Disco 5 battery charging.

Post by LesGAllen » Wed Apr 15, 2020 4:22 pm

Hi, unusually my car is not getting very much use currently.
Can I use the two battery/power posts under under the bonnet as suitable charging points for the external charger?
Thanks in anticipation.

Hi Les
Copied this from another site. Obviously others having the same problems.

I use the NOCO genius 5, available at Halfords and arrives about 3 days later. Trade price is £52. 

I just connected it to the battery terminals under the bonnet and it charged it up fine. This was after a recommendation on the RRS forums from a technician. 

You will need an AGM battery charger, so think CTEK, Optimate, Noco etc. not your jobby £15 charger sat in the shed from 2005. 


I highly recommend the NOCO Genius because it is tiny and has really long leads and so it easily allows the bonnet to be closed with the charger inside
