Review: CTEK CT5 Powersport charger for bikes & cars, sold in India by Naredi

In this lockdown, if you’ve not used your car or bike for prolonged time, it is likely that its battery would have drained and you will have trouble starting your vehicle. When the car doesn’t start, conventional way was to push it on a straight line and then try starting, or get another car close by and jump start your car by connecting to battery of another car. First approach needs 4-5 strong men and a straight stretch of road, while second approach needs another vehicle, jump cables and the know-how of how to do it. Both methods are neither easy, nor convenient.

I used the CTEK CT5 Powersport to charge battery of my Apache RTR 160 and it worked like charm. I didn't have a drained battery though. Mine was zero maintenance battery which was fairly charged as I had used the bike recently. So within minutes I got 'care' light on, indicating battery is fully charged.

How does CTEK car & bike chargers work?

  • The device takes charge from AC source (we have to plug it in to wall socket and then connect the other end to car/bike battery). This means CTEK battery charger is not really portable like powerbanks. It doesn't store power/charge in itself, only helps recharge Lead Acid/Lithium batteries using Alternate Current source.
  • Then using cables provided CTEK CT5 powerport can be connected to car or bike’s battery. Required connectors are provided along with CTEK charger.
  • Device is smart enough to assess the status of the battery and if not charged, will charge the battery with power from AC source. CTEK has fail proof mechanisms to prevent overcharge or any damage to the battery or self. You don't have to sit and wait. Once charged fully 'Care' light will come up. Then you can disconnect the charger and start your car/bike.
  • You can leave the car/bike connectors connected to the vehicle itself and just plug in the cable with charger when needed. This will reduce need for opening up battery cover each time.
