CTEK, a leading global brand in the care and maintenance of vehicle batteries, has launched the D250S, a new onboard smart battery charger that is powered from the alternator and, will not only charge leisure batteries, but also condition and extend their life, helping consumers avoid battery failure.
The problems of properly charging and maintaining a leisure battery whilst on the move are well known. With an increasing number of electrical items available that draw from the battery, leisure batteries are notoriously difficult to maintain and, are especially prone to sulphation, loss of capacity and ultimately a shortened life span.
Developed using the unique patented technology available in CTEK's mains powered chargers, the new D250S charger allows CTEK's safe and effective charging technology to be utilised when on the move - using either the vehicle alternator or solar as the power source.
The D250S provides battery protection through a six step charging curve that conditions, charges and maintains the leisure battery, increasing performance, extending its life span and, saving user money on unnecessary battery replacement. With around 80% of all battery failures due to sulphation caused by undercharging - a direct result of lack of care and maintenance, the D250S removes lead-sulphate from the plates using its patented desulphation mode before delivering up to 20 amps of controlled charging power.
The D250S is in constant communication with both the alternator and the leisure battery. Recognising when the alternator is powered, the D250S switches itself on, reads the condition of the leisure battery and begins its charging cycle. The unit switches itself off once the engine is stopped and the alternator shuts down. Operating in this way the D250S is completely separated from the starter battery whose performance and operation is unaffected.
Safe and simple to use, the D250S offers an affordable and comprehensive solution to battery charging and protection whilst on the move.
