Jack has been featured in the October issue of “BMW Owners News”, the official publication of the BMW Motorcycle Owners of America.

The CTEK MULTI US 25000 Battery Charger Gives Vehicle Enthusiasts the Most Powerful Smarter Charger Yet
CTEK Smarter Charger’s newest charger, the MULTI US 25000, is a fully automatic, primary switch mode battery charger designed to power 12V batteries with a rapid-charge capability ideal for RV’s, boats ATVs or any other heavy-duty electric utility. CTEK has leveraged their innovative technology to harness total Smarter Charger performance into a sleek and simple charging device, rendering the MULTI US 25000 an ideal tool for both commercial business owners and home-garage devotees alike.

Beyond the sleek and simple user interface, CTEK Smarter Chargers are powered by cutting-edge technology and performance. The MULTI US 25000 utilizes a patented method for reconditioning sulfated batteries through battery analysis and advanced recovery techniques.

Two unique features make the MULTI US 25000 the absolute top of its class: the SUPPLY and RECOND modes. The SUPPLY mode serves as a power supply unit which can run 12V equipment up to 25A while keeping important user settings intact. The unique RECOND mode restores power capacity in a stratified battery to sustain ultimate battery life. Furthermore, the CTEK MULTI US 25000 is specifically designed to support sensitive electronic systems offered by today’s top vehicles. Unlike traditional chargers, there is no need to disconnect the battery or risk damaging complex electronic systems through abrupt changes in power sources.
