Motorists can improve the life of their batteries by as much as 300% through the use of a smart battery charger according to CTEK, a leading global brand in the care and maintenance of vehicle batteries.
The use of a CTEK smart charger will optimise the life and performance of lead-acid batteries by gauging the batteries charge and taking the appropriate action to maximise the energy within a battery and extend its lifetime, benefiting both the vehicle owner and the environment.
The award winning CTEK range Battery Chargers can be left attached for as long as necessary without being detrimental to the battery, as the multi-stage charging process means that the battery is only charged to capacity, and when full, it is protected from over-charging using its unique pulse maintenance feature. Whilst in pulse maintenance mode, the charger lets the battery naturally self discharge down to 11.7V before repeating the charging process, effectively 'exercising' the battery. This cycle will be repeated until removed.
Börje Maleus, Business Development Manager at CTEK, commented: "With the ever more demanding and sensitive electrical equipment in modern vehicles, effective battery care is of the utmost importance to avoid the expense and inconvenience of Battery Failure. Battery Charging and conditioning will significantly reduce the risk of such events occurring, as well as optimising the lifetime of batteries. CTEK's chargers are also ideal for keeping batteries fully charged whilst a vehicle is in a dormant state, as is evident in many classic cars and motorcycles that are only used in the summer."
All CTEK smart chargers are reverse polarity protected and spark proof to ensure the safety of the user and also to protect the vehicles electrical equipment.
