The Ozcharge OC-PRO1200 Battery Charger is designed for lead-acid sealed batteries (Calcium, AGM, Gel & Wet) from 3Ah to 120Ah. The charger can also be used to maintain batteries up to 360Ah and comes with a specialized Eco-Mode to save power. The Ozcharge battery chargers are built with a in ultra low power consumption circuit. If AC power is connected and the battery is disconnected, after 10 seconds the charger will automatically go into an ECO mode. During this mode the power drawn is less than 0.36W which totals 0.01kWh per day power consumption. If AC power is connected and the battery is connected, once the battery is fully charged and during the long term maintenance stage, the total power consumption is around 0.03kWh per day.

Next time you are checking your oil and water under the bonnet, have a look at your batteries clamps and terminals. If they are covered in corrosion, cleaning them should be a top priority with how destructive the acidic residue can be on metal surfaces. The acidic residue is caused by the natural processes of your battery being charged and can be cleaned and prevented in a few simple ways. If there is a great deal of sulphation on the clamps and terminals there is several ways to clean them. The oldest one being simply boiling your kettle and pouring water over the affected area. The downside to this is that you must ensure you clean every bit of the corrosion away and its residue or you will continue to have problems. Quickcable has a couple of options:
You should also clean the inside of the clamps (See: DIY Tech Tip No. 1) with a terminal brush to get a nice clean surface on both clamp and terminal. Once you have cleaned the connections and surrounding area, you should try to prevent the corrosion coming back. Prevention of corrosion can be done in several ways, and we use WD40 or Inox products sprayed over the clamps and terminals once they are secured. For more long term solutions we have some Quickcable Corrosion Preventatives in two different options:
If your battery clamps don’t fit on the terminals of your new battery, we have the solution for you. A set of clamp spreaders can make refitting a new battery a much easier process, especially with older vehicles or clamps that have not moved in years. A simple to use but very effective tool to have in your toolbox to save a ton of frustration. If you’ve ever tried to cut copper cable with anything other than proper cable cutters you’ll understand how difficult it is. Instead of leaving a ragged end on the cable, these cable cutters will slice through and leave a nice neat end ready to be crimped and soldered into some cal ends. Just don’t put your finger in there…

If you have ever wondered if your alternator is working or if something is draining your battery then these are the tools for you. A Digital Multimeter can be invaluable in diagnosing faults with alternators and/or bad wiring, letting you know if you are getting power where it needs to be and if your vehicle has a bad case of VD (VD stands for Voltage Drop, this is just bad battery guy humour.). While your alternator might be working there may be other problems sending your battery flat such as a draw or drain on your battery. A Digital Current Meter or Current Clamp will tell you how much electricity is passing through a wire which will allow you to trace the problem back to its source very quickly.
