Beating the Heat this Summer with the MXS 5.0

Heat May Be a Battery’s Enemy, Fight the Effects With a Unique Eight-Step Approach to Battery Care

Naturally, during the coldest months of the year, we tend to think about battery care. No-one likes the experience of getting in your vehicle, trying to start it, only to find a dead battery. During the hottest summer months however, heat can be even more of an enemy to your vehicle’s battery. You can protect and preserve your battery with the highly capable CTEK MXS 5.0 and it’s unique eight-step approach to battery care.

Just like the inside of your car, in the heat, under the hood heats up and can affect your battery.

How Heat Affects Your Battery

As temperatures outside heat up, so does the temperature under the hood of your car, truck, or SUV. This creates an atmosphere that can be harmful to your battery. This built up heat can increase the chances of battery failure, as corrosion can speed up and intensify. In addition, water inside the battery in the form of electrolytes can evaporate. Battery related service calls tend to increase over the summer months for these very reasons.

How the Eight-Step Charging Process Works

The MXS 5.0 features capabilities for improved charging in all weather. With the revolutionary eight-step process, you have the power of charging, maintaining, and if needed, reconditioning on your side. Here is how the eight-step process works:

  1. The first step, Desulfation, breaks down and removes any sulfates in the battery. 
  2. Moving on, the MXS 5.0 then checks the vitals of your battery. 
  3. The Bulk Charging phase begins. During this part of the process the battery begins is charging.
  4. Following the bulk charging phase, the absorption phase begins, charging the battery fully to 100%
  5. The MXS 5.0 analyzes the battery to ensure the battery is capable of holding the charge. 
  6. If needed, you can select the Recond program to return energy to your battery. 
  7. The float charge keeps your battery charged up once the battery’s charge has reached its full capacity. 
  8. A pulse charge will continue to maintain, and even prolong your battery’s life.

By utilizing this unique and comprehensive charging process, you can keep your vehicle on the go during the difficult, hot, summer months (or in any weather!)
