As part of its celebrations for reaching over 100,000 fans on Facebook, Motorcycle News (MCN) magazine is running a competition in which five smart battery chargers, from global battery care and maintenance brand CTEK, are up for grabs.

To enter, participants need to visit either the Motorcycle News Facebook page or visit one of CTEK’s social profiles - and - and follow the links to the MCN Facebook competition page.

The competition will be open for two days over the Easter weekend, on Sunday 31 March and 1 April. Entrants need to simply register to enter and five lucky winners will be chosen at random.

The five competition prizes are CTEK XS 0.8 smart chargers, perfect for smaller 12V batteries usually found in motorcycles and other vehicles such as lawnmowers. However the XS 0.8 is also suitable to be used as a car battery charger.

CTEK’s XS 0.8 is compact and has a six stage charging process, including ‘desulphation’, which removes sulphates from a battery’s plates, ensuring the battery can charge to its full capacity. The charger can be left attached for long periods of time, for example throughout the winter months when a bike is in storage, and has been designed for unsupervised use. It is straightforward to connect and the display allows users to follow the full charging process, meaning battery maintenance has never been simpler for riders.

Katariina Stahl, director of sales and marketing at CTEK, commented: “As part of Motorcycle News’ 100,000 Facebook fans celebration, five lucky fans will be able to win a CTEK XS 0.8 smart battery charger. All people have to do is visit the MCN competition page, which can easily found by following the link from

“All vehicle batteries should be cared for, but it is especially important to undertake a regular routine on a motorcycle’s battery. Bikes are often only used during weekends over the summer months, which invites sulphur to build-up on the plates and this can easily lead to a battery failure well before its time.”
