Regularly testing and charging your car or motorcycle battery can make the difference between having an annoying and problematic breakdown or not

The leading battery charging brand CTEK has launched a new product in its consumer range, helping owners of cars and motorcycles to test battery health and charge their batteries more effectively and easily. Available at the start of December, just in time for Christmas and the winter weather that is notorious for affecting a battery’s performance, the CTEK MXS 5.0 TEST & CHARGE is a desirable addition to any vehicle owner’s maintenance tool kit.
Battery testing and charging is simple with the CTEK MXS 5.0 TEST & CHARGE, which is suitable for all 12V lead-acid batteries. It provides fast and accurate testing results determining the battery’s state of charge, its start power and alternator performance. After it has presented the user with the battery’s complete picture of health, it maximises the performance of the battery through the state-of-the-art charging and conditioning cycles. It establishes whether the battery is capable of taking and holding a charge through two stages of charge analysis.
Battery maintenance is more important than ever due to the increasing demands placed on the power source by a vehicle’s complex technologies; the CTEK MXS 5.0 TEST & CHARGE incorporates all of the award winning features of the popular CTEK 5.0 12V battery charger and makes sure peak power performance is delivered every time the vehicle is started.
The charger automatically manages the desulphation stage to break down the sulphur that has built up on the battery’s plates and its RECOND mode eliminates acid stratification to revive a deeply discharged battery. Furthermore, the patented float and pulse maintenance feature will keep any battery charged to its optimum throughout the connection, even if the charger is connected for days, months or throughout the whole winter.
Jan-Ulf Soderberg, head of brand and marketing at CTEK, commented: “The battery’s state of charge is determined through the battery’s voltage, but interpreting its overall heath is more demanding and the CTEK MXS 5.0 TEST & CHARGE is a vehicle owner’s perfect companion if they wish to properly care for and maintain their battery.
“Regularly testing and charging your car or motorcycle battery can make the difference between having an annoying and problematic breakdown or not, or even the cost and inconvenience of purchasing a new battery. Many people don’t know that taking regular action can prolong the life of a vehicle’s battery by years so, as a Christmas gift, the CTEK MXS 5.0 TEST & CHARGE is not only useful, but educational!”
