Batteries are the main cause of cold-weather breakdowns, so it pays to have The Best Car Battery charger. A good one will not only get you on your way but will also keep the battery in top condition with regular maintenance. Plus, for infrequently used cars, a charger will keep them ready to go when you want.

Autoexpress recently conducted a review of the best home car battery chargers and as always CTEK came up on top. Especially important that out of the shortlisted products in the final list, only CTEK has a local presence with local support and warranty.

How it was tested

Close behind was Sealey’s keenly priced Autocharge650HF, with the Maypole MP7428 completing the podium.
