It's a ctec 5.0 as I recall. I needed something with capacity for my van.any idea what model ctec? they do a variety
the problem with my existing charger is when the battery is completely dead (ie reading 2 volts) it wont revive it.
The optimate 4 can charge from flat as a fart or moniter,when you connect them to your battery regardless of there charge they run the battery through a set of tests,then charge it to the correct level and maintain it.I was under the impression the optimate type chargers are only used to keep the battery topped up and are connected all the time to the bike when it is parked up rather than charging the battery from a discharged condition is this correct or can they handle the load drawn by a discharged battery
Putting a dead BIG battery on an old type charger will probably be ok but on a small bike battery it would most likely damage it.I have a couple of cheap as chops Aldi chargers that do 6v as well as 12v. They seem to perform as well as my CTECs.
If I have a battery that won't play ball I give it 10 minutes on an old transformer charger. I then introduce it to the Aldi or CTEC an usually get good results.
I am always faffing with batteries. Some kit (plant) I have is only used for short period as and lays idle for sometimes quite a while so batteries suffer. This tactic works on them (mostly).
I have this too for occasional use, works well and digital display is beneficial.I got an Oxford Optimiser 600, its been really good and for less than £30, its a good price too.

The 900 model is supposed to be good as well - Think its a bit more money.
