CTEK Wins Best Battery Charger Test From Auto Express Magazine

CTEK Wins Best Battery Charger Test From Auto Express Magazine

The test winner was the CTEK CT5 TIME TO GO charger, due to launch in North America soon.

CTEK, a leading global brand in the care and maintenance of vehicle batteries, is celebrating after taking home the Auto Express magazine’s “Best Battery Charger” award for the fourth time. Auto Express is the United Kingdom’s largest-selling automotive weekly, with more than 30,000 paid subscribers.

The test winner was the CTEK CT5 TIME TO GO charger, due to launch in North America very shortly. This new CTEK charger takes a different approach by telling users how long it will take until the battery is charged and ready to go, highlighting that CTEK continues to lead the way in product development.

In addition to being the most efficient charger in the test, the CTEK charger was commended for its safety and build features.

”If battery chargers are a mystery to you, this is the one to buy. It has all the various charging stages of other CTEK units, but doesn’t confuse you with them. Instead, there’s a more useful progress display indicating when to try to start the car after a flat battery,” said Kim Adams of Auto Express in making the award announcement.

“We continue to see new entries into this category and we are absolutely delighted to win this highly prestigious accolade once again,” said Bobbie DuMelle, executive vice-president of CTEK North America. “Maximizing battery performance isn’t just our motto – it’s right at the heart of everything we do and every product we make.”

DuMelle continued, “The award is testament not only to the unrivalled technology contained within our complete range of consumer chargers, but also to the safety and usability of CTEK chargers that today’s consumer demands. It means we push the boundaries of research and development to bring new battery charging technologies to the market. Our customers expect us to listen to them and constantly innovate. The new CT5 TIME TO GO is a good example of this; consumers with active lifestyles have been asking for a charger that will tell them how long before the battery is charged.”

DuMelle noted that batteries are becoming increasingly advanced and sensitive, being used more frequently and under more demanding conditions. As a result, battery care is a fast growing issue, particularly as life expectancy drops rapidly due to inadequate maintenance.

CTEK chargers condition and maintain all types of 12V lead-acid batteries including maintenance-free types and all chemistries including wet, calcium, GEL, AGM and EFB – the last two types used in Start/Stop vehicles. All CTEK products are fully automatic, foolproof to connect, spark proof and reverse-polarity protected for user safety, and come with a five-year manufacturers warranty.
