Top product

Have been using Optimates for many years for my bikes. It is a great reliable product. This model has more output and is used on a heavy duty car battery fitted to a vehicle that is rarely used...It is reasonably large in size compared to other rivals is the only issue (if that is an issue to anyone) but that makes it easy easy readable.
First class service

I bought an Optimate 6 to keep the battery on my 1989 Porsche 928 GT conditioned NOT realising that it was only suitable for Li/ion batteries !!!. Called the shop and spoke to Bradley who was very understanding and helpful !. We arranged for the return of it and he shipped me out an Optimate 5 which is the right one for my car - it arrived the NEXT DAY !. Very happy !. GREAT SERVICE AND SUPPORT !. Nice to know these days !. THANK YOU !. Terry
Sturdy and Reliable

I already have an Optimate 4 for my motorbike, so when I saw this Optimate 5 at a discounted price I didn't hesitate to buy it. The charger is simple to set up and gives you a visual guide of the diagnostics and the result of its test and charge cycle. I strongly recommend it.
