LONDON, November 4, 2011 -

Checking tyres, brakes and oil levels are seen as routine maintenance for any vehicle, but many overlook one of the key contributory factors to vehicle unreliability - battery failure.  Battery failure can occur at the most inconvenient time and cause expense and frustration, however, CTEK, a leading global brand in the care and maintenance of vehicle batteries, says its new generation smart battery chargers means battery maintenance has never been easier.

Jan-Ulf Soderberg, Head of Brand and Marketing at CTEK, commented: “Battery failure occurs for a variety of reasons. It can occur if the car hasn’t been started up for a period of time, the headlamps are left on or air conditioning used when the engine is switched off or simply during cold weather.  In any case, it’s an annoying event that we could all do without, but it is completely avoidable.  Motorists have been wary about the use of battery chargers before now - worried about the consequences of over or under charging. However, the new generation in smart car battery chargers negates these problems.”

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.  The battery is brought to its optimum charge level as the charger reads the exact charge levels present, so it can deliver the exact amount of charge needed.

Jan-Ulf continued, “Our vast range of battery chargers are simple-to-use as they don’t undercharge, which can result in the battery losing capacity until is eventually becomes unusable.  They also won’t overcharge - a common issue and one that can be quite serious issue as it can lead to boiling of the battery,” he added.

CTEK’s range of smart chargers can also be used in situ, meaning there is no need to disconnect and remove the battery.

CTEK has a large range of 12v battery chargers, the most commonly used charger voltage used for most standard vehicles, 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.
