    Had this solar trickle charger for years and used it whenever I leave to work abroad. Though only 1.5W it certainly helps during long storage and prevents the battery from being flat.

    about panther manual battery charger, paano paggamit nyan? pwede ba iwan nakakabit sa battery at AC power for 24 hours and more, without damaging the battery?

    hindi kasi magagamit ang car for 1-3 months so ipapakabit ko lang sa kapatid ko ung charger sa car battery.. like every 2 weeks or 4 weeks for maintenance charging. dapat safe na pwede iwan nakakabit para kahit makalimutan at kinabukasan pa tanggalin ang charger ay okay lang.
    Better to ask your brother to start the car engine or maybe use the car for a couple of kms once a week or so. Battery is the least of your concern when leaving a vehicle for extended period of time.

    guys, i appreciate the suggestion but driving the car is not an option for us.

    i read that starting the car engine will substantially drain more energy from the battery than can be charged back by leaving the engine at idle. mas mabilis daw ma-drain ang battery. tama ba ang info na ito??

    if yes, then kailangan ko pa rin ng battery charger para di mag-flat empty ang battery.

    yespo. idling won't do it. you have to take the car to the road and at speed, in order to sufficiently charge the battery.
    but leaving the trickle charger on, un-attended, might not be a good idea, either.
    what we do, is to charge the battery at regular intervals (q 3 weeks), using more than just a tickle of an amperage. nakikita naman kapag near-full charge na, e. the current meter of the charger will show a significant drop in the amperage. say, from 7 amp to 1 amp..

    it may not be a good idea to let the car remain un-moved for longer periods. yung car namin, hindi ginamit nang 3 weeks.. binahayan ng langgam ang loob ng side skirt.. hirap patayin..

    nice. maganda ngang brand itong CTEK (Sweden). pricey din similar to deca (Italy). you pay for quality talaga.

    CTEK MSX 5.0 (5A) = P5,000
