A Smarter And Smaller Battery Charger

I know that the choice of small battery chargers is very wide and most of us think that they work the same way to get the same results. False. Some are smarter at charging your batteries the correct way to optimize their charge, their performance and their life.

Adopted by the most prestigious car manufacturers and by Harley-Davidson, CTEK battery chargers use a unique charge algorithm, go through 8 steps to constantly read and communicate with your battery, charging only to its direct needs and therefore avoiding any possibility of incorrectly charging the battery. Furthermore, by ensuring the battery is conditioned as well as charged, your batteries last significantly longer.

Moreover, each CTEK Smart Battery Charger regulates mains voltage to protect any sensitive electrical equipment. In addition they are very small, idiot proof(spark-free, short-circuit-proof design incorporates a feature that prevents reverse polarity), and almost indestructible (yes, you can ride on it!).

    I have always ran a battery tender jr on my bikes, all year around. I wounder what the big difference is here vs big hype?? All for the price tag of double or more.

    Maybe I just have luck with my batteries but my last battery lasted from 2006 to February of 2010. I still use it on my riding lawn mower, just didn’t have enough amps to turn the engine and fire off the ignition and fuel injection in 30 and below weather. Only thing I do is ride the bike on a reguler basis (at least 5 times a week to work and back and hopefully a few hundred miles on the weekend). When I am deployed or gone for long periods I unhook the battery ground. So far every time I get home I just hook it back up and it fires right up.

    Cyrill, this is the same Technology that has been in the Engine room on many Boats/Yachts. The old Battery Chargers were made up of about 150 Lbs. worth of parts and the new state of art Charger’s weigh about 6-8 lbs. This Charger is a great Charger.Battery Tenders are Old Technology. Their small Water proof Tender weighs about 1 Lb and that is for 1 amp, this Ctek is probably 4 oz. and has a Brain in it that is state of the art!

    The new ones will maintain proper voltage for an AGM battery, and also help de-sulfate batteries that are nearly gone. I use battery tenders but they’re not ideal for AGMs. I’m going to upgrade the next time I buy a charger.
