Battery chargers are an essential tool for every workshop, as well as for end-users who own seasonal vehicles like vintage cars, motorhomes, caravans, boats or motorcycles.
Apart from regions where cold-weather cranking is a common issue, most car owners do not possess their own charger. For owners of any vehicle that may remain inactive for prolonged periods or those that incorporate a supply battery application, a charger becomes a real necessity. There are many occasions when a battery benefits from a full charge, including just before you put your vehicle into storage for an extended period of time.
In a typical workshop environment, there might be one main workshop charger used for high-end luxury and performance sports cars. This is often supplemented by a number of portable chargers, for routine charging and preservation of power input (Power Mode) when the battery is disconnected for electrical work. Portability is important when the car is moved out of the busy workshop area after the service is complete.
