Halfords battery charger

Any good at half price?... 20 seems like a bargain to me

It's just to keep the battery conditioned over the winter, I'm also looking at buying a gel battery in the future. Would this not be suitable then?

I'll have a look at the C-Tek stuff then, thanks

I don't know about how good this one is, but I've had a C-Tek for 5+ years and it is spot on.

I have a Halfords one although not that model. It does sealed race batteries and traditional lead acid and can be used to maintain batteries. Been happy with mine, heard good things about C-Tek though.

I paid 3 for a halfords battery charger. It's amazing, and it's the same age as my S1! lol

Just ordered the C-Tek 3.6 from an Amazon lightning deal. 36 delivered, can't argue with that!

Should do the job nicely, thanks guys.
