Celebrate Charge Your Car Day 2023: A Day of Gratitude for Battery Power

Mark your calendars for October 5th as we celebrate Charge Your Car Day! Your vehicle's trusty companion, the battery, has faithfully carried you from place to place. Whether you're driving a traditional internal combustion engine or an electric vehicle, your battery plays a vital role in powering your vehicle's functions. It's time to show your appreciation by turning to the technology of CTEK chargers. With a CTEK charger, you can breathe new life into your battery, ensuring it's ready to accompany you on long journeys.

Regularly tending to your 12V battery is essential to prevent sulfation and maintain peak performance, all while minimizing unexpected breakdowns. But in case you do find yourself in a sticky situation, CTEK's CS FREE adaptive booster is the intelligent choice over traditional jump starters. The CS FREE employs state-of-the-art adaptive boost technology, promising a safer and gentler experience, reducing the risk of battery damage or electrical system complications. This innovative approach not only gets you back on the road swiftly but also safeguards your battery's longevity, providing a sustainable solution for vehicle maintenance and peace of mind during your travels.

Electric and Plug-In Hybrid vehicles also depend on battery charging. The 12V auxiliary battery powers crucial components such as lighting, radio, heating, and air conditioning. Regular maintenance is a must for optimal performance. While the car's internal DC-DC system charges the 12V battery, achieving a full 100% charge often requires an external battery charger like the CTEK MXS 5.0, rather than relying solely on the standard vehicle charging process.

For newer EVs with lithium-ion batteries, it's crucial to set a charge limit of 80-90% to prevent battery degradation. Most vehicles come equipped with this feature, but it's wise to consult your car's manual for specific instructions.

Charging your car battery not only reduces the risk of breakdowns but also extends your battery's lifespan by up to three times. Additionally, it helps minimize the need for costly repairs and protects intricate electrical systems. In today's unpredictable economic climate, investing in a car battery charger proves to be a money-saving decision, especially as we use our vehicles less frequently.

This year, our commitment is to reinforce the motto: "Get moving, stay moving, and keep charging!"
