Charging the battery


I've used the search to look at what people have said about replacing and OEM vs aftermarket etc etc but I just wanted some clarity on trying to charge an existing one that has thrown up the battery icon on the dash (before forking out for a new one)

I've never had a car with a battery in the boot before, let alone one with apparent charging points under the bonnet. Is it just as simple as connecting my charger to said points and letting it work it's magic?

I've seen a lot of people using CTEK chargers but will my Halfords one suffice? (some have suggested 'cheaper' chargers may do some harm)

Thanks as always
