Avoiding A Flat Battery

Off to the airport tomorrow and leaving the RR for two weeks, wondered if it's like previous models where it'll be flat on my return Laughing

Should i stick it into service mode or would you just leave it as it is? TDV8 RRS HST in Java - Gone

It might be a bit late for you but I got one these AA solar powered battery chargers.

https://www.amazon.co.uk/AA-Solar-Powered-...ry+charger

The benefit of this one is you can leave it on the dash and it plugs into your OBD port --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

If we all point our RR's in the same direction and accelerate at the same time can we turn back time?

I use the AA solar charger when leaving my RRS at the airport and have had no problems. The nice thing about the AA charger is it plugs into the OBD port inside the car so no wires to worry about

I worried about mine when I left it for 3 weeks last year. Needn't have worried.

A bit late now, sorry, but they can be bought at Maplins for about £15. If they are still open that is.
I bought one last month for the wife's Corsa dog van which does about 4k a year.

2013 Range Rover Sport SDV6 HSE Stornoway Grey

Maplins ones work a treat - have had mine for 10 years now and my car gets left for 3-4 months at a spell,on the drive. Only since cars have had everything switch off have I had a problem with using it but in October 2017 I came back to a dead car and the LRA tech showed me how to connect up an L494 to it. I have a thread about how to connect one up without the cable being outside the car on the forum 2018 Melting Silver Mini Countryman PHEV - a test car before Seeing if I could go to totally Petrol/Diesel free motoring
