Nice test!

I have a Halfords pro and a draper. In fairness, I don't let them 'kick around the garage'. They are stored carefully (one in foam, one in the halfords tube), with the dials spun to zero to keep the springs unloaded.

I still wouldn't touch a £15.99 one.

thanks for this op.

went and got one this morning.

got home, opened the sealed box up and it looks like its been kicked about the floor before boxing it. covered in scuff marks and it doesn't show a full led display when plugged in.

back to aldi I go, I have no fking luck

I might get one of these thanks, screw paying £40 - £50 for an oxford 900 or something.

Mind you I think the oxford 600 is only £20 of ebay.
The basic Oximiser is a bit of a crap thing, not a proper smart charger and more of a dumb trickle charger.

got a replacement aldi battery charger and used it last night.

THought it was great, easy to use, shows the capacity of the battery and has a trickle function. Not bad for £14

can someone explain the difference between the Aldi one and:
http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/OXFORD-OXIMISER-600-12V-...

as the price difference is about the same as the fuel used to collect the Aldi one

The Aldi is a proper smart battery charger i.e. it uses a micro-controller to regulate charge current and voltage. The Oximiser is essentially just a trickle charger, it has no intelligence built in, just a simple voltage cut off circuit.
