TecMate OptiMate 3 Battery Optimiser (SAE)
March 22, 2020

Simple and it works and its waterproof!

Nothing much to say except to confirm that it does what it states it should do. It charges the battery, keeps it topped up and is waterproof. Although not recommended, this was proved in the last flood when i forgot to switch it off. When it was inspected, after the flood receded, the Optimate, left on the floor, was still working. Must be made by Timex as they keep on ticking, too! Sorry, showing my age.

TecMate OptiMate 3

Excellent service and good price, the length of mains cable to the unit and dc cable from the unit made it extremely easy to site in the garage. Most important it was just plug in and go. Other units need small/large battery whether it's in AGM mode etc......perfect for me ;-)

First charger - may as a well buy the best!

I'm a new biker and made the novice error of leaving the bike in the garage for weeks over winter and expecting it to start. Got a loan of a different charger to get me going but the hassle of removing the battery did my head in! Did my research and fount the Optimate 3 to be the best for performance and price. Arrived quickly and fitted the supplied extension leads into the battery and out for easy connection - now i can hook it up to trickle charge just by attaching it to the extension leads - no more messing about - winner for me!

Neat and compact. Does what it should.

Easy to fit and does exactly what it's supposed to. My only gripe is that the plug is much larger than on my previous model and I can't find a gap in the bodywork big enough to slip it through. This means that I have to take the seat off to plug it in. Not the end of the world but not as convenient as previous model.

About
TecMate

TecMate was founded on 1st September 1994 in Belgium, to continue the development and manufacturing of professional battery charging, battery testing and engine troubleshooting and tuning tools aimed at the power sport, marine, automotive, light aircraft and industrial equipment industries. TecMate's professional charger knowledge and experience led to the design of the OptiMate battery saving charging method in 1995, with the purpose of saving AGM, GEL and STD lead-acid batteries that have stopped working simply due to neglect. OptiMate now also charges, tests and maintains lithium (LiFePo4) batteries.

Questions and Answers

Questions and Answers

  • Hi, which Optimate would you recomend for a Triumph Tiger 800 xrx , the 3 or the 4 ?

    December 10, 2019

    The only significant difference between the Optimate 3 and 4 devices is the fact that with the OptiMate 4's Dual Program, you can now either charge the battery direct, or select the program to charge via the 12V port on CAN-bus equipped motorcycles (using an optional DIN plug lead).

  • Will this work on a Kawasaki versys 1000 (2016)

    October 15, 2019

    The OptiMate 3 is compatible.

  • Is this suitable for use with shido lithium batteries?

    June 5, 2019

    This is not suitable, you require a Litium charger, such as the TecMate OptiMate Lithium 0.8A Battery Optimiser (SAE)

  • Is this suitable for a Ducati multistrada enduro 1200 ? Thanks in advance.

    March 26, 2019

    This will be fine to connect to your Honda.

  • Will this be ok for a Ducati panigale 1299s 2015

    August 29, 2018

    Your Ducati uses the CAN-bus system, and so you require the Optimate 4 Dual battery charger, set to CAN-bus mode.

  • Will this be ok to sue on my bike? Suzuki gsxr600 K5 anniversary edition

    July 6, 2018

    The Optimate 3 will be fine, unless you have a Lithium battery fitted. If this is the case, you will require a Lithium battery charger.

  • Good morning, I have a 2017 HD Iron 883. It has a purpose fitted battery charger lead. Does the Optimate 3 come with a lead that will connect directly?

    March 25, 2018

    The SAE connector supplied with the Optimate is very similar to the one used by Harley Davidson, But we would recommend checking with your nearest Harley dealer before purchase.

  • Is it advisable to leave the charger plugged into the bike and switched on for days and weeks . Can any harm come to the bike or charger, many thanks .

    March 19, 2018

    This will not harm the bike or charger at all,as this is how the Optimate chargers are designed to operate.

  • Will I be able to fit this charger to my 2011 harley 48 which has a pre fitted charger lead I'm not sure if it is SAE?

    January 29, 2018

    The connector on your Harley will be an SAE style connector, and so the Optimate 3 should work fine.
