Customer Reviews for TecMate OptiMate 3 Battery Optimiser (SAE)
Works as it says on the lid
Very good. Charged bike up in no time. Would recommend it.Read more
Best bit of winter kit you can buy for your bike.
I've had an older version for years now and it's still working perfectly but with the addition of a couple more bikes I opted for another Techmate charger...It does what it says on the box , plug in and forget ...and when you consider the cost of replacing your battery , it pays for its self in just one season. Outstanding bit of kit.Read more

Work of the devil electricity management
The devils work, what's not to like.Read more
Easy to wire in or connect with the supplied hardware. Plug in and leave between trips to keep the battery topped up. Superseded by newer models but was great value in the sale and works perfectly.Read more
Wouldn't Be Without It
Got one on my old bike , bought another one for the new one . Wouldn't be without it . Got the first one about 15 years ago , it is still keeping the battery in tip top condition .Read more
Does what it says on the label.Read more
Keeping charge in my 'charger'
Thought it would be a good idea to keep the bike regularly charged as it's used all too infrequently. I've only had it a few weeks but it seems to flash from 'charge' to 'maintenance' and back so I guess it's doing what it should and certainly, the battery is strong when I start it now. Service from SBS excellent as ever at a keen price. Get one!Read more
Same as Triumph model
Top model, same one as Triumph boxed one from a dealer, so they must think it's worthy of their name. Not tried it yet as no need, but come the winter...Read more
Charge of the bike brigade
Plug and charge. Easy to use with either clips or fixed lead. Easy to follow instructions.Read more
