A car battery charger for every occasion

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. The car battery should get the same care as any part of the car and to use the right car battery charger may help you to do this.

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 will probably meet the needs you have and there are a few to that you can 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.
