Having had poor reception fade in and out issues with my Status led finder booster and no help from them I decided to look at the British made Fringe version. Not only is it marginally cheaper its very clear led readout makes it very easy to align your aerial. Contacted Fringe direct as my connections were different and they were so helpful, made sure that I ordered the right one, supplied it with screw in connectors and lots of helpful advice. Received next day fitted and working in ten minutes! Cant rate them high enough so if you are thinking of replacing your old style booster with the new types contact Fringe you wont find better service.
OK, a grandiose title for a simple gadget! I bought one of those booster packs for the car because I once flattened my battery in the middle of nowhere and had to wait an unfeasible amount of time for the AA – not happening again. So I wanted to charge it and keep it maintained and store it in my boot ready for whenever I needed it. .. I could just plug it directly into a 12v accessory socket but because this battery was very much smaller than my car battery I thought there might be overcharging issues and, of course, if my battery went flat, so would my ‘backup’. So I bought a cheap(ish) solar regulator from Maplins. Hard wired the ‘solar’ terminals to my battery (fused, of course) and the battery terminals to my booster pack. Now when the alternator is running, the regulator thinks it’s getting power from a solar panel and charges/maintains the booster pack as it would do any other lead-acid battery. Booster pack will never be overcharged, never drain if the car battery were to drain and is kept fully charged. It’s also got a 240v inverter and a light so comes in handy when outdoors too. Booster pack, regulator and accessories. £70. Peace of mind from knowing I’ll always be mobile. Priceless.
