CTEK, a leading global brand in the care and maintenance of vehicle batteries, has launched the MXS 3.8, a 3.8 amp smart battery charger, featuring advanced diagnostic, recovery, charging and maintenance capability with an easy to follow display.

The MXS 3.8 offers a unique seven step-approach to battery care, available at the touch of a button, to ensure that any lead-acid battery is optimally conditioned, charged and maintained, indefinitely if required.


Using advanced, patented technology to measure the battery’s power and health, the CTEK charging system will ensure that the appropriate action is taken to maximise the power and lifetime of the battery – its unique technology means that it can safely maintain all types of vehicle battery.

The MXS 3.8 has two analysis stages that quickly identify whether the battery is capable of taking a charge and also holding charge (batteries can be revived from as low as 2v); whilst SNOWFLAKE mode, a special cold weather feature, can be selected to deliver a higher 14.7V charge to ensure a perfect charge is achieved during cold weather (below 5°C).Patented float and pulse maintenance stages ensure that batteries once fully charged can be maintained indefinitely if the vehicle is unused for an extended period without risk of over charging or under charging.

The MXS 3.8 comes with Small Battery mode too, that delivers the same seven step-approach to battery care at 0.8 amp level of charge, the perfect solution for smaller batteries found on for example motorcycles, jet-skis and ride-on mowers.


Peter White, Category Manager for CTEK said “Whilst the MXS 3.8 is a brand new charger in our range it has been introduced to replace the award winning MXS 3.6 charger – a tough act to follow – and it comes with lots of useful additional features. The MXS 3.8 represents the ideal combination of technology, value and simplicity to make it the perfect choice for everyday household use.”

The new MXS 3.8 is really safe for the user too, welded casing makes the smart charger a completely sealed unit and a new improved design of cable provides greater cable flexibility and protects against the risk of breakage, particularly in extreme cold weather.

As with all CTEK products, the MXS 3.8 is fully automatic, foolproof to connect, spark proof and reverse-polarity protected, for user safety. Extremely clean voltage and current delivery ensures vehicle electronics are protected meaning that there is no need to disconnect a battery when charging.


The CTEK MXS 3.8 comes with a five year warranty, is easy to operate, fully automatic and requires no specialist knowledge for use – an easy to understand display allows the complete charging process to be followed. SRP 64.99 inc. VAT.  A full range of additional connection accessories are also available for added user convenience.
