Could anyone give me some info on mains type battery chargers.
What would be the minimum amps. Are there any particular brands that people have found to be good or bad. Are there any features on a charger to look for.
Thanks

The Boat and Caravan Accessories Website has a huge amount of info on batteries and chargers. I bought a LEAB Champ 8 amp charger from them - very good investment. It's waterproof and will work from 170-260 volts input.

A 3 stage charger is always a better option than a standard transformer type charger, but you pay for it. As I own 3 deep cycles, it's cheaper for me to spend a few hundred on a good charger than on replacing batteries due to a cheap charger.

Dazza what do you want to use the battery charger for?

Do you want to regularly use it, or occassional use.

I have a Arlec 12 that I have not used for must be 10 years. You just don't need battery chargers like you used to.
