Awesome battery tester and charger.

I researched the product I needed and it performs as expected. Extension lead helps greatly so consider this as well. Fast delivery from Tanya and good price as well.

At first use, it appears to meet the claims made. Instructions are a bit weak, especially in description of the amps supplied in the float phase 7. amps for up to 10 days, and permanently connected at 2-5 amps in the pulse maitnenancecontinually can be expected to reduce the acid level in the battery as the water is converted to hydrogen and oxygen which, susprise surprise disappears ! By connecting a digital ammeter between one lead of the charger and the battery terminal, first at a safe 10 amp rating, then 1, then to milli -ampsindicates an almost non existing current. This may or not have been potentially harmful to the charger or ammeter, and even a false indication of the charging since the interference was picked up by the charger, but it was done anyway. If accurate the instructions should more clearly describe the amps decline in each phase in order to reassure those with enough understanding of chemistry and batteries, but necessarily enough understanding of the charger reality. I well remember my first car, a 1838 Morris 8 where the light swtich had 4 positions in sequence .... low charge, high charge, side lights, head lights. Thus going to lights automatically engaged first the high charge mode for the dynamo to keep the battery charged. In daylight, the low charge selection did the necessary for battery charge, minimising the water dissociation and loss as gas - but it was surely less than 5 amps and still the battery fluid level needed checking and refilling each month. I am well aware that life today with alternators and soolid state circuits is a lot more intelligent and battery water loss is no longer an issue. But 5 amps is 5 amps which can dry out battery cells quite quickly. Always willing to learn, I invite your (Tayna or CTEC) comments

Great charger as usual from CTEK. Also can test battery/charging system as described. Maybe the only bad point is that it doesn't actually show you voltage/amps when it's testing only good/ok/bad result but that is fine. Overall I'm very happy with this charger.

Ordered this as our XC90 battery was flat as a pancake as a result of this lockdown. After 2 days of charging, the battery was fully reconditioned. Also used it on my Caterham. Service from Tayna was excellent.

Thought my previous c-tec charger was playing up or needed new battery, turns out it was the connecting lead was problem.

It did exactly what i needed it to, rescued my battery and now its trickle charging over winter, if you need a 5 star charger this is it

Not used it yet but I bought it to replace a worn out /broken old one. No reason to believe this won’t be good... I know these models, knew exactly what I was after ( blue button, but non arctic model )... been watching and waiting for a good deal.. got a cracking deal via Tanya with an extra 20% off via eBay deal... so made it irresistible ?

I was looking for a new battery charger to replace the one I bought from Halfords in 1965. This time I wanted one that would do everything I need to maintain and test the battery and circuits on my 26 year old Renault Clio, MG TD and Honda scooter. The only one I could find to do all that wsa the Ctek MXS 5.0 Test and Charge and Tanya Batteries seemed to give the best deal for this product. I have now used the charger for a couple of weeks and found it to work perfectly so far. It is very clever and easy to use and seems to be as fail safe as you could get. I deem it is good value for money as well in terms of the default costs it will save i.e. by now avoiding any expenses of recovering from battery/alternator failure, etc.

Good piece of kit but no digital readout

When Plugged in on Battery (Without Mains) Ctek MXS5.0 went into Test mode and when the Battery mode Button was pressed It showed how much power in the Battery. Not Tried the Altenator Test. On Mains it charges the battery without fault. The LED's show up until it reaches full Charge. Good Charger especially with the Test mode built in.

Neat Compact and easy to use, not really used it much but I have tested a couple of bike batteries and the device confirms that they have had it. I expect the other functions to perform just as well, only time will tell if it lives up to all expectations but I see no reason why not, I am at this point very happy with this product.

Revived a couple of dead motorbike batteries with the ctek mxs 5.0. Great piece of kit!

The charger arrived the day after ordering. The charger is well made and feels good quality. It has a test facility which is very useful for testing battery condition, battery condition during starting and alternator condition. I bought it to keep the battery topped up on a car that is stored for most of the year and it is perfect for the job.
