Customer Reviews for TecMate OptiMate 2 Battery Optimiser (SAE)
Perfect to keep your battery charged
This is the second Optimate I have bought I got this for my second bike. They are perfect to keep the battery charged whilst the bike is not in use. Very easy to fit a charger lead to the bike. Then once done you can just plug in and leave it. It has a nice long lead too so you don't have to move the bike to be close to a socket. It's a very well made compact unit. I wouldn't use anything else.Read more

Long overdue purchase
Should have bough one of these a long time ago. A flat battery forced me to do something about it and duly purchased this on recommendation from friends. Seemed to do a good job but turns out that the battery was a bit too long in the tooth and lost the ability to hold its charge. Still, unit has now bene purchased and will allow me to keep the new battery in good condition. Seems a great tool so far and easy to setup and use.Read more

Excellent all round
This is the second Optimate charger I have purchased the first one has worked excellently on my 2 litre diesel beemers as well as my bikes. This one was purchased due to the cars being stood up due to the lockdown. They are very easy to use and come with both a permanent fitting lead which attaches to the battery terminals and one that has crocodile clips. I have fitted the permanent leads to all my vehicles so it is just plug and play. The charger is pretty self explanatory and can be left connected for continuous trickle charging without frying your batteries. I wouldn't hesitate to buy another at any time.Read more
GReat for post lockdown!
As it was some time until able to use bike, this item ticked all the boxes, and hopefully will prevent the need for replacement battery, as keeps fully charged on the bike for long periods of in activity. Service was spot on as would expect now from sportsbikeshop.Read more

How do you determine the maximum charge level?February 11, 2019
For a battery that appears healthy the voltage is limited at 13.6V for 30 minutes while the circuit monitors the actual voltage and the current absorbed by the battery, during which the green maintain LED remains on. If during the 30 minutes the automatic circuit senses the battery requires further charging, the program reverts to bulk charge infrequently until a full charge is achieved.
