Why do Groves sell this and what are our recommendations?

CTEK boasts incredible popularity in the battery aftercare market due to how well their products work. Using their chargers is extremely easy and can provide a 'connect and forget' battery charging solution; we even use them ourselves at our workshop.

They are fully automatic which means you can leave them on charge and they will switch themselves off when they are done.

When a battery is not in use, we recommend charging once every 3 months or so. 

 

We recommend this charger if you:

  • Want to get up to 3 times the life out of your battery
  • Do short journeys, town driving etc
  • Use your vehicle intermittently 
  • Have a moderate to high amount of electrical equipment (heated seats, air conditioning, convertible, daytime running lights etc.)

 

The MXS 10 is great for charging all types of batteries quickly. From car to lorry batteries; this charger will charge very quickly and can be left to maintain batteries for as long as you like. Perfect if you need batteries to be charged quickly. 

We would recommend this charger for leisure batteries.

We would recommend this charger if you are charging batteries very frequently or it is for workshop / professional use.

Why do batteries need to be charged?

With a fully charged battery you don’t have to worry about whether your sports car or motorbike will start after a winter stored away. You have full control and avoid any unpleasant surprises. In addition, the battery remains in top condition, and you can rest assured it will work correctly. Regular charging also prolongs battery lifespan. 

When should batteries be charged?

All batteries self-discharge to some extent, but the amount depends on the temperature. If the battery’s no-load voltage drops to 12.4 V or less for an extended period, sulfation increases, which impairs charging. So it is important to keep the no-load voltage high, even if the battery is not being used. This applies, for example, to batteries for pleasure boats, motorbikes and other vehicles that are only used part of the year. You can do this either by charging the battery at intervals or through continuous maintenance charging.
