Pros: build quality
Cons: instructions slightly vague
" Well made and packaged, instructions slightly vague for a lay person - but a massive improvement on old & bulky chargers.
Early days - it is connected to a car that only has occasional use and so far it seems to be working absolutely fine. "

Car Make Citroen C3
" Cars these days are too complex for their owners' good. I don't drive my C3 enough to keep the battery charged up so I was in the market for a charger. Trouble is that just connecting a pair of crocodile clips to a battery threatens all sorts of problems for the car's electronics. After a lot of online research and contact with my local Citroen garage and Citroen UK (neither much help), the CTEK MXS5 looked like the best bet. So I took the plunge and ordered one online from Halfords from whence I collected it on the due date. I set it up and plugged it in and switched on. Nothing blew up! About 4hrs 30mins later, the charger light was green. Job done. Something I did not undertand, however, was the instruction contained within the (otherwise excellent) instruction booklet concerned charging the battery while still mounted in the car, ie, to connect one croc clip to part of the car body and not the terminal. Why? The C3 owners manual says the same. But CTEK chargers come complete with a lead with eyelet connectors both of which need to be attached permanently to the battery. Never mind. It worked! "
