London, UK (PRWEB) November 15, 2011
CTEK, a leading global brand in the care and maintenance of vehicle batteries, is once again celebrating after its MXS 5.0 12V Battery Charger was awarded with the prestigious title of ‘Best Buy’ by Auto Bild, the renowned and respected German automotive magazine which, including foreign editions such as Auto Express in the UK and Auto Plus in France, is published in over 36 countries.
To ensure that the tests were fair and unbiased, the tests were undertaken in collaboration with the society for Technical Supervision, the GTÜ.
The CTEK MXS 5.0 Smart Battery Charger was pitted against its rivals in a series of demanding performance tests including charging a deeply discharged battery and various safety and drop tests. Also judged on its accessories, ease of use and practicality, the charger excelled in every category and scored an impressive 452 points from a potential 500.
Jan-ulf Soderberg, Head of Brand and Marketing at CTEK, commented: “We are elated with the Auto Bild ‘Best Buy’ award. CTEK continually invests heavily in both time and money to ensure that its technology remains at the forefront of innovation and its chargers the most capable, safe and easy to use currently available. It’s awards like this which make it all worthwhile. Importantly, all of the battery chargers in the test were under 100 euros and for the MXS 5.0 to win by such a margin really highlights the value for money aspect of the product.
The MXS 5.0 is a consumer charger with the capabilities to match a professional alternative. As with all CTEK chargers prevents Battery Failure by maximising their performance. By determining accurate readings from the battery, the MXS 5.0 will ensure that an appropriate charging and conditioning cycle is delivered to optimise and maintain the battery for use, thereby prolonging the life of the battery.
The patented CTEK eight-stage battery charging system maintains and conditions the battery and can be left attached indefinitely without risk of over, or under charging. Intended for unsupervised use, the MXS 5.0 is simple to connect, spark proof and reverse-polarity protected to protect the user and also the battery. Furthermore, there is no need to disconnect the battery before use as it regulates mains voltage to protect ECU settings.
