It happens to the best of us, leaving things such as the head lights or the music player or entertainment system on for hours will most certainly leave you with a dead battery.

A quick solution to recharging your battery instantly? Introducing the DEFA SmartCharge Battery Charger. 

The DEFA Smartcharge battery charger was particular designed for these kind of scenarios.

DEFA says that "everyone should have a DEFA SmartCharge in their car, boat or home, in fact anywhere you might need to charge a battery occasionally and that applies to most homes of course."
It's also ideal for the car, boat, motorbike, lawnmower or moped, as well as snow scooters with an electric starter motor.

How does it work? 

It's very simple. All you have to do is plug the device into a power supply unit (two prong plug) and attach the clips to the assigned battery terminals. The SmartCharger reads how low the battery is, how much charge is needed and when it has fully charged the battery.

The charging socket can also be used to recharge your battery or use it as a power supply when needed. This means that you could use it to recharge mobile phones or cooling boxes.

This is particularly useful when going on road trips or camping. Its relatively small in size and can be easily stored away in medium to small sized back packs.
