  5. 110 amp hours , not volts I'm guessing?
    You'll be charging something large, it's not going to matter if it's marketed as a leisure or car charger. Stirling do amazing charges if you can splash out.
    Whst you drawing off the battery?

    I was just reading some of the reviews. Are some ppl that daft that they think an old knackered battery is going to take and hold a charge :confused:

    A car charger will charge a leisure battery, but will not do it properly.

    A leisure battery charger is designed to 'force' a little more charge into the battery. We used a car charger to begin with the leisure battery on the trailer and we had no end of issues. A leisure battery would last about 8 or 9 months. Whether it was the battery charger or exposure to the elements I don't know.

    When I upgraded to a van setup nearly 7 years ago I also bought a Leisure Battery charger. The first 110 amph leisure battery lasted 3 years and the current 110 amph Numax battery will be 4 years old in January.

    I bought this

    The only thing I've done is put a drop of 3 in 1 oil on the cooling fan bearings - probably a years ago.
