CTEK, a leading global brand in vehicle charging solutions, is celebrating after being awarded the Auto Express product of the year for its groundbreaking new product the CS FREE. Auto Express is the leading automotive publication in the UK with a global impact on automotive trends and news.
The CTEK CS FREE – the world’s first multi-functional portable charger – was commended for its revolutionary Adaptive Boost technology that gets your car going from a flat battery in just 15 minutes. The CS FREE also has the ability to top-up an infrequently used car stored away from mains power, and can be used with accessories to enable off-grid charging via solar power or a second 12V service battery.
Robert Briggs, Director of Sales and Marketing, Asia Pacific, CTEK, said: “We are absolutely delighted that the CS FREE has won such a prestigious award. The winning criteria is a product that is innovative and breaks new ground – we’re extremely proud of the CS FREE as a useable charger and delighted to see it receiving recognition across the industry.
“As vehicle technology continues to develop, charging your vehicle battery is more important than ever before, and with the CS FREE you actually have four cutting edge products in one portable unit. It’s an adaptive booster, battery charger, smart maintainer and hi-tech powerbank.”
Unlike traditional boosters or jump starters, the CS FREE analyses the battery using Adaptive Boost technology, that works out the quickest and safest way to power up and protect your battery to get you back on the road without damaging the battery or the vehicle’s electronics.
It’s this Adaptive Boost technology that allows the innovative new charger to get a flat battery going quickly and safely – without the need for plugging into mains power, as it’s a portable charger you can use wherever you go. The unit also features a simple LED display to show when the battery has enough power to safely start your vehicle.
The CS FREE has an internal battery that can be charged via fast USB-C input and, when fully charged, it will hold its charge for up to a year, making it ideal for keeping stored in the vehicle for when you need it.
The CS FREE means you are free from being tied to a power outlet, it is truly portable. Whilst you can still charge your battery using traditional mains power, additional accessories mean you can also charge off-grid using solar panel kit or a separate service battery. And with USB-C and USB-A outputs for charging laptops, smartphones, tablets, etc., it’s the ultimate 12V powerbank for your vehicle.
The CS FREE is now available in Australia and comes with 2 years warranty and is available now from Edisons for $499. To learn more and purchase a CS FREE visit https://www.edisons.com.au
