Battery chargers - Battery Maintainers - Maintenance Chargers - 12 Volt - 24 Volt - 6 Volt -12 Volt & 24 Volt - Consumer & Professional Series Smart Chargers

As vehicle technology continues to develop, more and more strain is placed on the battery. As a result, battery charging has become an essential part of car maintenance which should be considered as important as checking tyre pressures and oil levels. Your car service now commonly includes battery testing and or recharging.

On your boat, regular maintenance charging is essential for the prolonged health of your batteries. This may include generator charging or solar charging when not connected to shore power.

With your motorhome the start battery is often neglected as your solar primarily charges your house batteries. CTEK addressed this issue over 10 years ago with the D250S and Smartpass. These models now include much of the same features with Lead Acid - Flooded, Calcium, AGM, Gel or Lithium charge profiles as well using the D250SE and Smartpass 120S.

There are various types of battery chargers currently available – all with smart stages that include maintenance or trickle charger technology so you can leave the chargers on 24/7. Smart chargers present a much safer and more efficient way of maintaining and prolonging the life of the battery than they once did a long time ago, they are also much more efficient and eco-friendly.

For the workshop we have a professional series of chargers and accessories to help maintain a battery or for use with ECU flashing from 40A up to 120A charging current from the PRO120.
