Don't Get Stuck With A Dead Battery During This Road Trip Season

With Holy Week fast approaching, it’ll be one of the busiest travel seasons. Traveling by plane often means leaving a vehicle in an airport parking lot. After a long journey home, airport delays, battles with heavy luggage, and long lines, exhausted travelers could be faced with a further delay in getting home: a dead battery. The high-power demands of modern vehicles and the drain from parasitic loads such tracking devices and alarms means that a battery can potentially become dead in a matter of days.

CTEK recommends travelers to think ahead, and be prepared by adding an adaptive booster to their “must-haves.”

Focusing purely on getting home as quickly as possible vehicle owners are placing their cars at risk of damage by choosing the only quick option—a jump start. When a vehicle is jump-started a huge surge of voltage and current is generated that passes through the battery to energize the starter motor. This can potentially get through to the Electronic Control Unit (ECU) and cause irreparable damage.

To ensure your car will start when you return from your vacation, stay safe with CTEK’s CS Free adaptive booster and its three main features.

To protect against a dead battery when leaving your car parked CTEK recommends an overnight charge the weekend before you go away to bring the battery up to maximum capacity. This will extend your battery life by as much as 300 percent and prevent the risk of jump starting your vehicle when arriving back.

Use the CS Free to get your battery fully charged and in tip-top condition before you leave home, especially if you haven’t used your vehicle for a while or have only been using it for short journeys. Simply plug the CS Free into the power outlet or another power source, and this smart battery charger will check how much charge you have in your battery and get you fully charged in advance of your trip.

Stuck with a dead battery? Use adaptive boost to get you going again. Simply charge the CS Free before you leave home, and it will hold its charge for up to a year. Then, if you do find yourself stranded at the airport, the CS Free uses patented adaptive boost technology to gently and safely give you enough charge to get you going in around 15 minutes.

This is completely safe for your vehicle’s electronics, unlike most traditional boosters or jump starters which deliver a sharp burst of power to effectively shock the battery into life, risking potential damage to vehicle electronics.

Charging your car battery at least once a month prolongs its life by up to three times, so getting yourself into a regular battery maintenance routine makes perfect sense. And, as battery failure can damage or compromise a vehicle’s electronics, a smart charger like the CS Free is most certainly a worthwhile investment.

The CS Free is available for in the Philippines through CTEK’s official Lazada or Shopee stores.
