We all know that the cold weather kills car batteries quicker than any monster audio install, so it makes sense that charger sales go absolutely batshit at this time of year!

Still, this new smartcharger from Ring Automotive is one of the very few that does everything you could ever want, cramming an almost unbelievable amount of technology into one seriously tiny package.

Now, not only will this six-amp job juice up any type of car battery (lead acid, gel, calcium, EFB, AGM or lithium) twice as fast as any other comparable unit, but it also carries out the complicated stuff automatically, going through an eight-stage smart-charging cycle to prolong battery life and improve performance.

It’s also ideal for use as a trickle charger for long-term use on race and showcars that rarely see the tarmac at this time of year, and one of the rare items that’s recommended for modern cars with all that stop-start bollocks.

Suitable for any vehicle up to 3.5-litres, it’s even waterproof and has a cold weather mode, so there’s no hassle using it outdoors either. Handy stuff.

Price £65
