Will this work to charge a completely flat battery for a 1988 Mercedes 2404cc van?

Yes. If it still has a residual charge the charger will just display yellow charge light and you just leave it. If it is totally dead it will change to green after a few seconds which means its too flat. In this case just wait until the green light comes on and disconnect the negative and reattach. If the green light comes on again after a few seconds repeat. Took me 4 go's before the battery had enough charge to let it work.

So Long as the cells are still ok it will work.

You need to disconnect the battery from the van.

Halfords can check the battery for you as they have specialist tools for this purpose.

This charger would be suitable for the battery in your vehicle. However, if the battery has gone completely flat it may be damaged and might not accept a charge at all.

Yes, this charger uses pulse conditioning and a constant voltage mode to maintain the battery.

We would recommend the Halfords maintenance charger (Code 188946) as correct product to trickle charge this battery for your car.
This product is not currently on our website but we will add this in the next few days, however this charger is available in our stores
However we would never recommend leaving a lead acid batttery on charge indefinately. It should be regualry checked.

Standard batteries have a removable cap to allow replenishment of de-ionised water.

Take a look at the battery. Most modern maintenance free batteries would be classed as sealed batteries. Some older batteries need to be topped up with de-ionised water, these would be classed as standard type batteries.

I have a BMW Mini Cooper which has
not been driven since before Christmas. The battery while fairly new, is now completely flat. Will this charger be able to tell me if the battery is beyond saving and that I need a new one?

Also what kind of battery does my car have?

Thanks

Your description sounds as if the the battery may have reached the end of it’s service life and requires replacement. Please take the battery to your local store who have specialist equipment for checking batteries.

How long does it take to charge a battery?
I have been charging my battery for nearly 24h but it still saying charging. It's a bike battery YB10L-B2. I have selected "bike" and "standard". Spoke to someone at a bike shop and he said it should be set to full charge instead of trickle charge but I can't see an option for this. Please help!

I bought a new battery and got them to charge half way the guy at the shop said it only needed a further 1h charge. When I got home @ 18:00 I put it straight on charge but by midnight it was still charging I decided to leave it on overnight. To my surprise in the morning the fully charged light was on. So either the first battery was faulty or 24h charging was not long enough either way it takes longer than I expected to charge these batteries.

Your battery is fully charged, and charger has switched to maintenance mode. You can leave charger on indefinately in this mode without harming battery.

The green light shows the battery to be fully charged. The yellow led flashes to show that the battery is now being maintained in maintenance mode. This is normal and correct.

current will only flow if it is connected to a battery. as it needs to sense a voltage from the battery it is charging

Please replace the 20 amp fuse and the charger should work OK. A spare fuse is located in the centre of the cable reel on the back of the charger.

Charging a flat battery
My battery is nearly flat - the ignition lights lights in the display work, but the car will not start. It is a Mercedes W124 E220 petrol. Will this revive the battery? Do I have to disconnect the battery first or simply connect the charger and switch it on?

Yes it will. You will see reviews saying the charger wont work unless it has at least some charge remaining but i managed it. When you connect it the charge light will illuminate and when finished it will go green. If it turns green after 3 seconds disconnect and reattach the negative lead. Do this until the charge light stays on as it will now have enough charge to allow it to operate. you dont have to disconnect the battery but dont start the car

This charger is suitable for your vehicle but if your battery is too deeply discharged it may be damaged and might not take a charge. Remove the battery from the vehicle before charging.

are you charging both batteries at the same time? if so they both need to be the same rating. Also if the old battery is not as good as the new one it will drag the new one down. Try charging them individually.
