Projecta 12V 4amp Battery Charger $55.90 @ Bunnings

80

Saw this on price hipster. By far the cheapest price. Plenty of stock around.

Good to keep your car batteries in top shape. They tend to last a lot longer if you charge them every now and then. I charge mine every couple of months or so.

The lowest price before this was $88.90

It will charge large deep cycle batteries but will take a long time.

Also note that this can charge batteries that have dropped down as low as 3v

    I bought the aldi auto xs 3.8A charger which does car amd bike and also 6V. Currently goes for 29 but you can find it on clearance for potentially 20.

      The car batteries have been reduced from $99 to $69 in last week, so chargers in same sale might be reduced.

      Videos of operation on YouTube
      After charging, switches to trickle charge. Displays voltage & state of charge.

      But this Deal has smart six stage charge system. A different type of charger.

      Video link in Aldi Deal shows it won't charge a very flat battery.
      This charges from flat (3V). Also has rejuvenation mode.

        This video @23:45 shows once battery voltage drops to around 6V, the charger detects the 12V battery as a 6V one & charges it as one.

        So minimum voltage a flat 12V battery can fall to is about 7.5V with this charger.

      Checked - sold out in my Aldi District stores.
      According to video review, this also has rejuvenation mode.

    I use this. Good charger. Good price

    Cheapest does Not, IMO, imply Cheap

    Cheap is ~Au$ 20 (last we checked) for a Smart Charger

    "Mother OzB" won't let me suggest a vendor
    (as I have No Time to look for one w/100%
    feedback across (How Many?!?) transactions)

    But the one I mean is the one Lotsa vendors
    seem to feature; it's wise to buy 2, unless
    you can, eg, replace small fan safely.

    We use 'em to keep $99 4WD batteries topped-
    up: Not in vehicles; used as lo-cast backups

    Doing so puts ~$20 in ur pocket vs Projecta

    Hi is this ideal to charge car battery? my battery easily goes flat had to jump start it every now and then

  •  

    Product info & specs

    Has smart six stage charge system.
    Charges battery from flat (some charges won't charge a battery after leaving the headlights on, dropping the voltage to 10V)
    Has rejuvenation mode.
    Has holes for permanent mounting
    0.6m fused harness allows permanent connection to battery - just clip on the charger

    Seems a bit like a cheap type of CTEK charger.

    You only need a 3 stage charger, the rest is BS.
    If your battery is at 3v, buy a replacement asap.

      It's nothing much to do with a battery voltage at 3V. That's not healthy. This charger may not successfully charge a battery at 3V (or 12.6V).

      3V is the minimum voltage at which the smart charger can DETECT a connected battery.
      Well regarded CTEK chargers detect at 2V.
      Aldi charger above only detects correctly above 7V.

      As smart chargers only charge when a battery is detected - it's reassuring it may charge a flat battery (above 3V) in an emergency.

      Frustrating when a battery is connected to a smart charger & it shows no battery connected!

      In a cheap smart charger I tried - that detection voltage was a high 10V. It's no use if a battery that has been left with headlights on for a while, can't be charged because the voltage is below that minimum.

    Pulled the trigger OP thanks. its currently $129 @ autobarn perfect timing as my battery just gone flat the other day

  •  

    Price increased! Marked as EXPIRED.

    $56 @SuperCheap on CLERANCE - Bunnings may price match?

      I have that from about 5 years ago. It's great

      •  

        Lots of recommendations from long time users👍 Now have one😊

        Wanted one for years, but have a few free old chargers. Commented this charger seems like a cheap CTEK, so thought I should get the real thing!
