Just been round to Tim's and seen his emergency charger! Twisted Evil

It's a bit like an external mobile phone charger (in concept) and is something I've been thinking about for a while. It can be used to charge mobile phones, laptops etc., according to the description.

I already carry a set of jump leads in Bumble and charge both batteries from a trickle charger already, but am really conscious about the possibility of the starter battery not working when I'm out somewhere and getting stuck. This emergency charger would mean not having that worry again (as long as it's charged cheers )

I've just bought one from eBay (see link below) and eBay is doing a 20% off, so it was only £40.01

Here's the link:-

Like the idea, but at £120+ a bit pricey for me, I think I'll wait until someone comes out with a cheaper version. (If the battery is completely flat (less than 5v), it looks like you need electric from somewhere else to charge up the capacitors anyway)

For different reasons, I like Tim's one, in that it can supply other equipment as well.

However, seeing as most of us have another 12v battery on board in the form of a leisure battery, I got a thing similar to this from Maplin a couple of years ago.

The video explains all, but basically you just plug the one end into the cigarette lighter, and attach the other end to the leisure battery (I made up a fly lead with crocodile clips and lighter socket at the other end), wait ten minutes whilst the leisure battery transfers enough power to the starter battery for the starter to work.
