F50 battery charger

My charger is still running fine however being sensible regarding a off charge time in case of failure of the present old original charger ( mainly because of the gauges batteries uncharged in that moment ) and the normally needed time to order and deliver i was wondering if a) any battery charger could be used as long as a special 3 pole end of that f50 charger is present or b) if there are any other f-car types which use the same 3 pole charger ? Thanks for any ideas or hints!

The F50 wasn´t delivered with a charger. The charger from Ferrari wich works, is the same as for the 355/360/456...


We use a Cetek Charger, wich works very well. A big one for fast charging and reconditioning, and a small all time charger to keep the battery and the display alive.

I use (and have for several years) a Ctek charger on the F50. Never had a single issue.

Problem solved, CTEK charger bought, local car electrician changed one end to the "special" F50 plug in adapter. Thank you all again for the assistance.
