CTEK, Suitable for a Multi-Vehicle Owner

LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM--(Marketwire - Sept. 22, 2010) - Many people own more than one vehicle, maybe an everyday car and then a classic or sports car for the weekend, or perhaps a motorcycle. No matter what the vehicle is, if it has a lead-acid battery, CTEK can look after it and help with effective multi-vehicle battery management.

Advanced technologies are helping modern vehicles evolve on many levels including safety, economy and comfort but as a result, huge strain is been placed on the battery. Consequently, careful and effective management is absolutely essential to avoid failure.

CTEK's Comfort Indicator is a device simply attaches to the battery via eyelets or clamps and uses a simple traffic light system to give an immediate indication to the state of the battery, thus allowing the battery that needs it most to be charged. Using male/female connections, any CTEK 24V or 12V Battery Charger can be easily connected to the comfort indicator to commence charging.

By way of a patented multi-stage charging process, CTEK Battery Chargers, as well as maintaining and reviving batteries, also controls battery 'ripple' that, if too high, can be harmful to the battery and the vehicles electronics.

Ripple describes the quality of the current and voltage. A high current ripple heats the battery and shortens its lifespan. A linear charger has a ripple of between 70% and 400% which is far higher than the maximum of 5% for a modern sealed battery. Additionally, high voltage ripple can damage vehicle electronics and other equipment that is attached to the battery.

However, a CTEK Smart Battery Charger delivers both current and voltage with an extremely low ripple of just 2% so, the battery gains a long service life and, there's no risk to the battery or any sensitive vehicle electronics.

As such, with a little help from CTEK, drivers will never have to worry about facing the problems and inconveniences caused by a flat battery
