Hi Folks,

I was wondering if any off the shelf battery chargers anr suitable for Lead Calcium batterys?
I have got a new 43ah ford silver calcium battery and was thinking about giving it a tricle charge before I fit it, but not sure if my old battery charger is suitable for Lead Calcium batterys :unsure:

Have something to contribute?
