CTEK CHARGER Group Buy

Over on Disco3 is a GB for CTEK chargers

Thought it might be of interest to some on here

http://www.disco3.co.uk/forum/topic101098.html

Would have to join up Disco3 to add your name, hopefully won't mind me spreading the word

I have a MXS10 and it's not let me down

those towing electric connectors look a great piece of kit, save popping the bonnet for the fast plug under there

Will be buying one when the new cars ordered as the electrics will be 13 pin then

I looked into the idea of keeping the sport in garage during winter when I had the FL1 but reading the small print I thought we're supposed to disconnect the battery when using any form of charger to protect the sensitive systems so abandoned the idea and just made sure to run it occasionally Confused

I was also advised by a neighbour (marine engineer) that he kept his motorbikes topped up over winter and found the batteries did not last long Sad

That's good news - I wish I'd known this before but will look into buying one now as I may be using my sport less over winter and would like piece of mind - last thing I need is a flat battery and no emergency key access because I park tight to wall Thumbs Up

I am signing up but would appreciate some advice Bow down

Ctek recommend 7.0 for SUV but many have signed up for 5.0 - I tend to leave RRS in garage all week and use mainly weekends but may be less in winter. So as I understand it - the lower the rating the longer it takes to charge therefore my case would suit the lower rated unit Confused
