Name is***** goal is to provide you with excellent service – if you feel you have gotten anything less, please reply back,

I would fit a battery tender ,this is a charger that is fitted permantly in the boot of your car next to the battery , then when you want to store your car all you do is open the boot and connect to the mains , this is a charger that keeps the battery charged .

What is a Battery Tender?
It’s a device that plugs into a standard AC outlet and transfers power in the form of amps to your 12 V battery to keep it operational over long periods of inactivity.
Battery Tender battery chargers are essential if you have seasonal vehicles that sit without being used.
With a Battery Tender, your vehicle’s battery will still be as fresh as the day you left it. Battery Tender chargers are designed to fully charge a battery and maintain it at proper storage voltage without the damaging effects caused by trickle chargers.
