    I’m looking a charger for winter storage, last winter I bought a BMW charger which appears to be doing the job perfectly, but I need another 2 so was wondering what you all use / recommend.

    BMW charger appear to be a rebadged CTEK, I looked up their website and there are a few different models, does anyone have any recommendations on which to buy and where to buy it?

    That's a serious saving right there! CTEK are about 50-60 bucks? I'm in the market for a trickle charger and need a decent one ...

    CTEK without a doubt. My weekend car is hooked up to it and is great piece of kit!
