    Re: Today was Battery day

    Right, so car now operational was a bit of a mission to fit as the battery fits under the passenger seat, I opted for the Shido connect lithium, you get an app for it to check its condition and bought a Noco 2 from go batteries (Warwick batteries). Im into good service, the clincher was I emailed them with some questions at 11pm expecting a reply next day and got an immediate response(s) from Mark who's a director, gave me advice and stood his ground with no discount citing service, after sales help and hasn't put is prices up capitalising on Covid unlike many, I respected his comments and felt he earned my business, it did help he had one in Stock and it was cheaper than the only one UK competitor I could see ..I'm keeping the bike so it's money well spent .300 plus on batteries in 2 days.. ouch

    I thought Rob had sold his gen 4? has he bought another one??

    I think with these chargers, they spend some time sorting out what the state of charge is, then testing the holding charge to ascertain what it needs or doesn't so probably not a full hour.

    Re: Today was Battery day

    You got a Lithium fitted Bananaman ? ..I had to manoeuvre the cables to suit, the charger has detachable cables on the croc clips, so whipped the crocs off and turned them into fly leads..cameras shite on this phone. Base of seat looks fine when I offer it up..
