  about ctek  

CTEK Smarter Chargers maximize the life of your battery. Our patented desulphation function can extend the life of your current battery 2-3 times that of its normal life. With an annual growth rate of over 50% for the last six years, people around the world are finding CTEK chargers as a valuable investment to keep their vehicles, boats, motorcycles, and much more, in prime condition.

Using a unique charge algorithm, CTEK Smarter Chargers go through 8 steps to constantly read and communicate with your battery, charging only to its direct needs and therefore avoiding any possibility of incorrectly charging the battery.

Furthermore, by ensuring the battery is conditioned as well as charged, your batteries last significantly longer. Moreover, each CTEK Smart Battery Charger regulates mains voltage to protect any sensitive electrical equipment.

Now that's smart!

  ctek and the safari co.  
  We make use of three deep cycle and one standard batteries in our expedition vehicle (1 deepcycle and 1 standard) and offroad trailer (2 deepcycle). During our expeditions we depend on the reliability of our batteries to provide us with power for our fridges, lights and charging of laptops and camera batteries. The solution for our set up is to maintain our batteries to its optimum charge to prevent damage.

We've opted for two CTEK battery chargers to charge with 12V, 220V and solar.

The Safari Co. makes use of the following CTEK battery chargers:
ctek mxs 10   ctek d250s dual with solar input
CTEK Battery Charger MXS 10  

The MXS 10 is a fully automatic 8-step charger that delivers 10 A to 12 V batteries from 20–200 Ah and is suitable for maintenance charging up to 300 Ah. The charger is splash and dust proof, designed to protect vehicle electronics, non-sparking, reverse polarity protected, and short-circuit proof.

  CTEK Battery Charger D250S Dual   The D250S DUAL is a fully automatic 5-stage charger that supplies 20 A to 12 V batteries of 40–300 Ah.

The charger is water jet and dust protected and approved for outdoor use and protects vehicle electronics. It is suitable for all types of lead-acid batteries (Wet, MF, Gel, AGM).
The MXS 10 is a charger that offers state of the art technology. It is ideal for professional use and excellent in workshops, caravans, RVs, boats or cars. The MXS 10 is perfect for solving a broad range of battery problems.

It offers features such as battery diagnosis that shows if a battery can receive and retain a charge, a special reconditioning function that restores stratified and deeply discharged batteries, unique maintenance charging and a temperature sensor for optimised charging regardless of the weather conditions. It also has a power supply mode which allows the battery to be disconnected from the vehicle without losing important configurations. The unique display allows the user to follow the entire charging process.

  The D250S DUAL charger obtains its energy from DC sources such as
alternators, solar panels or wind power and optimises this power to meet the charging requirements of different battery banks. The D250S DUAL automatically selects the best connected DC energy source (of 2) for the purpose and switches between these energy sources to achieve high efficiency multi-stage charging. The D250S DUAL is particularly suitable for charging vehicles that do not have access to grid power supplies. Charging automatically starts as soon as DC energy is provided to the charger, for example, from alternators when a vehicle is started or from solar panels when connected. The D250S DUAL ensures that your batteries are always in good condition, quick charging and have long battery lifetimes.

CTEK Comfort Charger   the ctek comfort led indicator
The COMFORT INDICATOR indicates when the battery status decreases and the battery needs to be charged.

The reason for these new products (The Comfort Indicator) is the harmful stratifying process within a battery that starts when the battery voltage drops below 90% of the full battery capacity. When the battery is kept under charged, it loses capacity prematurely, shortening its life. Controlling the battery level continuously and charging when needed will prolong the life expectancy of the battery.

The COMFORT INDICATOR is easy to use and provides the tool to keep the batteries fresh and extends its life expectancy.

We installed the COMFORT INDICATOR in the dashboard of our vehicle and it makes monitoring and charging the battery easy and painless by plugging the MXS 10 into the plug point without having to open the bonnet of the vehicle.

Green light means that the battery is OK and does not need to be charged.
Yellow light means that the battery should be charged to avoid stratification.
Red light means that the battery needs charging to be able to start the vehicle.

With peace-of-mind and ease-of-useas two important aspects of our electrical system, the CTEK COMFORT INDICATOR works well with our expedition vehicle and trailer.
