CTEK’s new CS FREE portable battery charger can recharge a flat battery in just 15 minutes, even when nowhere near a power outlet.

A ‘must-have’ for boaties and vehicle owners, CS FREE uses a plug-in detachable DC clamp cable to connect to the battery connection points. CTEK’s Adaptive Boost technology then automatically works out the quickest and safest way to power up the battery so that, in just 15 minutes, it will have enough power to restart the engine.

Unlike most ‘boosters’, CS FREE is sensitive to the state of the battery and supplies just enough charge to get the boat or vehicle going, avoiding damage to the battery and the electronics. When fully charged the internal battery will remain ready to use for up to a year. CS FREE can be charged up and powered using solar power or a 12v battery and can also be used for maintenance charging.

Featuring an LED display that shows time left until the battery is fully charged, CS FREE works with all types of 12v lead-acid and lithium batteries. It has USB-C and USB-A outlets to charge laptops, smartphones and tablets.

Supplied in a tough, durable case, it comes with a two-year warranty.
