Reliable battery maintenance

Bought this to replace an older optimate that had served me well. This version improves on it with the much better SAE connector and clear charge state indicator lights. Charger appears well built without being too bulky.

Avoid flat battery disappointment

Now my second Optimate device. Works well, easy to operate. Keeps battery in tip top condition. Can be a bit fiddly to fit the connectors to the battery but that depends on the design of your bike as opposed to the charger.

Quality charger

Robust charger without being too chunky. Can't comment on bringing old batteries back to life, as only used on a new motorcycle battery - but did work as expected. Instructions could include more on how frequently to use the charger, and how long to keep it connected.

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.
