Keep your battery alive

Use these on all of our motorbikes. Keeps the battery alive during the months that we are not riding.
Excellent quality and has never let me down.
Optimate Lithium Battery Conditioner
11 December 2023 by Michael J
Having used Optimate chargers for years, I did not hesitate to place an order for this item as my new bike has a lithium battery. The usual fast and reliable online ordering procedure but was disappointed in the week that it took for the item to arrive as it was posted via 2nd class Royal Mail so not the usual fast and much appreciated service that I have come to expect from SBS. Overall, happy in the knowledge that I now have the charger and the bike is wrapped up for the Winter and cooking nicely.

An absolute must-have
04 December 2023 by Keith J
An absolute must-have for these long wet winters with no chance of taking the bike out, especially when the gritters have dumped their load of salt. Keeps the battery in tip top condition and is so easy to use. Would recommend to anyone. 5 stars
Fit and forget

I have bought several Optimate battery conditioners over the years. Having purchased a CCM, I needed one specifically for a Li ion battery. I looked no further than SBS as they are always competitive on price....and service. The unit was promptly delivered and does exactly as it is promoted. It is a 5* product - no question.

Bought this when I bought a lithium battery for my Fireblade. Never a minutes bother from battery or charger. Charges quickly and love the way you have the facility to leave it trickle charging. That way you never get a flat battery. Bought a lithium battery for my GPz900R as well and for all the money it is, decided to get another charger as well so that I can leave the 900R on trickle charge too.
Excellent product, price & service
28 September 2023 by Tony L
One of my bikes (KTM 1190 Adventure R) is highly susceptible to all manner of faults (e.g. pre-start / ECU checks fail and can disable the bike) if anything other than a 'fully charged & in perfect condition' battery is attached to it.

Accordingly, I purchased a 'Battery Optimiser' and my KTM is now a much happier beast, as am I.

Indeed, I've been so impressed with it, I've since ordered two more (with three bikes, all fitted with Lithium batteries, it seems like a sensible course of action, i.e. to keep said batteries in tip-top & fully charged condition).

I also have to commend the ease of online purchase, the price and super-rapid delivery.
Optimate lithium charger - Brilliant
21 September 2023 by TCT
New bike has lithium battery so needed to purchase this - good price/quick delivery/easy to use/efficiently re-charged battery.
Definitely recommend
My battery is in tip top shape

New bike came with a lithium battery so I needed to upgrade my optimiser. Typical high quality from Optimate, works brilliantly. Simple to use, and gives confidence that your battery will be at it best for a long time. Love it!

Bought this charger for my bike which has a lithium battery, already had the standard optimate. Put the battery on charge, dead easy to use, works a treat. Good quality charger and reliable. Excellent price as usual from sportsbikeshop. Good service and staff very helpful when I tried submitting a price match.
Optimate again

Another excellent charger at a reasonable price added to my garage.
Seems to do the job
28 July 2023 by Anonymous
Does the job, easy to use since it is just plug&play, just a bit confusing at first when understanding all the lights. Bear in mind this is only suitable for lithium batteries - If you want to charge lead ones, you will need another charger.
Switch on & forget
12 April 2023 by Andrew S
I had to replace my original Optimate charger because my latest bike bike has a Lithium battery. The operation is identical to my previous charger, plug it in and forget 24/7 365 days a year. The lead acid battery on my previous bike worked perfectly after 5 years, I've no reason to doubt this latest charger will provide the same results. Minimal electricity is used, these things seem to work forever!
Great Little Lithium Charger
28 March 2023 by Maciej S
Works as expected, although the led indicators aren't clear it does work great.
Safe charger
28 March 2023 by Gary S
excellent quality, simple to use, robust, safe, well made, just the job

It charges batteries efficiently.
Does what it says on box.

Good for LifePo4 even with Scottoiler and Thunderbox attached. No fault codes but do not leave on at all times.
Third Optimate I have and always faultless.
Green covered charge lead stops wrong charger connection.
New battery optimizer
23 October 2022 by Kevin P
Just got a 1200 Speed RS so needed a lithium battery optimizer. The charger looks good but the battery connections plug is huge and Im not sure how I continue with it as the part that stays on the bike doesn't hide too well.

Questions and Answers

Questions and Answers

  • Hi, I need a charger for a HJTZ14S-FPZ Lithium Li Po4 battery fitted to a 2022 Triumph Rally Explorer. Would this be suitable? Thank you.

    February 6, 2023

    Yes, this is suitable for your Lithium battery.

  • Hi, Will this charger work with the following: Antigravity Batteries AG-1601 Battery

    May 3, 2018

    Although we are unfamiliar with the Antigravity range, the charger should be sufficient for lithium batteries with a range of between 3Ah and 50Ah.

  • Hi. Would this be ok for a 12v 2.4ah battery? I notice it says 3ah+. Cheers, Peter

    December 5, 2017

    Unfortunately this battery charger is for lithium batteries only. However, we would suggest using the Optimate 4 as this works within the Ah range that you require.
