Easy Charging with CTEK Smart Chargers

CTEK Chargers maximise the life of your battery by maintaining the optimal voltage of your battery because your battery constantly leaks energy. It's like a bucket with a hole in the bottom so by using a maintenance charger you reverse the losses and keep the battery in a fully charged state.

When a battery is discharged and left discharged you end up with a resistance to recharge (sometimes referred to as memory) it's really called sulphation which insulates the plates from absorbing the acid which energizes the battery. A charger is used to break down the sulphation and charge the battery from its flat state of charge.

CTEK chargers perform maintenance and charging functions because of the 8 stages of charging that are programmed to accommodate all scenarios. But they can also perform them individually. If you turn the charger off after 12 hours it would have charged a battery but it wouldn't have maintained it. If the battery is already charged and you connect a CTEK charger you can maintain a battery for years without any user intervention (other than checking water levels).
