CTEK Advises Regular Battery Maintenance as Dip in New Car Registrations Shows Used Cars Still Popular Wednesday 2 November 2011 PDF Print Recent news from the Society of Motor Manufacturers and Traders (SMMT) that new car registrations were down in July by 3.5 per cent, and 6.7 per cent over the year to date after 13 successive monthly declines, has prompted CTEK, a leading global brand in Battery Maintenance and care, to highlight the importance of battery maintenance. CTEK believes that the rise in popularity of used cars means now, more than ever, motorists need to consider battery maintenance as standard. Motorists tend to rank car servicing and the MOT as the most important and possibly only required car maintenance actions, not considering battery life as much or even at all. However, battery failure is the most common cause of vehicle breakdowns – resulting in frustration and expense – but is completely avoidable. According to Mikael Moberg, European Sales Director at CTEK: “Without the correct maintenance battery failure can occur at any time - the inconvenience of which can be significant. People tend to be wary about battery chargers – worried about damaging the battery or even themselves. However, a new generation in smart car battery chargers negates the chances of this. Unlike many on the market, CTEK’s Smart Battery Charger range reacts only to the needs of the battery meaning that it can charge, condition and prolong the life of all types of car battery. “Every CTEK 24V or 12V Battery Charger is simple and safe to use – being spark proof and reverse polarity protected eliminates any chance of personal or vehicle harm. Unique technology also means that a charger can be left attached to the battery for an indefinite period of time without damaging the battery. It’s simply plug and play.” CTEK’s range of smart chargers are designed to read the battery power accurately so that the correct amount of charge is given. The battery can also be charged in situ meaning there is no need to disconnect the battery. All of the battery chargers in the CTEK range are easy to use, fully automatic, require no specialist knowledge for use and come with either a two or five year warranty.
