This is the second opportunity that I have had the pleasure and honor of reviewing product(s) from Clore Automotive. Clore Automotive has always been a household name when it comes to the auto industry, repair shops, and dealerships, but to someone who may have not thought of who they were prior to me sharing some of these reviews, and giveaways, they are also a name that they want “everyone” to know!
So I have a couple of products up for review today, and yes, keep an eye out for them, but Clore Automotive will be giving you the chance to win your own as well! First up, we have the Charge It! Smart Battery Charger. Keep in mind this is meant to be plugged in, and used in your garage, or overhang etc.., this is meant to help recharge a battery, that can still be saved, whether it is in the vehicle or out. Please read the owners manual on proper use, and care of the charger.
At only 3.9 pounds, don’t let the light weight of this device fool you. It packs quite a charge when you need it to, and allows you to charge a multitude of batteries including ones in your:
- Personal Watercraft
- Lawn and Garden Lead Based Batteries
Now while it can help rescue a battery that is not helping start your vehicle, this is meant to help support your Lead Based Batteries, so that they are ready summer or winter, for whatever purpose you need them to work. It gives protection against arcing with its smart clamp technology which gives you the peace of mind, no matter who is using it, whether it is you, your spouse, or the young driver in the house, learning how to keep things safe for the very first time.
Properly maintaining your batteries is something you should be concerned about year round. Although in the colder months, your batteries are more likely to lose power due to non-use and this is where the Clore Automotive Charge It Smart Battery Charger is a resourceful tool, to make sure that your battery will help start your vehicle when you need it too. Having this as a lifeline, to provide safe charging options for all types of Lead Acid Batteries allows you to simply charge things with the press of a few buttons. If you are like me, and want that added protection of a portable emergency jump starter, be sure to check out my review of the JNCAIR portable Jump Starter from Clore Automotive as well.
So what are some of the key points about the Charge It! Smart Battery Charger?
- Automatic operation
- Charges all battery types (AGM, Gel, Flooded, etc.)
- Reverse Polarity Protection
- No sparking or arcing – Smart Clamp Technology
- Display provides state of charge or battery voltage
The Charge It! Line is an affordable option for those who want to keep the batteries in their vehicles, personal watercraft, and motorcycles, ready to run in any season, in a safe and convenient way.
Now knowing exactly how well a battery is doing, or knowing how the battery of someone else is doing, can be handled by using the Clore Automotive Charge It Handheld Battery Tester. Now while the CT7 packs the power to perform 3 different functions from battery testing, starting system testing and charging system (alternator output) testing, for the everyday do-it-yourself person, I am solely going to focus on the battery testing part of it for the purpose of this review. While I love that it has the other functions, I wanted to focus on the one that everybody should become familiar with, to keep their batteries maintained to a level that keeps replacement costs down, and can teach those from young to old, how to make sure your battery is functioning to its peak performance.
So what are some key features of this handheld tester, I am glad you asked!
- Tests 12 Volt batteries and systems
- Properly assesses Conventional, AGM, Gel Cell, Spiral Wound and Marine Starting batteries
- Tests against 5 rating systems: CCA, CA, IEC, EN, DIN
- Reverse polarity protection
- Over voltage protection
- Convenient, compact size for portability
As you can see in the pics below, my battery in my Nissan Xterra passed the test! Are you sure your battery is ready for anything? Grab your Clore CT7 CHARGE IT! 12-Volt Digital Battery Tester at Amazon, and know that you are ready.
Weighing in under a pound, you can’t beat the performance level of this tester, and the brand name of Clore Automotive that stands behind the products that they make. Knowing how your battery works, what it requires, and having the equipment that you need to maintain them is what Clore Automotive does best. Be sure to check out the giveaway, for your own Battery Charger, and Battery Tester, and enter to win one of each for your own!
Thanks for taking time to stop by A Medic’s World today, and taking time to read this review, would love to see who might use these the most in your family, and if these are things you plan to teach your children for safety, and for knowledge on how to help themselves when help might not be readily available. ~Tom
