Maintaining A Boat's Battery Is More Straightforward Than Many Realise, Says CTEK

LONDON, Feb. 1, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- In order to avoid costly breakdowns, CTEK, a global battery maintenance and care brand, is highlighting to boat owners the importance and simplicity of ensuring vessels' batteries are correctly installed and maintained.

Batteries in boats can cause breakdowns for a number of reasons. For example, incompatibility with the craft can result in the battery not being able to supply enough power. Additionally, it is also common for batteries to fail as a result of unfinished or incomplete maintenance routines, which can leave the battery undercharged, overcharged or not charged at all. High-quality boat batteries can be expensive to replace, making it crucial for owners to make sure that a proper maintenance routine is upheld if they wish to avoid untimely costs as well as inconvenience.

Boat owners who rely on professionals to maintain and repair their crafts may not be aware that caring for batteries is a straightforward process that does not require any specialist knowledge. By utilising a smart battery charger, such as the CTEK D250S Dual Smart Charger, and a CTEK Smartpass Complete Management Unit, users can connect and forget.

Both of these devices can be left safely attached to a boat's battery indefinitely, working in unison to constantly monitor the charge and health levels. The battery charger can take its power from the alternator when the engine is running or from solar, if available, when the engine is not. The charger doesn't require access to AC power in order to function. Smartpass manages the energy, maximising the efficiency and distribution of energy. Such a simple routine ensures that the battery is at its optimal charge at all times and has sufficient output to power all of the electrical applications on board.

Jan-Ulf Soderberg, head of brand and marketing at CTEK, says: "Battery failure in boats is relatively common, and many boat owners have to replace their batteries every couple of years. However, in many cases these problems are completely avoidable when the correct maintenance routine is upheld. Making use of a smart battery charger is a very simple process that prolongs a battery's life, meaning fewer trips to the boat yard and more money in the kitty."
