CTEK® 56-158-1 MULTI US 3300 12V Battery Charger

Catalog #: 97004.1010
CTEK® Part #: 56-158-1
Description
Practical all-round battery charger that every household should have.

The MULTI US 3300 is a versatile battery charger in a compact format that makes it convenient and easy to charge and maintain all household vehicles. The special cold mode means that you can also charge during cold winters days without problems. The MULTI US 3300 satisfies all the home’s battery charging needs as it charges all types of 12V batteries such as your car, motorcycle, lawnmower, jet ski, snowmobile, caravan or smaller size boats.
Details
  • Fully automatic –
for charging and maintenance There is no need for any specific knowledge of batteries or their charging methods; the MULTI US 3300 will take care it. Once switched to the prefered mode, the charger takes its own readings and then begins to charge the battery. Once it is finished charging, it will automatically switch to its maintenance phase–CTEK’s patented pulse charging– arguably the most caring mode for a battery connected for a long time. Simply connect it to solve most battery problems from the past.
  • Flexible for different
battery needs The MULTI US 3300 is specifically developed for different needs, vehicles and batteries. There is a choice between three different modes. The low-current mode (the motorcycle icon) is perfect for smaller 12V batteries such as motorbikes, lawnmowers, jet skies, snowmobiles, etc. The higher current mode (the car icon) is for automotive or marine applications with larger batteries. Finally, an additional winter mode (the snowflake) is specifically aimed at charging and maintenance in cold weather. It is also perfectly suited for Optima Red Top batteries.
  • Patented desulfation
function Unused batteries lose their power and their life is shortened through sulfation. It is also more difficult to charge sulfated batteries. The MULTI US 3300 has a patented method for reconditioning sulfated batteries. The charger analyzes the state of the battery and, if possible, recovers the battery and its power.
  • Compatible with other
electronic equipment Most vehicles today are equipped with sensitive electronic systems. Unlike less-sophisticated chargers, there is no need to disconnect the battery; the MULTI US 3300 is specially designed to not damage electronic systems.
  • Made for all weather
conditions and situations The MULTI US 3300 is prepared to charge and maintain, no matter the weather, temperature or situation. The MULTI US 3300 is extremely robust and water and dust resistant (IP65 classification). The MULTI US 3300 is certified for use between –4ºF and +122ºF. In order to make things easier and more convenient, the Comfort Connect (eyelet terminals) can be permanently connected to the vehicle’s battery.
  • Designed for safety
All CTEK models are designed to consider the safety of the user. They are spark free, making the connection much easier and safer considering the gases batteries normally produce. The MULTI US 3300 is also protected from reverse-polarity connections and is short-circuit proof. A red light on the charger will simply indicate that the charging cannot begin until the user has connected the charger correctly.

*) Back current drain is what drains the battery if the charger is connected without the power cord connected.
**) Ripple describes the quality of the current and voltage. A high current ripple heats the battery and shortens its life. A linear charger has a current ripple of 70–400% which is much larger than the maximum 5% for a modern sealed battery. High voltage ripple could harm other equipment that is connected to the battery. MULTI US 3300 delivers voltage and current with very low ripple. The battery has a long service life and there is no risk of damage to other electronic devices connected to the battery.
