Could anyone please help me? I have a Honda Civic 170i car in South Africa which I keep in storage for long periods of time while I'm working in the UK. I'm going back to SA in August for 2 months & I realize I'll have to buy a new battery because the car hasn't been driven for about a year (I don't have anyone there who can charge it for me). I was wondering if there's anything I can do to keep the battery charged while it's in storage so I don't have to buy a new battery every time I go back?
A friend in the UK told me recently that I should buy a "Deltran Battery Tender International Plus" battery charger. He said I would be able to just plug it in and leave it & it would keep the battery charged, switch itself off when it's fully charged, and switch itself on again when it needs more charge.
Do you think this might be a solution to my problem? And if so, do you have any idea how many amps/ what size (?) battery charger I would need to get for a Honda Civic? I've tried Googling for info but ..er, I'm a bit hopeless when it comes to car stuff.
Any help or advice would be SO much appreciated.
Thank you in advance.
