Smart Charger

Muscle Car Review - - New Products -

CTEK’s new MXS 5.0 Smart Charger has an au­to­matic sen­sor that mon­i­tors the tem­per­a­ture of the elec­tro-chem­i­cal re­ac­tion tak­ing place dur­ing bat­tery charg­ing to en­sure that the du­ra­tion and rate of charge are ex­actly what’s needed. Ac­cord­ing to CTEK, cold bat­ter­ies need a higher charge volt­age in or­der to push cur­rent into the bat­tery plates and elec­trolyte, while warmer bat­ter­ies re­quire a lower charge volt­age to avoid po­ten­tial dam­age to cells and re­duce un­nec­es­sary gassing. The MXS 5.0 au­to­mat­i­cally ad­justs the charg­ing rate de­pend­ing on am­bi­ent tem­per­a­ture to en­sure ideal charg­ing in ex­treme cold or hot weather con­di­tions.
