Battery Life is Severely Depleted by Developments in Automotive Technology, Says CTEK



by Steve Barclay

Developments in automotive technology has meant that unless batteries are properly maintained and cared for, their lifespan can be severely reduced, CTEK, the leading worldwide innovator and supplier of lead acid Battery Chargers, has warned.

Be it adding to the drivers comfort or attempting to reduce carbon output, automotive technology is continually developing at apace. Unfortunately, despite slight advances, developments in battery technology is a lot slower and as a result, many experience a shortened lifespan due to the additional strain placed upon them.

Accordingly, Battery Charging is an essential part of modern motoring if drivers aren't going to experience the expense and inconvenience of a flat battery.

Jan-Ulf Soderberg, Head of Brand and Marketing at CTEK commented: "Developments in automotive technology is certainly a great thing for the industry but it's not without consequence. However, with careful battery management, these potential pitfalls can be easily avoided. A smart 12V Battery Charger will not only avoid battery failure, it will in fact increase a battery's life.

"A CTEK Multi XS 4003 for example, maximises the performance of lead-acid batteries by determining accurate readings of a battery's charge and ensuring the appropriate action is taken to optimise the battery for use, thereby prolonging a battery's life to the benefit of both the vehicle owner and the environment."

Indeed, the patented CTEK system maintains maximum charge levels to extend battery life and, most importantly, ensure that vehicles are able to start first time, every time. With each product intended for unsupervised use, foolproof to connect, spark proof and reverse-polarity protected, there is no need to regularly connect and disconnect batteries. Moreover, each CTEK Smart Charger regulates changes in mains voltage to protect any sensitive electrical and hi-fi equipment.
