CTEK MXS 3.8 Automatic Battery Charger (Charges & Maintains Car and Motorcycle Batteries) 12V, 3.8 Amp - UK Plug
The MXS 3.8 is an advanced microprocessor-controlled battery charger with patented Float/Pulse maintenance for use on batteries from 1.2Ah up to 85Ah. The MXS 3.8 solves a broad range of battery problems and is the ideal charger for everyday use. Features of the MXS 3.8 include diagnosis of battery condition to establish if it can receive and retain charge, patented automatic desulphation program and a special ‘Snowflake’ mode for optimum charging on cold winter days. Patented Float/Pulse maintenance means the MXS 3.8 is ideal for long-term maintenance. The entire process of battery testing, charging and maintenance is easily followed on the clear LED display.
The MXS 3.8 is a fully automatic ‘connect and forget’ 12V charger with 7 charging steps and offers selectable 0.8A, and 3.8A programs. The ‘Snowflake’ mode operates on the 3.8A program. It offers a wide charging range on all lead-acid battery types from 1.2Ah up to 80Ah with additional maintenance capability to 130Ah. It is splash proof and dust proof (IP65). The MXS 3.8 is easy and safe to use, protects vehicle electronics, is spark-free, reverse polarity protected and short circuit proof. The MXS 3.8 features a 5-year warranty.
Complete Battery Care — unique and patented system to charge and maintain all lead-acid battery types to maximise performance and extend life.
Safe and easy to use — User safety through spark free operation and reverse polarity protection. Vehicle electrical safety through exceptionally clean voltage and current delivery with no surges or spikes. No need to disconnect battery from the vehicle when charging.
Connect and Forget — simple plug and play operation. Select the program and leave the charger to do the rest.
Unique 7 Step Charging — the patented 7 step programme tests battery condition and charges and maintains to ensure maximum battery life and performance. SNOWFLAKE ideal for charging on cold winter days. FLOAT/PULSE maintenance ensures ideal battery care during periods of inactivity.
Extends battery life — the unique features of CTEK chargers combine to maximise performance and extend battery life.
STEP 1 DESULPHATION: Pulsing voltage removes sulphates from the lead plates of the battery restoring the battery capacity.
STEP 2 SOFT START: Tests if the battery can accept charge. Charging begins if the battery is OK
STEP 3 BULK: Charging with maximum current until approximately 80 % battery capacity.
STEP 4 ABSORPTION, BATTERY READY TO USE: Charging with declining current to maximize up to 100 % battery capacity.
STEP 5 ANALYSE: Tests if the battery can hold charge. Batteries that cannot hold charge may need to be replaced.
STEP 6 FLOAT, BATTERY FULLY CHARGED: Maintaining the battery voltage at maximum level by providing a constant voltage charge.
STEP 7 PULSE, MAINTENANCE CHARGING: Maintaining the battery at 95–100 % capacity. The charger monitors the battery voltage and gives a pulse when necessary to keep the battery fully charged.
