Ring SmartCharge Premium + From £69.95
This bit of kit is a multi-awardwinning, intelligent battery charger and analyser. And we have to agree that it’s worthy of those accolades, as it’s pretty clever. Smart chargers are all the rage these days, especially as more modern classics use a much more sophisticated array of electronics, which puts higher demands on the battery. Ring’s smartcharger offers multi-charging cycles plus an automatic maintenance mode, as well as settings for charging batteries in very low temperatures, and it can actually restore sulphated batteries. It can test your alternator, and comes with its own black and red cables. Frankly, for less than £70 it’s so diverse, that it’s almost a must-have for classic owners. It’s suitable for all battery types and for 12-volt vehicles with engines up to 5.0-litre.
