  1. Ganesh, might this be of interest? It appears that you don't have to plug it into the cig lighter on your car (although that option is available). It's a battery power pack with compressor. Rechargeable at the mains. I'm thinking this might be a good buy on the basis that the cost of a compressor plus the cost of a converter would cost as much. Anyone else on here got a view? https://www.machinemart.co.uk/p/jump-start-910-cw-12v-compressor/
  2. I'm looking for a Voltage Converter AC 240V to DC 12V to go with my proposed purchase of a powered tyre inflator (compressor). The one in the link below appears to have good reviews. Is there much difference between all the ones on the market? Does anyone on here have any recommendations? https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B019H2EQWY/ref=ox_sc_saved_title_3?smid=A3993T6ETSKJ8R&psc=1&tag=autoclubinte-21
  3. Hi Garth I've had a look at the Heyner website and all the current models appear to be analogue display. Is your one digital display? Just wondered as the description you gave is Digimatic. I've emailed them to ask which one from their current range is the equivalent one to yours.
  4. You can get aVoltage Converter 240v to DC 12v. I've got this one on my watchlist with two others but this one has the better reviews. https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B019H2EQWY/ref=ox_sc_saved_title_3?smid=A3993T6ETSKJ8R&psc=1 Can anyone on here on recommend one? Thanks.
  5. +1. Loads of stuff on here about the CTEK MSX5, just bought one this week. Do a search on LOC for CTEK MSX5
  6. David, yes Aldi and Lidl do have some good stuff, you just have to be there at the right time, will bear in mind.
  7. Mark, yes they've got the Ring ones on amazon and also recommended (I think) on honestjohn.co.uk.
  8. Garth. I quite fancy this one too, pity that exact one is discontinued.
  9. Ganesh. No problem, be interesting to see what gets recommended.😀
  10. Piers, thank you. I have that one on my watchlist on amazon. Good to know you recommend it. The amazon reviews are excellent. Definitely considering this one.
  11. Thanks Garth Anyone else???????????
  12. Does anyone on here use a powered tyre inflator? Just looking for some recommendations. Plenty on amazon with reviews but would prefer reviews from the Lexus forum. As we're getting older it would be easier than a foot pump. Although I don't mind the exercise myself, I'm really thinking of my wife should I not be available for whatever reason. Looking for something that gives a reading of the pressure rather than having to use a separate tyre pressure gauge to check. Maybe one where you set the pressure desired and it stops when that is reached.
  13. I'm also with LV and so is my wife's Jazz. Use to be Saga which were fine for years, always bettered a competitor quote by £1 but they stopped offering me that and their premiums started to rise a lot. No claims and no speeding tickets so no real reason for premiums to rise above inflation. I agree with Roger, I also noticed a step change with LV at my last two renewals as I always go on the comparison sites, find a competitive quote from a known company and if it's cheaper than the LV quote use that as a bargaining tool or I often found a quote from LV on the comparison sites at a far lower price for as exactly the same cover, but they have changed their tack and don't appear to be offering lower prices on the web than the renewal price which I find quite refreshing.
  14. This is Sweden's response https://www.theguardian.com/world/2020/mar/30/catastrophe-sweden-coronavirus-stoicism-lockdown-europe?utm_term=RWRpdG9yaWFsX0d1YXJkaWFuVG9kYXlVS19XZWVrZGF5cy0yMDAzMzE=&utm_source=esp&utm_medium=Email&CMP=GTUK_email&utm_campaign=GuardianTodayUK
  15. OK, so my car is now on SORN, battery charger bought and connected. Photos attached. Thanks for the help and advice
