The Ctek chargers are always well recommended. I have a MXS 5.0 and it does the job. Kev

I believe you need to do the start stop battery separately as well 2015 RRS autobiography Corris Grey/Black roof

Stop/start gets charged at the same time. +1 for Ctek MXS 5

If you go up to the Ctek MXS 7.0 or 10 you can also use it as a additional power source to the vehicle or a vehicle, if you remove the battery for any reason so not to lose any memory settings etc. not that there are a lot to lose on the Sport.

Reading back through a different thread, seems you might not have the second battery but a capacitor system instead Embarassed Embarassed

I’ve used a Noco Genius 5 and it’s a charger and maintainer. Attached it to the front posts under the hood (bonnet). I believe the batteries are AGM. Works great. 2016 SCV8 Dynamic - Firenze Red/Pimento

I use an MX7 with the tow socket charging plug mentioned above which works perfectly. Take the the little tab that holds the socket to the cable off and it pops off if you drive off with it attached. I know it works!! Very Happy MY16 3.0 SDV6 Autobiography in Aleutian silver, stealth pack and toys.
