Battery conditioner connection

Recommended Posts

I will collect my Chrome Orange in the next 10 days or so, but was wondering where in the car the battery is and how best to leave it hooked up to a conditioner.

I will use the CTEK I used previously, but as the battery end permanent connector went with my old car (that got written off) I have to buy another, but need to know how long it needs to be.

Anyone use these things and have some suggestions?

I asked the same question a little while ago here:

http://www.thelotusforums.com/forums/topic/53283-battery-conditioners-and-fixed-wiring/

The upshot is to use the 12V socket in the boot, which is the only one that's permanently live. It's perfectly possible to run the wiring across the boot seal and shut it, leaving the conditioner connected. If you want to wire direct to the battery it's behind a rather fiddly access panel in the boot on the nearside. Plugging into the 12V socket is much simpler.

Cheers, I saw that on Amazon so will order it up.

Superb choice in colour!

Well, the photos of yours in the Grampians did sway me! I think a bold, bright colour suits the shape and lines of the car well.

Is it the one with the black roof?

It's the "plain" one - I wasn't keen on the look of the black roof in the photos really, and I don't think it had the spec I was after anyway.

Radium CAI will be on the cards very soon, as well as an exhaust at some point.

Lothians, but I visit Moray quite often so A939 and A93 are happy hunting grounds - A93 less so since I wrote my S2000 off on black ice at Glenshee last November though ............
