Great product, it gives you a visible warning of potential battery damage by sulfating plates. I mounted my device in front of my battery, which enables me to check my voltage at a glance via the traffic light LED's.
Adapter cables with plugs are available, just visit the Ctek website. I connected my solar panel to this Ctek Car Battey Condition Indecator. This product workes great. Ideal warning for batteries standing idle before failing.
I recommend this product!
I like:complete device, safety fused, red amber green led's, socket for charging or power, adapters available
I don't like as much:fragile rubber socket cap

This product was complete with fuse holder and fuse. But I did find the socket a little rough looking, perhaps ok on a tractor, or mower where you dont have doors, and just plug in your Ctek charger. But you may need to purchase these adapters elswhere.
But I was happy to keep the other model Ctek Battery charge monitor, which I wired under the bonnet, this also has a charge socket, just not panel mounted. Cheeper though.
I recommend this product!
I like:complete
I don't like as much:not pretty looking.

Not usual Ring Standard, Wire connection hole Too Large, Grub screws Too Small, No Rubber Gromet, and No Fixing Bolts. Want a solid job then avoid this 12N socket.
No, I do not recommend this product.

This is a product that really works well, its great at repelling water, as well as repelling salt, dust, sand, misting. It even keeps the rubber seals in better condition.
I've used this inside and out, front, side and rear windows, for many years now. And praised Rain X even more when my windscreen wiper motor failed on my old Datsun Bluebird, as I was safetly able to continue my journey.
There was one instance where the use of Rain X was a concern, I applied this to a friends sports car, and it was quite apparent that in the rain at night with oncomming headlamps there was a visible blooming on the screen. So for cars with shallow sloping windscreens try this product first, it may not suit your driving position. But a great product if it workes for you.
I recommend this product!

Only the best adapter/hose fitting i have ever had the pleasure to use. It can be fitted to any air supply that has a small bore hose nipple, included in the kit is a Jubilee clip plus pump screw fittings. The hose length is long which stopps one having to bend while in use.
I fitted mine to my compressor pump/gauge device to enable me to inflate my Tubeless MTB tyres. The Topeak adapter holds itself on the Schrad/Presta valve brilliantly and you can inflate to 120psi road tyres without difficulty. Replacement seals are available too from Topeak. Perhaps Halfords will stock.
I recommend this product!
I like:high pressure inflating possible, spare seals available, long hose, schrad and prest use, good valve seal when seated
I don't like as much:a little expencive

You just have to Check out the spec of this Full Suspension VooDoo Canzo MTB, and you will agree there is value for money here, I could not believe how good this was. from Air Shox to Sealed Bearings, 30speed Shimano gears to Auriga Hydraulic brakes.
Its a pleasure to ride too, Responsive to Steer, and as Agile as the rider. Its a brilliant design with a Pedigree.
The only changes made which were my personal preference, was a swap of Saddle, 130lbs in the Front Shox and 230lbs in the rear
I recommend this product!
I like:outstanding quality for price, light weight, strong design, 30 shimano gears, 26 x 2.35 tyres, hydraulic disc brakes, full shox airsuspension, alloy frame, sealed bearings, looks good
I don't like as much:a manual for the canzo to help seting up., none found on this mtb

CTEK 56-382 M8 Comfort Indicator compatibility with XS3600 charger?

I have a CTEK XS3600 charger which I bought in 2006 from a Mercedes dealer in the UK. It is branded as Mercedes Benz.. It is fitted with an in-line connector in the wires to the crocodile clips.
Is the 56-382 M8 Comfort Indicator which you sell compatible with my XS3600 charger - i.e.will they plug together. If your store in Bath Road, Slough, has a 56-382, I could bring my charger there and see if they plug together.

If you check the Ctek website, you will find an adapter for older Ctek chargers. If this looks different, then contact them, im sure they would be only to delighted to help.
