No matter how big or small the job

In the modern workshop, it is important to remember that no matter how big or small the job in front of you, it is vital that battery support isn’t forgotten.
After all, the battery is the heart of any car, and as part of diagnostic servicing keeping it fully supported is always the best practice solution.
With vehicle technology evolving, the battery continues to be put to the test. From keyless entry to the alarm system and even the digital clock, each of these uses the battery to perform.
CTEK says it is the leader in battery charging technology and explains it has run extensive tests on vehicle battery usage.
When testing an average BMW X5 SUV, for example, CTEK says its research data shows that central locking uses 27.1 Amps (peak), while power windows use 40.38 Amps (peak), the electric parking brake uses 30.6 Amps (peak), and lights use 27.68 Amps (peak).
Even having the vehicle door open and the ignition off uses 10.5 Amps, and with the ignition on this goes up to 32.8 Amps.
So, no matter how big or small the job, simply charging and conditioning batteries during a service will ensure that customers are protected against flat batteries and other battery related breakdowns.
CTEK says it has a fast, safe and effective solution that will enable workshops to charge batteries without removing the battery from the vehicle or interfering with vehicle servicing procedures.
It says the CTEK PRO15S is an innovative, versatile and highly efficient battery charger and power supply unit, designed around the needs of the automotive professional.
Combining power and advanced technology with safety, portability and flexibility to work with any 12V vehicle battery, including lithium (12V LiFePO4), CTEK says it is the perfect solution to professional battery charging, in the workshop or the showroom.
The CTEK PRO15S is available in Australia via Bainbridge and the Ashdown-Ingram network.
