Looking after the battery - winters here!!

Post by raynorfolk » Wed Jan 04, 2017 4:20 pm

I don't do a lot of miles in my J11 so am planning to keep the battery topped up by using a smart charger (CTEK XS3600) This charger is designed to be left operating for long periods during which time the bonnet will be open. I am concerned the the bonnet sensor will trip the alarm system. does anyone know if this is the case? Maybe I will need to close the bonnet on the charger leads? Or......
Comments appreciated

Just close the bonnet, you'll find there is enough room to avoid trapping the charger cable.

Thanks gymdaddy. The only other thing is I was told that batteries should be charged in a well ventilated area. I'm a born worrier!!
