CTEK, a global maintenance and care brand, is highlighting to vehicle owners who are wary of undertaking a battery check without the assistance of a professional that advancements in technology means battery testing is more straightforward and safe than ever before.
Some products, such as the CTEK Battery Analyzer, use state-of-the-art conductance technology to produce the precise amount of current, which is more accurate and safer compared to the load testing method. Furthermore, drivers, motorbike riders and boat owners who are confident of safely checking the condition of their battery themselves can do at a time and location convenient to them, without an invoice to pay.
Load testing delivers a current across the battery cells and processes the output of the battery which is then sent back to the tester. This particular method tries to identify weaknesses in the battery by simply short circuiting and placing the battery under a vast amount of stress for 10 to 15 seconds. This form of testing has been seen as unreliable and also potentially dangerous to the user. In comparison, the CTEK Battery Analyzer simply passes a very low current across the battery terminals and then instantly displays on screen results. Clear actions are displayed on the screen- Battery Good, Good Recharge, Charge and Retest and Replace Battery – meaning the Battery Analyzer is easier on both the battery and the user.
Katariina Stahl, director of sales and marketing at CTEK, commented: “At CTEK, we take great pride in ensuring that all our products are completely safe for users and also kind to complex vehicle components. We use the latest technologies to provide drivers and motorbike riders, as well as other vehicle owners, with the safest possible way to test the condition of batteries so they can do so at their convenience without any concerns or previous experience. Regularly checking the health of a vehicle battery, and taking the appropriate action to ensure the unit is at its optimum charge, can increase the life of a battery by up to 3 years and prevent unexpected battery failure. When it comes to battery maintenance, simple actions can save lots of inconvenience and a great deal of money.”
