The demands of modern vehicles mean lead-acid batteries are being used under more demanding conditions than ever before

As a result, battery care is a fast-growing issue, particularly as life expectancy drops rapidly due to inadequate maintenance.
In fact, CTEK says research shows that as many as 50 percent of vehicles entering workshops in the UK had a battery that needed attention, with similar statistics anticipated in Australia.
The high-power demands of modern vehicles and the drain from parasitic loads, such as tracking devices and alarms, means that a battery can potentially become flat in a matter of days.
What’s more, by making sure that a vehicle battery is tested when it first enters the workshop, and supported during any diagnostic procedures, workshops can also avoid frustrating and mis-leading ‘ghost-faults.’
A ghost fault, or ghost code, is a fault that your diagnostic tool detects for one component, that has actually arisen from another.  
CTEK says the correct diagnostic equipment is key to solving vehicle issues quickly and efficiently, all while ensuring the battery is protected.
It states that the CTEK PRO60 is an innovative and highly efficient 60A battery charger and power supply that’s designed to meet the demands of the modern workshop. With its cutting-edge design, advanced technology and state of the art features, CTEK says it is the perfect solution for comprehensive battery charging, maintenance and support.
The CTEK PRO60 restores charge and reconditions batteries using a patented multi step charging process. It is compatible with all types of 12V battery, including normal wet/flooded, Ca/Ca and Lithium (LiFePO4), as well as AGM and EFB Stop/Start batteries.
The PRO60’s ‘adaptive charging’ mode automatically detects the appropriate settings for the battery and applies the optimum settings for the fastest charge. It has been designed to be user friendly with just four buttons and a clear, easy to read LCD display.
Further, CTEK explains that the PRO60 is also the perfect stable power supply, with 12.6-14.8V available in selectable 0.1V increments, stating this ensures that no damage can occur to sensitive vehicle electronics.
The CTEK PRO60 is available from Repco/NAPA Auto Parts.
