CTEK CHARGERS were the first to employ 'SMART' technology which uses 'SWITCH MODE' electronics (found in computer technology) making them more flexible and accurate than 'linear' transformers ; this enables CTEK chargers to have dedicated cycles for different battery technologies and problems, and also allows them to be small yet powerful.

CTEK fully automatic chargers analyse, fix, charge, and maintain all types of lead acid batteries.

The CTEK unique 8 step charging process consists of

1. Delsulphation - Detects sulphated batteries, pulsing current and voltage removes sulphate from the lead plates of the battery restoring battery capacity.

2. Soft Start - Tests if the battery can accept charge. This step prevents charging proceeding with a defective battery.

3. Bulk - Charging with maximum current until approximately 80% of the battery capacity.

4. Absorption - (battery ready to use) - Charging with declining current to maximize up to 100% capacity.

5. Analyse - Tests if the battery can hold charge. Batteries that cannot hold charge may need to be replaced.

6. Recond - Choose Recond programme to add this step to the charging process. The voltage increases during this process to create controlled gassing in the battery.

7. Float - (fully charged) - Maintaining the battery voltage at a maximum level by providing a constant voltage charge.

8. Pulse - Maintaining the battery at 95-100% capacity. The charger monitors the battery voltage and gives a pulse charge when necessary to keep the battery fully charged.

Key benefits include ; Safer to use - spark proof, reverse polarity proof and no need for the battery to be disconnected from vehicle, regulated charge, fully automatic, shockproof, weatherproof, dustproof, approved for outdoor use (depending on model), works in temperature from -20 to +50, extended warranty up to 5 years on some models, endorsed by prestige car manufacturers.
