CTEK Smarter Chargers are safer to charge with because their spark-free, short-circuit-proof design incorporates a feature that prevents reverse polarity. In other words, the charger will know if you attach one end to the wrong battery post and will not operate if it is attached incorrectly. Conveniently, the red alarm light on the charger alerts you if it wasn’t attached correctly so that you can get it connected properly.
#8 Reliable and nearly indestructible
CTEK Smarter Chargers are durable and can perform under extreme weather environments, with a temperature range of (-4°F to +122°F). They are shockproof, weatherproof, dustproof, and fully approved for outdoor use (IP44-IP65).

Motorists do not need to have a specific knowledge of batteries or their charging methods. With each Smarter Charger intended for unsupervised use, CTEK is foolproof to connect. There is no need to even disconnect the battery during use – it’s simply ‘plug and play’.
