The CTEK solution in Jay Leno’s garage!

It is great to see that we are once again helping Jay Leno, and the guys in his garage with their battery charging needs – this time to keep the battery of this awesome Mercedes race car transporter in good condition. They’ve mounted a CTEK accessory to monitor and show battery state of charge that also enables hassle-free charging, without the need to pop the bonnet. Here’s how it works….

This neat little accessory shows battery state of charge and makes sure that the garage knows when to charge, maximising battery health and protecting against a flat battery. It uses a simple traffic light system.

The CTEK Comfort Indicator Panel will flash:
Green – the battery is fully charged and does not need attention
Orange – the battery is below 90% state of charge, charging is recommended
Red – if the battery is below 80% state of charge, it should be charged immediately to avoid a flat battery

Now the battery on Jay Leno’s Mercedes Race Car Transporter is located in a spot that is pretty hard to reach, which is where The CTEK Comfort Indicator Panel proves useful! Simply flip the rubber cap, plug in a CTEK charger, and you’re connected to the battery…no need to pop the bonnet. It’s simple, hassle-free charging and maintenance.


In combination with the CTEK Comfort Indicator Panel, a CTEK TEST AND CHARGE charger/maintainer has been used. This 4.3A charger will condition, charge and maintain the vehicle battery, preventing battery problems and maximizing vehicle efficiency. This particular unit also has an alternator test function, providing a complete battery testing, charging and maintenance solution.

It’s great to see that we can help to keep this Mercedes race car transporter on the road!!
