Bat­tery charger for start/ stop ve­hi­cles


Con­sumers pur­chas­ing late model cars, SUVs and 4WDs with start stop tech­nol­ogy may be miss­ing out on the promised fuel ef­fi­cien­cies due to be­ing un­aware of the need to reg­u­larly recharge their car bat­ter­ies. Start stop tech­nol­ogy is designed to cut fuel costs and ve­hi­cle emis­sions by au­to­mat­i­cally switch­ing off your en­gine when your ve­hi­cle is at a stand­still. This, com­bined with power hun­gry tech­nol­ogy like the lat­est en­ter­tain­ment and GPS sys­tems, means ve­hi­cle bat­ter­ies are un­der in­creas­ing pres­sure. To ad­dress this is­sue bat­tery man­age­ment spe­cial­ist CTEK has de­vel­oped a ded­i­cated CT5 Start Stop bat­tery charger. The CTEK CT5 Start Stop is a com­pact, en­ergy ef­fi­cient, low emis­sion charger suit­able for all 12v lead acid bat­ter­ies (wet, MF, CA/CA, AGM and GEL) with a ca­pac­ity of 14-130Ah, and is op­ti­mised for the AGM and EFB bat­ter­ies used in start stop tech­nol­ogy. Priced at just $177.87 RRP, it comes with a five-year war­ranty and a host of safety fea­tures that pro­tect your bat­tery, your ve­hi­cle and you, in­clud­ing non-spark­ing re­verse po­lar­ity pro­tec­tion and short cir­cuit proof­ing. The CTEK CT5 Start Stop goes hand in hand with the CTEK CTX Bat­tery Sense ($99 RRP) a patented Blue­tooth en­abled bat­tery mon­i­tor that lets you track the sta­tus of your bat­tery via a smart­phone app and there’s a range of ac­ces­sories in­clud­ing a mount­ing bracket and a bumper pro­tec­tor and a 2.5m ex­ten­sion ca­ble that make life even sim­pler.
