    i bought two last time round.

    only fault I found....they cant start charging a deeply discharged battery.

    tried it with an old car battery and had to use my 10amp regular workshop charger to get the volts up to a level the Aldi charger could recognise...then it charged OK.

    I bought this charger about 9 months ago from Lidl from recommendation of Road Runner...:thumb:

    It charged my hab battery from dead, and I have used it on what I thought was a duff motorbike battery as well and it brought that back to life...

    Nice little unit, very light and portable.:thumb::thumb:

    I have two of the Lidl variety. As John says, they won't work on a flat starter battery. We once let ours discharge and had to jump start the van then run the engine for about 25 minutes before it had sufficient charge to let the charger take over.
