    Re: Is a portable braai a necessity when overlanding.

    We looked at importing some of these as a group buy - this is probably my ultimate lightweight braai/oven. They also came with throw away bags to collect the fat/ash. No cleaning was required at all

    Please check one more thing - not sure if this applies to the CTEK or not? Some units only connect the second battery once a preset voltage is reached, typically 13.8V.

    Explain "wobble". Is it up/down or sideways or more like a vibration?

    Oval wheels will give mainly up/down movement - can be very uncomfortable. It is a 'slow" frequency if only on one wheel. ...
