Heads up Lidl Car Stuff...

I can recommend the battery charger - bought one a few years ago and it's been a really handy thing to have.
 
Does anyone know if the battery charger is like a ctek maintenance charger, can it be left connected permanently ?
 
The torch looks good - £7.99, aluminium body and including batteries!

Yes, I have used one through the winter months for a couple of years now.
 
Axel stands for me too that wheel refurb is getting closer now!
Thanks for the heads up.

Tony.

3 year warranty too, looks like great value!
 
Those battery chargers are very good and excellent value.

I have used one for a couple of years and it's been great.

Only point of note - if you have a very heavily discharged battery then it may not cope unless you trick it first - I had an almost dead 12v battery and IIRC it either thought it was a 6v motorbike battery or would not charge. I managed to connect in parallel another 12v battery for a few minutes until it started to charge and then it worked as you'd expect.

Just in time for winter - well worth the money if you haven't got one :thumb:
 
+1 on the charger. Bought one 2 years ago.
Although I have a big snap on battery charger, this does the job for a fraction of the price if you trick it as will suggests. It's slow to charge a discharged battery but it's perfect for maintaining batteries!
3 modes IIRC, 6V charge, 12V charge and "winter" i.e. maintain.
I usually cycle it between my motorbike and the CL, neither of which see the road much or at all during the winter months.
 
I already have a CTEK (which cost £40), just bought one as a back up..at that price looks a steal

PS. when I told my bro-in-law about it he wanted one too...so ended up buying another lol
 
I managed to get the Trolley Jack and Axle stands yesterday and changed my first wheel today :) Thanks for the headsup IanA2.
 
Another big thanks
I have always missed getting the charger, but I managed to get one this time.
Will put it to good use over the winter on the bike.
 
The roof bars I have just bought from lidl fit my 210 estate perfectly , I don't intend to carry mega loads but am moving house at the moment so good timing lidl.
 
I too have the almost identical Ctek RRP £40 i paid £30 in a deal buying a battery - i also just bought the Lidl variety as back up - They are quickly snapped up at many stores went to Openshaw Manchester SOLD out went to Broadway Manchester and they had a dozen but had sold out of Handy windscreen cleaning wands.
