable battery charger is required.
This is particularly handy for those moments where you need to quick recharge your cellphone. Two types of this product we have in stock is the Mo-Go emergency mobile phone and the Movable Emergency Charger. The great thing about these kinds of chargers is that it only needs standard alkaline batteries to work and may be clipped away onto your key ring. Its really straightforward to use, all you need to do is plug the charger into your mobile phone and you may be able to make or receive phone calls!
It‘s compatible with a wide range of devices. For example, it‘s compatible with all generations of Apple iPads. It's also compatible with Samsung Galaxy, Google Nexus, Apple iPhones, iPods, and Samsung Galaxy Phones.
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.
