SUPER-SMART BATTERY CHARGER

CTEK’s powerful new revolutionary CS ONE is a smart, versatile and easy-to-use battery charger.

CTEK’s new APTO™ (Adaptive Charging) technology does all the thinking so you don’t have to. In a world with so many different battery chemistries and charging requirements, the CS ONE is perfect for every need. CS ONE automatically detects the battery’s chemistry, works out its size and then delivers the perfect, customised charging programme, from 2 to 8 amps.

CTEK’s free-to-download App gives users even greater control of the versatile CS ONE charger through their smartphone. Using Bluetooth connectivity, the App unlocks additional great features such as RECON (to restore and recondition lead-acid batteries), WAKE UP (to revive seemingly dead lithium and lead-acid batteries) and 12V SUPPLY (to support the battery during service work and retain contact power during replacement or removal).

Engineered for complete safety and peace of mind, CS ONE comes with black, polarity-free and spark-free clamps and automatically works out which terminal is positive and which is negative (the clamps can even safely come into contact with each other).

Although boats, motorhomes and cars can have up to five different battery chemistries, the CS ONE is compatible with them all. There are no buttons to push or modes to select, simply connect those clamps to any 12v lead-acid or lithium (LiFePO4) battery and let it go to work. CS ONE’s easy-to-follow countdown LEDs give a visual indication about the time remaining for the battery to be fully charged and even when the flat battery can be restarted. It will also say if the battery cannot be charged due to damage.

It comes with a five-year warranty and is available now through Lusty and Blundell’s Albany, Whangarei and Tauranga showrooms and from their nationwide network of marine dealers.

LOW PROFILE DECK LAMP

HELLA MARINE introduces the low profile and powerful FMS LED deck lamps. These surface mount scene lamps are purpose-designed to integrate discreetly into tight spaces and exterior recesses, yet throw a huge amount of light. With a protrusion of only 38mm, the FMS lamps are sleek and unobtrusive during the day, but make themselves very well-known at night.

Two light intensities are offered: the FMS1200 with 1200 lumens; and the FMS2500 with an even more powerful 2500 lumens. Both lamps offer even, close-range illumination directly underneath the lamp. The light is projected downwards at a fixed angle of 45 degrees, no brackets to adjust.


DATAHUB BY PREDICTWIND

THIS SMALL but powerful GPS Tracker is custom designed from the ground up, with extra features to make coastal or offshore tracking, data, and communications easier.

The DataHub can connect to the NMEA backbone so all the data on board your vessel can be logged and transmitted. This has many real-world applications such as enriching GPS tracking data with wind speed and direction through to more complex tasks such as yacht performance polar development.

For those making passages to foreign countries, you can overcome sim card restrictions by connecting a local sim to the Datahub and broadcasting the cell data to other devices on-board. You can also switch off your satellite-based GPS tracking and let the Datahub take over your tracking updates via cell data.

Garmin LiveScope Plus 

Garmin’s LiveScope™ Plus System provides brilliantly clear live scanning sonar returns and 35% improved target separation over the existing system.

With three modes – Forward, Down and Perspective – the LiveScope Plus System also inludes the popular Perspective Mode Mount.

The LiveScope Plus transducer delivers 35% improved target separation and can identify and separate targets as small as 36cm up to 30m from the boat. With brilliantly clear sonar returns, seven vivid color options, improved image stitching, reduced noise and fewer on-screen artifacts, anglers benefit from a better picture of fish and structure.

LiveScope Plus has additional sensors that allow it to constantly adjust the sonar beams to compensate for boat motion, so anglers will still see a steady sonar image even in rough conditions.

The LiveScope Plus System delivers three unique vantage points via one easily adjusted mount. Turn the transducer forward for a live look at what’s out in front of the boat; point it down to see directly beneath the boat; or turn it sideways for the ‘top down’ perspective mode – a wide view of what’s in front of the boat up to 15m away.

The selected LiveScope mode view will automatically change on a compatible Garmin chartplotter2 screen.

LiveScope Plus is compatible with a wide range of Garmin GPSMAP® and ECHOMAP™ chartplotters and combo units.
