CTEK is offering PMM readers the chance to win a MXTS 40 battery charger and support unit for their workshop.
With one in four vehicles arriving in the workshop with a battery problem, it’s more important than ever to ensure that batteries are supported if you are undertaking repairs, testing electrical circuits, carrying out diagnostic procedures, flash programming ECUs programming vehicle keys. Using a battery support unit will protect the battery against failure, save you time, insure against costly programming failures and prevent possible damage the ECU.
What can you win?
The CTEK MXTS 40 is a powerful, compact and robust 40A battery charger and support unit for use with both 12 and 24V batteries. Select ‘Supply’ mode for up to 40A (20A in 24V mode) of support during diagnostic and flash programming work, or use it as a secure power source if the battery needs to be disconnected from the vehicle. The company says the product offers total flexibility for the user with
selectable voltages between 13.6 and 14.8V in 12V mode, or 27.2 and 29.6V in 24V mode. It is also said to react quickly to sudden increases in power demands to maintain a steady voltage at all times. The MXTS 40 also delivers an eight-step approach to battery care to ensure that any lead-acid battery is optimally conditioned and charged. It can be used with all types of 12V lead-acid battery, including Calcium, Gel, AGM and EFB types to ensure that a safe, fast charge is delivered. Fully automatic, spark-proof and reverse polarity protected, the MXTS 40 can be connected to the battery without removing it from the vehicle.
The ‘Recond’ and ‘Boost’ modes can also be selected to restore deeply discharged batteries which would normally be discarded. Supplied with heavy duty 2.5m detachable charge cables and clamps, the product is compatible with the CTEK PRO trolley and wall mount accessories. The MXTS 40 has a two-year warranty.
