What I’ve liked is that – unlike many battery optimisers/maintainers (you can’t just say ‘chargers’ anymore, it seems) – is that you’ve got a screen which logically gives you information about what the situation is with the battery.
If it’s ‘Recovering’ the battery, that’s what it’s doing – and if the battery is ‘weak’ it will tell you that too. In addition, you can also charge car batteries, caravan leisure batteries – pretty much the lot!
I’ve dropped the thing a fair few times and it still works so it’s pretty sturdy – even if it doesn’t have the solidity of other chargers.
One thing I have noticed of late though is that the ol’ girl didn’t manage to charge a very flat scooter’s battery, so a competitor’s battery maintainer was hooked up and it was sorted within days. Of course, in mitigation it could be that the Maximiser had almost got the job done anyway. Like when I used to loosen tight jar lids for the ex to open... Bertie Simmonds
