Bat­tery boost­ers

Sporting Gun - - SHOOTING ANSWERS -

What sort of bat­tery charger do you use for keep­ing your whirly bat­tery topped up ready for use? Can you use mo­tor­cy­cle trickle charg­ers that also stop the bat­tery get­ting sul­phated when not used reg­u­larly?

Peter says:

I tend to use 12 volt car bat­ter­ies for my ma­chines, so a stan­dard trickle charger does the trick. How­ever, bat­tery life is re­duced by con­stantly top­ping them up, so don’t ex­pect a bat­tery to last much be­yond 50 charges.
