Video Transcript for CTEK Battery Charger Vendor Information

CTEK was founded in Sweden. Basically our parent company is a prototyping company. Prototypes everything from plastics to electronic equipment right down to batteries but we actually consider ourselves a battery company with out batteries. We know everything about them. How to make them last longer and perform better. We just deal with the charging and maintenance end of it. 00:18

We have a patented mode of charging for one thing that we go through. Ultimately what this is going to do is bring our battery up to charge and then shut off completely versus your traditional trickle mode or linear charge like others might do on the market. If you could actually see current and voltage what you would see with those traditional charges you are putting in the same current and voltage high amperage level. We actually consider those toasters a lot of times because they generate more heat than charge and ultimately can toast the battery if not used properly or left on too long. 00:45

We actually consider those toasters a lot of times because they generate more heat than charge and ultimately can toast the battery if not used properly or left on too long. 00:45

We realize that nobody cares about their battery. It is an evil that nobody wants to see and unfortunately nobody cares about it until it is too late and there is a problem where your vehicle does not start or your batteries are discharged to the point where you need to replace them. With our add on series, the comfort indicator, we have simply made your battery visible now. It is a one time installation. You bolt it directly to the battery with the flashing LED lights in there at all times visible you know where your battery stage of charge is at and if you need to charge it. Everything about our charger is we try to make it really safe, easy to use, and very functional. That is part of the quick connect and comfort indicator series that we have launched. Basically the concept behind it is you can have your one time installation on the battery especially with the comfort indicator series with the LED lights in it, now your battery is actually visible. You know at all times when you need to charge your battery and then it is pretty easy to use basically and you can balance your charger from vehicle to vehicle as you need to charge. 02:07

We like to think we have the best charger on the market. We try to stay ahead of the curve with the technology that we are putting into the battery chargers. CTEKs all are back by five year no questions asked warranty. Every household needs one of these chargers. It is a very robust design and it absolutely works on everything. From your lawn tractor, your boat, your RV, your motorcycle, your sports car. It is a very indispensable product to have.

CTEK Comfort Connect M8 (8.4-mm) Spare Battery Cable - CTEK56261

Average Customer Rating:  4.6 out of 5 stars   (45 Customer Reviews)

Permanently mount one of CTEK's additional battery-connection cables to each of your extra batteries for easy-access charging.

by:

Have been using the Ctek 3300 every winter in Canada, daily, since 2014, where it can get down to -40C. The connectors finally broke on the engine side at the wires of quick release from usage and the cold in start of 2022/23 winter and I eventually ordered these as replacements. Have used electrical tape and silicone tape to reinforce the wires at the strain reliefs, as well as spiral cord protectors for a bit more protections from UV and from chafing.
Was pleasantly surprised etrailer had these at a very reasonable price, including shipping to Canada via their shipping that handed off to Canada Post (Oct 26 order, Nov 08 delivered). These Comfort Connectors have the two round “sockets” with one corner on each socket, and fit the 2014 era Ctek 3300.

It would’ve been nice if the Ctek quick release to SAE adapter had been available



by:

Very convenient, put one of these on each of my tractors for simple hookup of the CTEK charger. Excellent accessory.



by:

Works great for a permanent charge point on marine batteries.
Top quality.

These comfort cables make keeping your battery in top shape very convenient.

I bought these cables for vehicles for my wife, myself, my two daughters and my two sons in law. Every 3 or 4 months we simply raise the garage door, extend the charger cable out to the driveway, pop the hood and connect them to these comfort cables. So easy, even a caveman could do it, and this ease of use provides no reason for everyone to refresh their car battery. I honestly dont know why everyone doesnt use this set-up, when your battery fails it usually puts you in a major bind somewhere, this goes a LONG way toward preventing that.

Handy accessory for CTEK chargers.

So far so good

Price was right, packaged well and on time. What’s not to like?



by:

Purchased to have leads on three batteries for RV while stored in winter since I have one charger. The items I received looked great but will NOT fit the charger cord. The charger has one hex shaped lead but the extensions have both round connectors and will not engage properly.
This is a HUGE waste of money!!!DO NOT Buy



by:

Product arrived on time in great shape. I actually bought it for parts to repair another similar unit that I have but it worked out fine.



by:

These battery connectors are great. You can save a world of time by permanently connecting one to each of your batteries and then it is a simple quick connect to a Ctek charger to keep any battery in top shape. Perfect for seldom used battery storage or just to keep your vehicle battery in perfect condition.



by:

Ordered this item to go with the CTEK battery charger I also ordered. Now I don't have to pop open the hood to connect the CTEK charger to the battery. The items were shipped quickly even with the poor weather conditions we were enduring. I've always liked their price and assistance available for merchandise purchased thru etrailer. Kudos for the staff at etrailer.com.



by:

perfect to plug in my car battery charg er



by:

I have used CTEK products before and I am very pleased with its use during the winter months for battery management. This recent order is my second CTEK and I plan not only to use it to maintain battery levels on my C7 corvette , but on other systems as well. Your price and shipping offers are excellent and I would recommend your service to anyone interested in battery chargers.



by:

The connector itself worked fine. I already had a CTEK charger but lost the quick connect cable. Cable was properly attached to existing charger, but the charger itself failed to keep the bike battery charged. Bought a different charger and it's now working just fine.



by:

Product arrived as described, A+



by:

Perfect product
Very quick shipping



by:

We really like the CTEK battery charger. In fact, we now own 6 of them.



by:

Didnt fit the application



by:

Thank you for your promptness and delivery - it was expedient and very satisfactory - if I need a purchase, you shall be first to come to mind you are the kind of people I like to do business with.
Thank you ~ Dan Dietz



by:

I hooked them up to my motorcycle, 3 wheelers, and zero turn mower, now it will be easier charge my batteries, thanks to the comfort hook ups.



by:

Everything went well. Arrived on time, and packaged really well. Will order from e-trailer again.

  • What is Voltage Range For Each Light Color on the CTEK Battery Health Indicator Cable # CTEK56382

  • How to Charge Multiple Optima Batteries with the CTEK 7002 # CTEK56353 Battery Charger
    I Contacted CTEK to be sure that I could give you the correct information on charging your 4 Optima Yellow Top batteries. He said that as long as the batteries are connected in parallel, still a 12 volt system, you can use the CTEK MULTI US 7002 12-Volt Universal Battery Charger w/ Pulse Maintenance and Backup Power, item # CTEK56353, to charge all 4 batteries at the same time. He also stated that the CTEK MULTI US 7002, is the charger that they recommend for the Optima Yellow Top and is...

  • How to Connect Spare Battery to Trailer 7-Way
    To connect an auxiliary battery, I recommend using 10 gauge wire, like # 10-2-1 (per foot) to connect the 12V power wire on your trailer side 7-way connector to a junction box like # 38656. From there, you can run more of the same wire from the positive side of the battery to the same post where you previously connected the 12V wire on the junction box. To connect to the posts, you can use 3/16 inch ring terminals # 44-5310A. If you don't already have a junction box, the 7-Way Molded Trailer...
