Charge with a regular battery charger. Downside of this is that often these aren’t automatic and do not turn themselves off when full charge is reached. If left unattended a battery can become ’boiled dry’ from overcharging. The battery becomes extremely dangerous due to highly explosive gasses produced from charging at a high rate and the casing becoming very warm introducing a fire risk.
Car chargers are simple devices that are designed to fit into your car efficiently. They are small in size, but are of immense help. In this hectic work schedule, you never know when your mobile phone may just loose the strength and need a charge up. For all such times, the car charger comes as a very useful device that can also make a great difference to your life.
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.
