I'm looking to buy a battery booster , what have you guys got and what are you best buy tips?
First time ever this morning , came out to my car , and completely dead battery , Had to call Recovery.
Now when i had my car services Ford gave me free breakdown cover for a year , and today i had to use it. AA man turned up after 80 minutes.
Car battery was completely dead , doors would not open off remote , no ignition lights , nothing.
Could not Bump start as it's keyless entry and no ignition lights.
Once the AA man placed his booster on , it started first time and was charging at over 24 amps and 14v , so he said the battery was not duff.
What did i do different.?
Well i was on the phone , via bluetooth at the time i arrived at work , parked and then turned ignition off and sat talking for about 5 minutes with ignition off via bluetooth. Got out locked and walked away.
AA man thinks maybe a module then failed to shutdown and discharged the battery , makes sense i guess , so next time i'm on the phone i won't be turning the engine off.
So i'm looking for a Booster pack just incase i have a battery prolem in the future.
