Happy new year Gents and hope you all had a wonderful festive season.

As the title says, I have had a Halfords 12v/6v battery conditioner for a couple of years and today thankfully whilst I was in the garage I noticed a burning smell and traced it to the battery conditioner connected to my AK. On closer inspection it had started to melt in one corner so disconnected it and threw it outside to cool off (thank the stars I was in the garage, because it usually sits in the boot!!).

Whilst not being happy at this failing after only a couple of years, I am understandably nervous of purchasing another one of the same ilk and wondered if there is a particular tried and tested one out there that will be more reliable?

Many thanks.
