Trickle Charger

Post by Paul7 » Sat Mar 21, 2020 4:57 pm

Hi, Iam a newbie had the Velar for 3 months and well pleased however dont do a great deal of mileage and now with corona virus it will be very little for the next 12 weeks. Therefore thinking about fitting a trickle charger which one would be suitable. I have looked at CTEK MXS5.0 and CT5 STOP/START
Any recommendations would be helpful CHEERS

I’ve used a CTEK MXS5.0 for several years on a succession of JLR Cars. I’ve found it very easy to use and most of all it has never let me down. In short, recommended!

IIRC, the official RR charger is a rebranded CTEK model. Anything above 3.5 amps should be fine for maintaining a battery.
