Pros: performance
Cons: short leads, small eyelets on leads
" Had a shock when I saw a picture of a motor bike on the package. I wanted the charger as a conditioner over winter for a classic car. The research I did before purchase said that it charged batteries up to 100Ah but in effect the included instructions only claim to charge batteries up to 32Ah from flat and maintain up to 100Ah when not. The eyes on the included leads would not fit my battery terminals which would indicate bike usage. However once I got over this I found performance to be excellent. Indicator lights show progression and battery status over 6 stages. "

Pros: size, ease of understanding light system, caps to cover connections
Cons: plug to unit lead just too short.

" Bought as a replacement battery conditioner. Great choice. Well built, superb quality, easy to use.
The only minor criticism is the electrical lead is short but an extension lead rectifies that.
Used mainly on bike but also sits connected to car when using bike. I do especially like the covers that fit the end of the battery connectors.
Highly recommended having used the Oxford version, this is smaller and easier to read the lights. "
