Could it simply be that the Varta battery has more actual capacity than tired Powerline ones so it's just taking longer to charge?
I think that's the issue Chris, it's not reaching 13.8V while the Powerline do quite quickly, after an hour or so. It hasn't been sunny here generally which hasn't helped! So I was wondering if I could give the Varta a leg up?

I haven't read the specs on the Varta but the Powerlines recommend charging at 13.8V and a single 14.4V charge once a month
