About this deal

The Draper 53491 is a powerful, reliable portable 10A smart charger that does more than just charge 6V and 12V vehicle batteries. It has the ability to activate, analyse and recondition the battery in 10-steps, making it ideal for deeply discharged batteries. The charger can be connected to a Lead-Acid or Lithium battery for a long duration without the risk of overcharging. It can also be used in winter temperatures as low as -20°C. It is easy to use and a cost-effective solution to keep batteries in good condition all year round. Features: Again, the Genius5 works well with really desperate batteries, automatically detecting those with as little as 1 volt charge left and giving the option of forcing current into even more dilapidated ones.

Finally, you’ll want to consider the maximum current the charger can support (the higher the current, the faster the charge) and what IP (ingress protection) rating it has. This basically tells you how dust- and waterproof the device and device casing is. For instance, IP68 is a great rating: it’s a completely sealed unit that can tolerate being submerged in up to one metre of water. IP44 can protect against dust particles bigger than 1mm and a light splash of water. Can’t I just replace my car battery?Please note some larger products are delivered to kerb-side (the street outside your home), it is at the drivers discretion if they can deliver the item to another location on the property.

It also goes beyond others when dealing with poorly batteries. It'll automatically charge batteries reduced to 1 volt of internal charge, while "force" mode attempts to charge batteries in even more dire states. It's a tribute to CTEK, below in sixth position overall, that the brand's format is so widely emulated, Clarke's 8 Amp CB09-12 being a prime example.

We suspect the ultra-keen price is partly because of its old-school styling and layout. The vented case rules out usage outside, and the usually de rigueur hard-wired lead isn't included.

That’s because a “flat battery” usually has plenty of reserve power, even it its voltage has dropped too low to power automotive components.Can be connected to a Lead-Acid or Lithium battery for a long duration without the risk of overcharging Please be aware that we currently cannot arrange for delivery of this product to the following postcodes: AB, FK, HS, IV, KA, KW, PA, PH, ZE, LL58-LL78, IM, TR, BT, PO30-41. At 6Ah, the internal battery has less stamina than many here, but that's only a problem if you intend many starting attempts between charges.
