Correction Notice – CTEK XS 0.8 battery charger
On page 25, Father’s Day Bike Stuff, in the August print edition of the Cycle Torque magazine, there is an article for the CTEK XS 0.8.
The photo appearing above the article is for a different product, the CTEK Lithium XS. The article should have a picture of the CTEK XS 0.8 not the CTEK Lithium XS. We apologise for the mistake.
