"Have not bought a battery charger for 30 years. Had to give Old Faithful to my daughter after a bit of trouble with her car. So looked for a replacement. Needed one that would cope with my diesel battery, and would not damage the car instruments. Read an Autocar review of this product that cited quality and speed of charging. On purchase read instructions and they said 'low ripple' effect would mean good instrument protection, though Autocar had wondered about the impact of a 'deep recovery' charge ie charging at maximum setting at low temperature. It is about a sixth the size of my old charger and this gives more options about where to put it when in use. I've used it twice now in normal setting. Both times it has charged quickly and the car instruments have been fine. It has a desulphonation process, to keep the battery plates free of deposits. I'm hoping that the charging programme will keep the battery in good condition and maximise its lifetime."

"The CTEK chargers are quality products but they are not cheap. This one is Ok for small batteries but it only has a 3.6 amp output so its pushing it for charging batteries 'up to 75ah' as it states.
Better to consider the XS7 or XS10 if your battery is more than 50ah."
