ct5_timetogo_packaging_frontCT5 TIME TO GO charger launched

Isn’t it great when you have control over your own time? Finding time for car maintenance can prove difficult, especially when you don’t know how long a task is going to take. Up until now, this has been the case for battery charging, a vital activity that can prevent vehicle breakdowns and extend battery life. That is all about to change thanks to CTEK, a leading global brand in the care and maintenance of vehicle batteries, who have launched the CT5 TIME TO GO charger. A simple to use 12V, 5Amp battery charger that allows you to stay in control and plan your day, by accurately predicting remaining charging time.

The CT5 TIME TO GO charger takes a different approach to battery charging – it tells you when your battery will be ready for use. A series of LED lights indicate the different charging stages and how long it will take before the battery is charged and ready to go. There are also indicators that tell you when you can safely TRY to start your vehicle if you are charging a flat battery and when the battery is ready to GO.

Easy to use and fully automatic, the CT5 TIME TO GO charger uses advanced technology to constantly monitor the battery’s power and health and take action when required. The CT5 TIME TO GO charger has three key charging & maintenance stages to maximise the power and lifetime of the battery. It will make sure your battery is always in good condition and you can even repair a discharged battery that has become flat. As well as the NORMAL charging mode the charger has a RECOND mode for batteries that haven’t been charged for long periods of time and need a really good battery condition and re-charge and AGM mode for batteries used in Start-Stop vehicles.

Sten Hammargren, Consumer Business Unit Manager at CTEK said: “We are really exciting to be bringing this product to market! The CT5 TIME TO GO charger is the first charger in the world to tell you exactly when your battery will be charged and ready to go. It’s a reflection of the demands that today’s consumer has for household tools and accessories that can keep them in the picture – we’ve seen it with other household goods such as washing machines and tumble dryers and now you can have this type of information from your battery charger!”

As with all CTEK products, the CT5 TIME TO GO charger is fool proof 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. It can be attached to the battery indefinitely if required without risk of over or under charging.

The CT5 TIME TO GO battery charger comes with a five-year warranty. A full range of additional connection accessories are also available for added user convenience.

Tyre Spot Autocentres, which is part of the Pirelli Performance Centre (PPC) network, has opened its new retail branch in Durham.

To celebrate Tyre Spot Durham held an opening event at the new centre with a host of activities for the local community, while also raising money for The Sir Bobby Robson Foundation.

Pirelli supported the event by providing its renowned Formula One simulator for guests to try and emulate the Grand Prix greats.

Former Newcastle United defender and current Durham AFC Chairman Olivier Bernard and Gateshead FC midfielder John Oster joined the event to meet with guests – and they also put their driving skills to the test in the Pirelli Formula One simulator.

Throughout the weekend, money was raised for The Sir Bobby Robson Foundation, which funds projects within the Newcastle upon Tyne Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust that directly benefit cancer patients from across north east England and Cumbria.

Tyre Spot Autocentres is part of the PPC network and achieved platinum status in their first audit. The network is a group of carefully selected audited tyre dealers that offer the highest possible standards of service to drivers of performance cars, looking for the most exclusive dealer experience available. To become a Pirelli Performance Centre each dealership has to meet a set of demanding criteria, ensuring that only the best achieve PPC status.

Pirelli UK Managing Director Dominic Sandivasci said: “It’s great to see our PPCs getting involved with the local community and putting on a grand opening event. We are delighted that Tyre Spot Durham supported The Sir Bobby Robson Foundation and that we could contribute with our Forumla One simulator. ”

Johnathon Shaw, Managing Director, Tyre Spot Autocentres Durham commented: “We are very proud that our new Durham branch is a PPC and we are grateful for the support Pirelli provide by being part of this network. The event has been a great success and it’s fantastic that we’ve been able to raise some money for such a great charity. The Durham branch is now open six days a week and we look forward to welcoming customers to experience our top-class service.”
