    I had one of these when I used to breed geckos, I had to know the tempareture of the floor in the differant parts of the vivariums.

    Found loads of other ueses for it, like balancing the heat output form domestic central heating radiators.

    I wonder were I put it:Doh:

    That's not what I meant, I know they can make em cheap like that but I meant size and that, they look a different thing altogether than the old style large humming charger, what's different in them.

    Thanks for spotting this...I could do with a smarter (and smaller) battery charger than the old Halfords one I've been using.

    Plus, I thought I'd got a good deal with the high-vis jacket (to stick in the van) I bought on Amazon a few weeks ago. When it arrived though I realized that it was going to be lovely and warm this time of year, but in the summer I'd be at more risk of heat-stroke if I wore it than getting run over if I didn't :RollEyes: A high-vis vest would be handy.....£1.99! :Eeek:

    I have the previous model to this one and it is great. The only problem is that it does not start charging unless there is some charge in the battery. Hence, it will not charge a flat battery but will kick in if I give the battery a few mins charging from a booster battery (the portable battery type used to jumps start cars). Will this pulse feature overcome that problem?

    I have the previous model also. It actually also has the pulse feature.

    Like wise with a battery below 10.5V, it did not want to start on its own, so I put two batteries together, to "fool" the charger. After a short while I disconnected the good battery and the charger recovered the old battery.

    However the old battery then charged fully over 24/36 hours, and has been in use ever since.

    This has been the best charger I have ever had, and at a bargain price. I will buy this one and leave it in the van in case my main hab charger packs in...:thumb:.

    Was in Spinney Motorhomes today, there was a CTEC charger, similar size and current on offer for £55.
