In my opinion, I would suggest that probably one of best you could purchase is a CTEK 7. Could be I am bias as I use one, but you will find it is well supported by many members of this Forum.

Regards and Best Wishes, John

Hi John,

Thanks for your advice, I will now use the CTEK 7 as per your post. So, would it be a matter of connecting CTEK positive to the positive battery  terminal and the CTEC negative to ground, then switching on the CTEC and remove both terminals from the old battery  then connect up my new battery?

Thanks, Rob.

I misunderstood your posting, thinking you were looking for a battery charger/conditioner for the new battery, knowing that the S Type drained a battery somewhat.

Not certain of the actual swop procedure, so would not advise. Someone else on this Forum will certainly be willing and able to give you that advice.

There is a very definitive document on this Forum on how to Reset a Battery if you loose the codes . I have tried three times to attach it to this message and always lose it. I will put it on a separate post.

There is a mass of information online regarding the CTEK equipment. It comes complete with instructions and all fittings that are needed to set it up for your car.

 

Best Wishes , John

Have now checked the features on the CTEK MX 7.0

It CAN be used to keep a supply to your car whilst you swop batteries.

There is a video on CTEX`s own website where this is explained and I have attached a link to the video.

https://www.ctek.com/uk/battery-chargers-12v-24v/mxs-7-0-uk

The manual supplied with the product is not particularly expansive with information but their own website has series of video explanations that makes using the unit understandable.

Hope all of the posts have been clear enough and that you make your battery change and future conditioning in an easy manner.

Best Wishes and Regards, John
