    Keep your START/STOP battery in peak condition

    Fast Start/Stop charging

    The CT5 START/STOP battery charger and maintainer has been specially designed to charge and maintain batteries in Start/Stop vehicles.

    Start/Stop technology is great for the environment but it can put a considerable strain on your battery, especially if it’s in an older car. By keeping the battery fully charged, you can take full advantage of all the Start/Stop technology benefits, such as better fuel efficiency and lower CO2 emissions. If you only make short journeys, use the CT5 START/STOP once a month to keep your battery in peak condition. And if you’re going away on holiday, just connect the charger to the battery to make sure your car’s ready to go when you return.

      ;*;Fully optimized for cars with Start/Stop technology, e.g. AGM and EFB batteries ;*;No buttons to press – fully automatic charging ;*;5-year warranty ;*;Simple to use with an easy to understand display ;*;Reverse polarity protected

      FAQ
      I have an AGM battery but my car doesn't have a start-stop system. Can I still charge the battery with a START/STOP charger?   ×
      Yes, you can.
      Is the START/STOP a simpler charger than the MXS 5.0? It has only three lights while the MXS 5.0 has eight.   ×
      No. On the MXS 5.0 a light shows for every step, and the voltage and power curve is shown above and below the lights. On the START/STOP we've chosen to reduce the number of lights and instead just show which phase the charger is currently in – Check, Charge or Care. START/STOP has no programme selection. Instead, when it is in contact with a battery it starts as soon as it's plugged into a wall socket.
      The charger has switched to error mode. What could the problem be?   ×
      1. First check that the charger is connected correctly. Check that the positive clamp (or eyelet) is connected to the battery's positive pole (or the positive charger terminal) and the negative clamp (or eyelet) is connected to the chassis (or the negative charger terminal), and not the other way round.

      2. To exclude the possibility of a problem with the charger, test it on another battery.

      3. The charger may have discovered a problem inside the battery. The charger will try repeatedly to continue, but if it cannot, it will switch over to error mode. Depending on where in the programme the charger has stopped, it is possible to identify a number of causes. If the Check light and Error indicator (!) are both lit at the same time, try restarting the charging cycle by unplugging the charger from the outlet and plugging it in again. If it stops again at the same point, the battery is sulphated and probably needs to be replaced. There can be other problems with the battery that mean that the charger can't go beyond Check mode.
      If the charger enters error mode when "Charge" is lit, it is due to a problem with the battery's ability to retain charge. This can also happen if the loads on the battery are too great, making the voltage decrease too quickly. Disconnect these loads and try again.
      Can I charge my battery through the cigarette lighter socket?   ×
      If your cigarette lighter socket is connected to the battery even when the ignition isn't on, you can charge the battery that way. You need a CONNECT Cig plug or a INDICATOR Cig plug for this.
      Does START/STOP have temperature compensation?   ×
      Yes.
      How do I know the battery is fully charged?   ×
      When the green "Care" light shows, the battery is fully charged.
      How should I connect the charger? My car has BMS (Battery Management System)   ×
      Connect the red clamp (or eyelet) to the battery's positive (+) pole. You can connect the black negative (-) clamp (or eyelet) to the chassis or a recommended earthing point.
      What's new about the START/STOP charger?   ×
      START/STOP has been developed for modern cars with a start-stop system. It's simple to use as it doesn't have a programme button (mode button) – it starts working as soon as it's connected to a battery and is plugged into a wall socket. It's also easy to understand, as it only has three LEDs which show which phase it's currently in: Check, Charge or Care.
      Can I use the charger during the winter? It doesn't have a winter setting.   ×
      Yes, you can use the charger during the winter, as it has an inbuilt temperature sensor which regulates the output voltage depending on the ambient temperature.
      Can I charge a standard car battery that is not installed in a start-stop car?   ×
      Yes. START/STOP is optimized for use with 12 V EFB (Enhanced Flooded Battery) and AGM batteries, but it can charge ordinary 12 V lead-acid batteries as well.
      What do the three stages on the charger mean?   ×
      Check mode means that the charger is checking the battery’s state of health and preparing to charge. If the battery is in good condition, the Check stage doesn't take more than a few moments.
      The Charge mode LED shows while the charger is filling the battery, and Care shows when the battery is fully charged and the charger has automatically switched over to maintenance charging.
      How many amps does START/STOP provide?   ×
      It provides a maximum of 3.8 A and varies according to the needs of the battery.
