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 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 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.

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. 497405

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. 325953

After a year of use Ive had no issues. Ive installed this on all of my batteries vehicles, boat, ATV and Bobcat so all I have to do is attach the CTEK battery charger by connecting the adapters and plugging it in.

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. 412247

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. 227410

Do you have a question about this Accessories and Part?


  • Recommended Battery Charger for 2018 Porsche Panamera
  • To maintain the charge on your Porsche Panamera's battery while you're away I recommend the NOCO Genius UltraSafe Battery Charger and Maintainer # 329-G7200. This will attach to the battery itself on your Porsche and plug into an AC outlet at the other end. Its various charge cycles and maintenance mode prevents any kind of overcharging while also ensuring your Porsche is ready to start as soon as you return. I have attached a short video review that you can check out as well.

  • Best Method For Connecting The CTEK MULTI US 7002 12V Universal Battery Charger To Battery
  • The CTEK MULTI US 7002 12-Volt Universal Battery Charger w/ Pulse Maintenance and Backup Power, # CTEK56353, is an excellent charger and maintainer. It is maintencence free and utilizes an 8-step system to constantly monitor and maintain 12V battery charge. For connection, I recommend using the quick-disconnect system with the eyelet-terminal cable to permanantly attach to your battery terminals. This will give you the quick plug function and will prevent you from needing to double check...

  • Adding 12 Volt Power Outlet in a Camper for an Electric Blanket that Plugs Into a Cigarette Lighter
  • A very simple solution wou8ld be the Battery Adapter - 12-Volt DC Cord to Battery Clips, # A-203. Connect the battery clip ends to the battery and plug in your electric blanket in the 12 volt end. Depending on where you will have a battery, the 3 foot cord may or may not be long enough. For a more permanent solution you can mount the Hopkins 12-Volt Power Socket with Power Wire and Fuse Assembly, # HM55115. It comes with an extra 17 feet of wire to connect to a battery and includes an...

  • Using CTEK Cigarette Plug Charging Cable, Part # CTEK56263 W/ Lighter Powered Only When Igntion On
  • The CTEK Comfort Connect Cigarette Plug Charger Cable, part # CTEK56263 will not work to charge the vehicle battery unless the circuit feeding the cigarette lighter is live. Many vehicle have an additional power outlet that is powered when the ignition is switched off. If this is the case with your 2003 Toyota Tacoma, you can use the cable with that outlet. Leaving the key on would not be a good solution, as the power drain from having the ignition switch on would negate any charge...

  • Yes, the CTEK Comfort Connect Cigarette Plug Charger Cable # CTEK56263 will work with the cigarette-lighter plug on 1984 and 1987 Porsche 911's. I've added a link to a video review of this product for you.

  • Is There a Down Side to Charging a Battery Through the Cigarette Plug
  • Charging a battery through the cigarette lighter outlet would most likely take longer due to the smaller gauge wiring and longer path from the lighter outlet to the battery. Charge time will vary depending on the condition of the battery. If time is of the essence, connecting the charger directly to the battery would result in a quicker charge, but one cannot overlook the convenience of being able to plug the charger into the lighter socket.

  • Yes, the CTEK Comfort Connect Cigarette Plug Charger Cable part # CTEK56263 will work with the CTEK MXS 5.0 part 40-206. This option will allow you to charge the battery on your 2018 Porsche Panamera using the 12 volt outlet. I called my contact at CTEK to confirm this.

  • Outlet Kit Recommendation to Power a Battery Blanket in a Trailer
  • I believe what you are looking for is something like the 12 Volt Outlet Kit - 20 amps, # RM-9332. This kit would attach to the positive and negative post of a vehicle battery and provide a 12 volt accessory outlet for your battery blanket. You could attach this outlet directly to the truck battery or you could mount a separate battery on the trailer. If the purpose of this setup is for emergency situations and you intend to install a battery on the trailer, I recommend running a hot...

  • Can Battery be Charged through Cigarette Lighter with a CTEK Battery Charger on 1999 Porsche Boxster
  • Sweet car. For extended time it is best to connect the CTEK battery charger, # CTEK56158, directly to the battery. Otherwise you will be running the charger cables out of the vehicle and will have to close the door on the wiring. The wiring on the 12 volt port is also fairly thin so it is not the ideal set up for charging a battery. I recommend attaching the ring terminal connections to the battery and leaving that end tucked away with the battery. Then when you want to charge the battery...

  • Will CTEK Charger part # CTEK56353 Maintain Battery of 2006 Porsche Carrera 2S
  • I have a CTEK charger part # CTEK56353 like what you referenced and found that it does a great job keeping the car I have parked charged. The cigarette light adapter part # CTEK56263 makes it easy to connect to the vehicle battery as all you have to do is plug it in and your set. This is the only adapter we have for this charger so this would be the way to go.

  • What Chargers Does CTEK Battery-Health Indicator Cable # CTEK56380 Work With
  • The CTEK Battery-Health Indicator Cable w/ Panel Box # CTEK56380 referenced in your question is designed to work with the CTEK 12V Comfort Connect Chargers, such as part # CTEK56158. You will not be able to use the CTEK Plug Charger Cable # CTEK56263 that you referenced by itself, as you will still need to use the main charging unit. I have attached an installation video for this cable so you can see exactly how it installs and operates.
