NOCO G3500UK Genius Smart Battery Charger by NOCO
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
I have several lead acid batteries knocking around the place, including a spare car battery and several spare UPS batteries. I also have a car which is seldom used that I put on trickle charge. I also have a couple of very old gel cell alarm batteries.
