Battery maintainer

Post by basel » Mon Mar 16, 2020 1:48 pm

Here in northern Italy, to contain the epidemic of the corona virus, the total block was ordered; I therefore parked my Velar in a box connected to a voltage maintainer. Those few allowed movements I will do with my second car.


[OT] Allow me to suggest you not to wait for the official interventions but to prepare in time with safety precautions ... here the situation is really serious

Good advice. The Velar will use up a battery pretty quickly if not driven. If you are in quarantine, at least lock your car as an unlocked Velar is using the battery more than a locked one. My annotations to the official instructions for installing the JLR charger are here:

If you don't want to tackle this, then any trickle charger will work and can be connected under the hood (the battery is in the boot, but there are posts for jump starting and trickle charging under the hood).

Stay safe.
