CTEK retains Auto Express ‘Best Battery Charger’ crown


We are pleased to confirm that in the UK, the CTEK MXS 3.6 has scooped the Auto Express ‘Best Battery Charger’ accolade for the fourth time, with the MXS 5.0 coming a close second.

The independent test has been adapted this year to match the growing abilities of today’s chargers, so as well as checking the printed instructions, leads, clamps and ease of use Auto Express also looked at what the chargers could do. They looked at the chargers abilities to charge when cold, recondition old batteries and deal with the various types of battery found in modern cars and for the first year looked at user safety. The price of each charger was also factored in too.

Recognised for its build quality, charge rate, ease of use and competitive price, the CTEK MXS 3.6 beat off stiff competition to retain its crown and we are absolutely delighted. To gain second place with the MXS 5.0, which was commended for even quicker charging and additional recond mode, makes this an even greater achievement. Both awards are testament to the unique multi-stage charging characteristics of the product that are incorporated across our entire range of smart chargers.

The CTEK MXS 3.6 charges, conditions and maintains all types of 12V lead-acid batteries including maintenance free types and all chemistries including Wet, Calcium, GEL and AGM. As with all CTEK products, the MXS 3.6 is fully automatic, foolproof to connect, spark proof and reverse-polarity protected, for user safety.
