    Hi I will need to put my car in storage shortly for about 5 weeks.
    I have had a few messages on the I drive IE excessive battery discharge, also the time and date needs resetting quite frequently.
    I have had the battery condition & charge rate checked and that all came back fine.The car at the moment only does short journeys so the problem may lie there.
    I would like to leave the charger connected whilst the car is not being used, so as when I come back to the car the battery will still be fully functional and with no loss of memory.
    Another option would be to take the battery of the car fully charge it on my current charger and re charge it when its
    needed.
    Looking to pay up to £50.00.
    Thanks Dek

    Quick update purchased a CTEK CTE-MXS5.0 5A 12V Car Battery Charger £52.00 @ Amazon.
    Used the Recon option which is recommend to be used once a year so probably never been used on this battery worked perfectly brought the battery up to float option in about 3 hours.Used the car on the usual short journeys and no more warnings regarding time and date needs resetting. Hope fully two birds with one stone time will tell.
