There are various types of battery chargers available in the market, which you should wisely choose to keep in your garage. It is not necessary that you own all of these different chargers; one is more than sufficient, unless you have a fleet of vehicles, and thus need a few vehicle chargers on hand in your garage.
The most common types of chargers are the trickle type chargers, which have an output ranging from 0.5 to 2 amps of current. These chargers have to be left connected to a domestic mains electricity supply as the battery needs a long time to completely recharge a car battery.
It is also important to note that using these may lead to a build up of internal heat in the battery so obtaining a smart battery charger is a good decision, such as the JVC battery charger. Then there are fast vehicular chargers that have an output of about 100-200 amps or more. These battery chargers are so fast, they can easily charge a dead camcorder battery within an hour. However as these chargers can lead to a build up of heat in the body of the charger, they should be used only by professionals.
Trickle chargers are cheap. Another type of charger you can consider using in your garage is a car to car charger that works just like jump-starting cables. However it takes up less space, and is much easier to use. All you have to do is connect the 12v sockets of the two cars, and the good battery of the two cars charges the flat battery.
There are so many brands and types of car battery chargers you can choose from for charging your battery. Though all of them make high claims, the only way you will be able to know which charger is best for you is by going through customer reviews of different batteries. At first glance, you will never know how well and long a charger will serve you. It is only through customer reviews such as these that will help you find a long lasting and useful battery charger to keep in your garage.
