CTEK Launches D250S Dual for Comprehensive Charging on the Move

LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM--(Marketwire - June 27, 2011) - CTEK, a leading global brand in the care and maintenance of vehicle batteries, has launched the D250S Dual, a new 20A DC/DC on board Battery Charging system that will maximise the performance and increase the life of leisure batteries.

With many on board charging systems lacking the sophistication required to charge leisure batteries beyond around 80%, batteries are at a severe risk of the onset of sulphation and stratification, the two biggest battery killers. The CTEK D250S Dual combats this problem by using patented CTEK technology deployed in their award winning mains chargers - to condition, 100% charge and maintain all types of lead-acid leisure batteries, thereby maximising performance and extending life.

Drawing its energy from the vehicle alternator, this small yet powerful 20A charger continuously determines the direct needs of the battery, subsequently delivering a safe, powerful charge whilst making sure that it doesn't damage the alternator or overcharge the battery. The optional solar panel connector enables additional maintenance charging of both the leisure battery and starter battery when parked or on the move in daylight. The D250S Dual automatically switches to the solar resource when it can generate enough energy.

Jan-Ulf Söderberg, Head of Brand and Marketing at CTEK commented: "Only charging a leisure battery up to 80% capacity means that the battery will be cycled more often than necessary which will increase stratification and as such, drastically reducing capacity. Even worse, sulphation will also occur, reducing capacity event further and shortening battery life significantly. Consequently, Battery Maintenance is essential and by simply using the D250S Dual, when on the move, drivers are able to safely condition and quickly bring their batteries up to and maintain 100% charge. Our research shows that the D250S can extend the life of the battery by as much as three times as well as maximising its capacity."
