Welcome to Element 82

Welcome to our dedicated CTEK information portal, Element 82 have been distributing CTEK since its introduction to New Zealand in 2005. With 15 years under our belt, nobody in the country knows more about the range or its history than us. We have seen 4 new releases updates bringing us to the current CT5 models. We have distributed Keepower brand chargers which were such a good product CTEK purchased them and integrated their internals into the current Professional Series chargers. Today we provide you with the largest range of products and accessories all held in stock. All under one roof and all available to trade customers, OEM's and end-users.

If you purchase from us, you are supported by our support team and CTEK Sweden. If you purchase online from a box store you are supported by that retailer. We offer everyday low pricing that reflects the good value, ongoing support, and the ability for us to continue to operate as a small business that's New Zealand owned and operated.
