Battery Maintenance Presents an Easy Way to Save Money, Says CTEK

LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM--(Marketwire - May 3, 2011) - With the Libyan crisis forcing the price of petrol to potentially record highs, the cost of driving has increased exponentially and even caused many to stop driving all together. As a result, any savings are gratefully received by the driving community and proper battery maintenance is an easy way for motorists to avoid the expense, and inconvenience, of premature battery failure, says CTEK.

The cost of all goods is soaring with the present economic status of the entire world, and motoring is no exception.

It has been reported that petrol in the UK could reach as much as £1.50 per gallon by the end of August if prices continue to rise at their current rate. Battery Protection, however, is one way motorists can save money in the long-term.

A regular battery charge from a 12V Battery Charger as part of a regular maintenance routine could extend battery life by as much as 300%, saving consumers up to £200.00 over the extended lifespan of the battery

Jan-Ulf Söderberg of CTEK commented: "Including a battery charge in a maintenance routine can save motorists a fortune if done regularly. By using a Smart Battery Charger to protect and maintain batteries, motorists can keep their batteries healthy and avoid expensive replacement costs. Here at CTEK we are doing everything we can to highlight this to motorists in an effort to dramatically reduce the amount of money that is needlessly spent each year on replacement batteries."

Battery charging has traditionally been seen as a distress activity but with the technology available from CTEK it can become a regular service routine with no disruption to other maintenance activities and the benefits in vehicle reliability and cost saving mean that investing in the right equipment will give a payback in weeks.

Jan continued: "The price of keeping a car on the road and well maintained has never been so expensive. With this unlikely to change drastically in the coming months, drivers should contemplate looking after the internal workings of their vehicles to save money in the long run."
