London, UK (PRWEB) October 30, 2011
An annual car survey carried out by Which? revealed this month that rather than style, economy or performance being at the top of the list for car owners, in fact, reliability was the most considered factor. However, with dead car batteries being a major cause of unreliability, effective Battery Maintenance, according to CTEK, a leading global brand in the care and maintenance of vehicle batteries.
The inconvenience and expense caused by a flat battery is frustrating but completely avoidable. A new generation in smart car battery chargers means car owners no longer have to worry about under or overcharging. Unlike many on the market, CTEK’s Smart Battery Charger range reacts only to the needs of the battery meaning that it can charge, condition and prolong the life of all types of car battery.
According to Jan-Ulf Södenberg, Head of Brand and Marketing at CTEK, “It’s interesting that in today’s car market where you’d think that aesthetics, performance and being eco-friendly or economical would be the driving factors behind car choices, to see that car reliability is the number one factor. However, many may not consider that unmaintained batteries can lead to unreliability and this can happen at any time – usually the most inconvenient time. A simple-to-use smart battery charger can negate this annoying occurrence by bringing the battery to its optimum charge levels without undercharging, or worse still, overcharging – leading to boiling of the battery.”
CTEK also highlights the perils of undercharging, which results in an incompletely charged battery that will lose more and more capacity until it gradually becomes unusable.
“Our smart chargers are designed to read the battery power accurately so that the correct amount of charge levels are given. The battery can also be charged in situ meaning there is no need to disconnect the battery,” he added.
A 12V Battery Charger is the most commonly used charger voltage used for most standard vehicles, and CTEK has a comprehensive range including the Compact 0.8A, the MXS 3.6 and the MX 5.0. All of the battery chargers in the CTEK range are easy to use, fully automatic, require no specialist knowledge for use and come with a five year warranty.
