Car Battery Chargers

Not all car battery chargers are the same... so how do you know what to buy?

As a rule of thumb you get what you pay for... so if you got it for $40 at a discount store chances are it's about as much use as a chocolate tea pot in Australia.

On the other hand if you spent $120 and got your charger from a specialist battery outlet then chances are you bought something really good.

A little bit of technical detail

1. The most important thing your car battery charger has to do is reach exactly the right voltage during the charging cycle

If voltage is too high, your battery literally over-cooks and is useless.

If voltage is too low, your battery doesn't charge properly and it deteriorates until it gradually becomes unusable.

2. Next the voltage needs to be consistent

Voltage and current fluctuations can destroy sensitive equipment like your radio. Not good.

Traditional versus modern car battery chargers

Traditional battery chargers treat all batteries in the same way providing a steady but unregulated current to the battery.

This can easily lead to over, or under, charging of the battery and thereby decrease its lifespan. We do not recommend these traditional chargers for maintaining your car battery.

Modern car battery chargers are smart. They constantly reads and communicate with your battery so they give the right amount of charge only when it's needed. You can't boil your battery with a smart charger.
