We were excited to be joined by some special guests today at the preview of the CS FREE, our exciting new portable battery charger with adaptive boost!

The CS FREE officially launches in stores from March.

The CS FREE means you are free from being tied to a power outlet, it is a truly portable battery charger, so you can keep your 12V lead-acid and lithium (12V LiFePO4) batteries charged wherever you go. For longer-term maintenance charging you can even charge using power from a solar panel kit or a separate service battery, and with USB-C and USB-A outputs for charging laptops, smartphones, tablets etc it’s the ultimate 12V power bank for your vehicle!

The CS FREE has an internal battery that takes less than an hour to fully charge through the unit’s fast USB-C input and, when fully charged, it will hold its charge for up to a year, making it ideal for keeping stored in the vehicle for when you need it.

The CS FREE, is the first in a new generation of CTEK battery chargers. Our Voice of the Customer programme identified that consumers wanted much more freedom from mains power as well as being able to quickly get going from a flat battery. The CS FREE meets these needs – it’s multifunctional portable charging that sets you free - simply charge it up, take it with you and use it anywhere.

Suitable for use on cars, motorcycles, leisure vehicles, vans, and boats, the CS FREE is easy to use. There are no modes to select – just connect and the CS FREE will do the rest. If you are charging a flat battery, a simple LED displays show you when your battery has enough power to start your vehicle and there is also a countdown display that shows you how long there is left till your battery is fully charged.

It’s a truly portable battery charger, so if you park your car somewhere without access to mains power you can still charge. Using the supplied mains socket you can use the CS FREE just like any other mains powered CTEK charger – it will deliver a 5A charging and maintenance programme for both lead-acid and lithium batteries. But if you have a vehicle stored for longer periods of time and don’t have access to mains power well, we have also launched some handy accessories to enable 5A maintenance charging via solar panel or a 12V service battery.

You can safely store and transport the CS FREE using a tough and robust storage bag or wall mount the CS FREE using the CS Wall Mount unique mounting system – both available to purchase separately.
