5 Amp Battery Charger

 Hi All

My 5 Amp C Tek charger of many years is finally giving up the ghost.

Was thinking of a Noco Genius to replace it as it does Lithium as well. Any thoughts on this

 The Cteks are very good

 The Cteks are very good chargers, but unfortunately let down by the importers if my memory serves me.

I had one that packed up well within 5 yrs.

Contacted importer, who told me there are several importers.

I gave them the serial number and they refuesed to check if it was one of theirs.

I contacted Ctek who said it was manufactured well within 5 yrs and to go thru any importer as they would replace it.

But they wouldnt without a receipt to prove they imported it.

Ctek replaced direct after a bit of too and fro

 sorry about your issues with ctek 

I bought mine from Baintech AU

I had the exact opposite- i lost the screw that hold the terminal on , dropped into car where i couldnt get it

Baintech at there cost, sent one to me to a dealer in tassie , as we were traveling there at the time

they also included some other bits and pieces , heatshrink, spare terminals etc.

I will only buy there products _ i rate CTEK

there are cheap rip offs that looks exactly the same
