Stockholm, Sweden (PRWEB) September 21, 2012
At the international trade fair, Automechanika, leading manufacturer of battery chargers and extras, CTEK, launched three new exciting accessories.
The CTEK Bumper, Comfort Indicator Cig Plug and Comfort Connect Extension Cable were announced at the event, held in Frankfurt between 11th and 16th September; the Cable will be available in January 2013 whilst the other two products can be purchased from this October.
Each product has been designed to provide vehicle owners with increased flexibility and convenience when undertaking their battery maintenance routine. In particular, the Comfort Indicator Cig Plug, which connects to the cigarette socket, allows car owners to identify the state of charge of their battery without lifting the bonnet. Furthermore, it can be attached to any CTEK 12V battery charger (up to 7A) via the CTEK Comfort Connect system that has been incorporated into the model, enabling easy access to the battery for it to be charged.
The Plug uses a green, yellow and red ‘traffic light’ method, meaning consumers can ascertain the charge level simply and immediately; red indicates a charge of less than 80 per cent, meaning the battery should be charged immediately to avoid permanent damage, yellow recommends a charge as the level is between 80 and 90 per cent and green tells the car owner that no attention is required.
Owners of CTEK battery chargers, from 3.6A to 5A, can protect their products with the new CTEK Bumper. The protective cover safeguards the charger if accidentally dropped and shields against scrapes and scratches; the Bumper also helps the charger to grip when placed on a slippery or sloping surface.
In the event of a CTEK smart battery charger being located away from the vehicle, the new 2.5 metre Comfort Connect Extension Cable provides the extra reach required. The Cable is suitable to use with all CTEK chargers up to 10A and multiple cables can also be connected together to provide a longer extension.
