My 2002 JDM is on trickle charger. I use a CTEK MXS 5.0 which says 12V 5A on the front. Underside says model 1042. No mention of wattage. Car has a twin male/female bullet connection hooked up to the battery terminals, so it's a quick plug-in.

I've got both a CTEK MXS 5.0 and a MXS 3.8. Either will charge/top-up the battery of a 350Z.


Previously, I used the CTEK XS800 as a trickle charger. If my 350Z hadn't been used for over a week, I'd hook that up and in about 8 hours it would bring the battery back up to full charge.

Yes, I am a miserable bugger. But that's your problem, not mine.

Anything I post may be complete b****ks. Especially after whisky consumption. Don't say I didn't warn you.

If someone had a sense of humour they'd say they were frustrated this conversation was taking too long.


Then someone else would lock it down.
