Go­ing on a long road trip any­time soon? Make sure you give your bat­tery a thor­ough check-up as part of your pre-trip in­spec­tion and prepa­ra­tion, lest you end up stranded on the side of the road in the mid­dle of nowhere at 2 am with a dead bat­tery. One way to pre­vent this from hap­pen­ing is keep­ing your bat­tery charged and healthy with a smart bat­tery charger like the D250S Dual from CTEK.

The D250S is not only a smart bat­tery charger, it’s ba­si­cally whole as­sort­ment of nifty gad­gets rolled into one. It’s a smart power re­lay, a pre­mium bat­tery iso­la­tor, and a so­lar panel volt­age con­troller with MPPT so­lar power man­age­ment func­tion­al­ity. That may sound all tech­ni­cal, com­pli­cated, and in­tim­i­dat­ing, but what it es­sen­tially does is it charges your ve­hi­cle’s bat­tery while you drive. The D250S Dual gath­ers en­ergy from avail­able sources—like your car’s al­ter­na­tor and the de­vice’s so­lar pan­els—and op­ti­mizes that power to keep your bat­tery charged in all sorts of weather con­di­tions, which the D250S Dual also mon­i­tors and ad­justs for. Ad­di­tional fea­tures in­clude com­pat­i­bil­ity with all 12V lead acid bat­ter­ies, multi-step charg­ing, and a sturdy high vi­bra­tionre­sis­tant de­sign.

This model is best suited for off-road­ers, but it’s also good for any boats and camper vans you may own. In­stal­la­tion is sim­ple and con­sumes a min­i­mal amount of time, free­ing up more of your sched­ule to en­sure the road­wor­thi­ness of the rest of your car. Noth­ing beats a thor­ough pre-road­trip in­spec­tion.
