Before I swapped to Lithium, the Optimate 4 regularly recovered/topped up my Battery and did it very well. I've had it for more than 10 years maybe and never a bother. Even used it to recover a mates golf cart battery that couldnt be charged using it actual charger.
Alternatively, I think Lidl/Aldi have their charger coming up soon and it would work very well as a trickle jobbie. A lot cheaper too

Re: Battery charger

I got Oxford Oximiser 888 for €19 from fc-moto a week ago. Usual price 30. But when you are buying something else they advertise it for 20 plus extra discount currently 10% so it could be had for a nice price of €16...

Re: Battery charger

Optimate is a great job Canbus compatible too. You can also get an adapter lead for it to convert the optimate fused charge cable that's connected to the battery into a 12V aux cigar socket for charging stuff on the go. dandy
