CTEK Launches The Cig-Socket For Charging Without Mains Power

LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM--(Marketwire - Oct. 5, 2010) - CTEK, a leading global brand in the care and maintenance of vehicle batteries, has continued to expand its range of battery chargers and accessories to ensure that battery maintenance is a quick, simple and effective process.

All of CTEK's battery chargers are fully automatic, spark proof and reverse polarity protected, meaning they are easy and safe to use – simply 'plug and play'. To assist further, CTEK also has a range of accessories available, such as the Comfort Indicator.

The Comfort Indicator is device that is attached to the battery either via clamps or eyelets and gives an instant indication to the state of charge of the battery using a simple traffic light system. As a result, knowing when a battery needs to be charged is a case of just looking at the colour of the flashing light on the Indicator unit.

The latest development in CTEK's range of accessories is the Cig-Socket adapter, a device that again can be attached to the battery the Comfort Connector or Comfort Indicator and allows any 12V auxiliary equipment, such as Sat-Navs, heated motorcycle gloves, mobile phones etc. to be charged or supplied with power whilst on the move through a cigarette socket.

The Cig Socket adapter offers a safe and secure way to draw up to 10A of power from the battery when on the move or in an emergency charging situation when parked – to charge a mobile 'phone for example. When not required it can be disconnected from the Comfort Connector or Comfort Indicator and stored, allowing a CTEK smart battery charger to be fitted in its place to restore any charge and maintain the battery in a healthy state.

Peter White, Sales and Marketing Manager for CTEK UK, commented: "The Cig Socket adapter is a simple device but one that offers a host of benefits. It is a quick safe and simple way to add connectivity to your 12V system and provide more ways to utilise your 12V power pack either on the move or when parked."
