Whether you are glamping in a remote area far from civilization, navigating the back roads of Death Valley or caught in the city after the opera with a dead car battery, having a portable battery charger matters when no help is around to be found. With in-vehicle technologies advancing, battery management is more important than ever to maintain battery life and protect the vehicle’s electronic control unit (ECU) which manages everything in the car from transmission control, brake control, and more. A misstep with management can cost a vehicle owner thousands of dollars in repair time.
“Jump starting a car with unsafe jumper cables is a thing of the past,” said Bobbie DuMelle, Executive Vice President of CTEK North America. “With CTEK’s advanced technology, drivers no longer have the fear of getting shocked or overcharging their car battery.”
The multi-functional CS FREE launched last year in North America by CTEK, a leading global brand in battery charging solutions, celebrates the growing complexity of in-vehicle technologies by providing four cutting-edge products in one portable unit: Adaptive Boost safe start, battery charger, smart maintainer, and hi-tech power bank. Unlike traditional cables, the award-winning CS FREE uses revolutionary Adaptive Boost technology to gently and safely give a dead battery enough charge to start in 15 minutes.
“The CS FREE enables truly portable charging and power wherever you are,” said DuMelle. “Having CS Free in your vehicle’s emergency kit provides peace of mind knowing you won’t be stranded.”
In addition to powering up dead car batteries, the CS FREE is a multi-functional resource. As a hi-tech power bank, the CS FREE also has USB-A and USB-B ports to charge phones, computers, tablets and other devices. Moreover, the smart maintainer can keep a battery in peak condition. Regularly maintaining batteries prolongs their lifespan as much as three-times, saving costly replacements of not just the battery but other automotive parts. The multi-functional CS Free can also be used traditionally as a charger and a long-term maintainer by plugging it into any wall outlet.
