Like a lot of others, our GTE is only getting a short trip to the supermarket once a week. For the last two weeks the 12v charge warning has come on when I start the car saying “charge by driving” The warning goes off after about a mile and a half.

can I use a battery charger to charge it? I have googled the issue but cannot see any details. It sounds like there is a charging post under the bonnet.

Yes, you should do exactly that. As previous threads, use a battery conditioner not a trickle charger. They start at only £15 online from the UK.

Tayne battery charger
Yeah, Tayna sell the CTEK MX range of battery charger/conditioners. You can charge up the 12v battery Insitu without disconnection from the vehicle. They also sell a loom for permanent installation into the vehicle and just click the charger in and out as necessary.
