Finding the right car battery charger for you

A car battery charger shouldn´t just be taking up space in your garage or only used when your vehicle won´t start. Your battery should be cared for like any other part of your car and using the right battery charger can help you do this.

Ctek Charger Problems

All batteries need charging from time to time and CTEK´s wide range of chargers are suitable for conditioning, charging and maintaining all types of lead-acid batteries. A 12V car battery charger is likely to meet your needs and there are quite a few to choose from.

A smart car battery charger doesn’t just charge, it also performs other functions, such as reconditioning to prolong the life of the battery and keep it in optimum condition. A CTEK smart battery charger will give your battery a new lease of life, for example if sulphur has built up on the plates inside the battery, or if it’s suffering from discharge because of infrequent or short journey use,

  • MXS 3.8 – One of CTEK´s entry level models, it provides all round charging through a 7-step charging cycle that includes a desulphation feature and maintenance charging.
  • MXS 5.0 – A state-of-the-art 8-step charger with a special reconditioning function. It also features battery diagnosis so you know the state of your battery’s charge and whether it can hold its charge properly. As with all CTEK chargers, it has an optimised charging mode for when more power is needed during cold weather.
  • MXS 7.0 – A great universal charger with slightly more power, including a battery capacity of 14-150Ah up to 225Ah for maintenance. This is an 8-step charger with a power supply mode so the battery can be disconnected without losing or damaging the vehicle’s important electronic configurations.

These are just three of CTEK´s smart battery chargers.

Our chargers don´t need any specialist knowledge and they can be safely left connected for long periods of time – even months – as they keep your battery maintained.

And because they’re fully automatic, reverse polarity protected and spark proof, we can guarantee you peace of mind whichever CTEK car battery charger you choose.

What is it?

Whether you own a modern car or a classic, a battery charger is an essential bit of kit — especially during the winter months. When temperatures drop, not only are more cranking amps required to start our motor, but we also ask our batteries to work harder. Lights, heaters, fans on full to demist screens, heated seats (fancy)…

In fact, turning a car over in the depths of winter can take as much as 80 per cent of the battery’s charge. And if your battery isn’t fully charged, then you don’t need to be Carol Vorderman to do the maths. Luckily, the latest generation of smart battery chargers are on hand to solve this problem. Swedish manufacturer CTEK leads the way in this field, with its range of fit and forget devices.

What’s it like?

Unassumingly packaged, in the box, we get the charger (which is sturdy and hard-wearing) and two different kinds of clamps — traditional crocodile clips that you attach to the battery and 'eyelets' that can be left in situ for regular use. There’s a bag to keep everything together. Oh, and a five-year warranty.

If you have never used a battery charger before and you’re worried about safety, don’t be — unlike many other battery chargers, this won’t spark when you put the clamps on. It’s surge protected. And it won’t short if you accidentally touch the clamps together. The device is reverse polarity protected, so you won’t do any damage if you wire it up to the battery with the terminals the wrong way round.

It’s not just car batteries it can charge either. It has a setting that means it can nurse batteries for lawnmowers and motorcycles back to full health. That's not bad for the £80 retail price, especially considering it can often be found for less than that online.

It’s also incredibly easy to use. Simply hook it up, and let it do its thing. Science fans rejoice because CTEK has an eight-step charging programme. This begins by cleaning the battery, before giving it a lighter charge until it’s at about 10 per cent. If the battery can accept the charge, it’ll go ahead and give it everything until it’s about 80 per cent full. Now it tapers off until it’s 99 per cent full.

But it’s not done yet, the analysis phase checks the battery can hold the charge before the recondition phase checks its form (this bit’s ideal for batteries that were mostly or very dead). The last phase is all about maintenance to make sure that your battery stays in top condition if you’re laying your vehicle up.

We told you it was smart. And we haven’t even mentioned the inbuilt temperature sensor that adjusts the charge rate to suit conditions and maximise efficiency…

Should I buy one?

Personally, we wouldn’t be without a battery charger and for £65 (and a five-year warranty) we reckon this is a tough product to beat. It’s sturdy and it works well. We’ve bought several batteries back from the dead. If your battery is completely flat, then you may have to jumpstart it before the unit recognises its attached to a battery, but after that the MXS 5.0 just does its thing.

It’s a quick worker as well. Obviously, how quick it is depends on the state of your battery and its size but this is one of the quickest chargers out there. For example, an 8Ah battery will be 80% charged (and so ready to use) in about eight hours, while a 60Ah battery will be ready in 12.

Plus, the opportunities for leaving it connected make it ideal for car owners who garage their pride and joy over the winter, or those who don’t clock up quite enough miles to recharge the battery over the course of a weekend.
