CHARGE ITExide has launched a new battery charger. Called the 12/7 Battery Charger, it has been designed to achieve 100 per cent charge, regardless of the weather. It works for all types and sizes of 12v batteries, including cars, motorcycles, boats and caravans. Temperature has an important effect on charging and this new Exide charger will offer full charging between temperatures of minus 40degC to plus 50 degC – so they probably have most situations covered. As you would expect the charger has ‘robust overcharge protection’ and also has anti-spark technology in place to protect against faulty batteries and connections. For more details check out the Exide website.

PICK-UP ROOF RACKINGThe roof rack cages from ARB are all constructed from hardened steel tubing, with cross bars to add strength and allow for carrying up to 75kg. The mounting pack also includes an air deflector, which not only reduces aerodynamic drag but is also claimed to reduce wind noise. The cage shown here is actually for the Isuzu D Max but Arbil carries an extensive selection of cages (from £500) and mounting kits (from £200). As ever it makes sense to give the Arbil team a call, and make sure you tell them we sent you!

WIDE BOY TOUAREGExcellent SUV that it is, the VW Touareg cannot be claimed to be a particularly distinctive vehicle, so it’s no surprise that German tuning company JE Design has produced a new Widebody kit for R-Line series Touaregs. A combination of 22inch alloy wheels, lowered suspension and the new body kit will certainly make the Touareg stand out on the street! And it’s not just an ‘all-show-no-go’ option as there are tuning packages available for the Touareg by JE Design that tweak the engine management systems and, for example, will push the 4.2-litre TDI engine from 340bhp to 410bhp, which it’s likely you’ll notice from behind the wheel! Tuning packages are strictly controlled in Germany and all these modifications come with the necessary TÜV certificates. The company has a very comprehensive website, all in English.

FRIDGE ACCESSORIESFinding a mobile fridge freezer that suits you both in size and cost is one thing, but you have to be sure that it can be connected correctly to your vehicle. ARB now has a variety of new power accessories to cater for a wide variety of installation types and is claimed to make sure that the electric performance of both the vehicle and the fridge is maximised. The one thing that you do not want is a voltage drop while the fridge is keeping those beers cool for when you finish driving! To this end, there’s a new DC Wiring Kit, DC Threaded Socket set and 12/24V DC Plug available. Produced by ARB, the quality will be high and is available in the UK at Arbil.

FRIDGE ACCESSORIESIt’s fair to say that standard original Land Rover headlamps are not that powerful… even the latest models use conventional reflector lenses according to specialists Ring Automotive. To improve matters, Ring has produced a seven inch Complex Surface Reflector headlamp which means that owners can make a simple replacement and actually see where they are going. If fitted with Ring’s XenonUltima bulbs it is claimed that there will be 120 per cent more light available over the original headlamps. The headlamp units come as a pair obviously and both have fitted the XenonUltima H4 bulbs and IceBlue side light. They are H4 fitment for full beam and dipped beam and come with a three year warranty and are E approved. The suggested RRP is £69.99.
