LITHIUM XS
12V/5A
EFFECTIVE LiFePO4 BATTERY
CHARGING AND MAINTENANCE
The LITHIUM XS is an advanced microprocessor controlled charger
specially designed to recharge and maintain Lithium-Ion Phosphate
(LiFePO4) batteries — maximising their performance and lifespan. With up
to 5A of charge current available the LITHIUM XS is extremely flexible and
will charge LiFePO4 batteries from 5Ah to 60Ah and maintain up to 120Ah.
Operation is simple and charging will commence upon connection. With
no need to disconnect the battery from the vehicle, at charge start the
LITHIUM XS will automatically reset any low voltage protection electronics
(Battery Management System) fitted. Charging can be restarted manually
at any time using the "Reset" button.
The LITHIUM XS is a fully automatic "connect and forget" charger with
8 charging steps including a testing sequence to show if the LiFePO4
battery can take and retain charge, a unique maximisation step to restore
full capacity, and patented maintenance charging to ensure maximum
performance even after months of inactivity. Splash proof and dust proof
(IP65) the LITHIUM XS is easy and safe to use, protects vehicle electronics,
spark-free, reverse polarity protected and short circuit proof. The LITHIUM XS
features a 5-year warranty.

UNIQUE 8 STEP CHARGING FROM CTEK
CTEK COMFORT CONNECT–clamp
Complete LiFePO4 battery care — unique and patented system to
recover, charge and maintain LiFePO4 batteries to maximise performance
and extend life.
1 STEP 1 ACCEPT
Tests if the battery can accept charge. This step prevents charging from
proceeding on a defective battery.
Safe to use — user safety through spark free operation and reverse
polarity protection. Vehicle electrical safety through exceptionally clean
voltage and current delivery with no surges or spikes. No need to disconnect battery from the vehicle when charging.
2 STEP 2 BULK
Charging with maximum current until approximately 90% battery capacity.
Connect and forget — simple plug and play operation. Manual Reset
available.

Unique 8 step charging — the patented 8 step programme tests
battery condition and, charges and maintains to ensure maximum LiFePO4
battery life and performance. FLOAT/PULSE maintenance ensures ideal
battery care during periods of inactivity.
Extends battery life — the unique features of CTEK chargers combine
to maximise performance and extend LiFePO4 battery life.
3 STEP 3 ABSORPTION
Charging with declining current to maximize up to 95% battery
4 STEP 4 ANALYZE
Tests if the battery can hold charge. Batteries that can not hold charge
may need to be replaced.
5 STEP 5 COMPLETION
Final charge with reduced current up to approximately 98% battery
capacity.
6 STEP 6 MAXIMIZATION
Final charge with maximum voltage up to 100% battery capacity.

8 STEP 8 PULSE
Maintaining the battery at 95–100% capacity. The charger monitors the
battery voltage and gives a pulse when necessary to keep the battery fully
charged.
