Literally plug and play

Battery charger does exactly what it says on the tin. Quite literally plug and play. Connect to mains, connect to bike, turn on mains, bike charges. Plenty of different battery charging and conditioning modes and easy to read and understand instruction manual let's you know exactly what the charger is doing.

Nice bit of kit!

Advised by SBS to get this to charge my flat HD Iron 883 battery. Not a lot to say really other than it worked a treat! It arrived, plugged directly in using the HD tender cable and job done! Would def. recommend!

can be used on cars too.

I have used an Optimate 3 for 16 years on my motorbikes with perfect results. I read that the Optimate 3 can also be used on small cars, so purchased another with extension lead ect for keeping my car battery topped up under my carport.. Works perfectly, and can of course be used on other bikes when the lockdown is over and car in use again.This version also recovers most sulphated batteries too, so win win for me.

OptiMate 3 Battery Optimiser

I have used OptiMate 3 for 20 years or so and never had a problem, so tried, tested and trusted. I now need to charge 3 bikes so more optiMates required. (I went for separate units rather than a multi charger). Supply by Sportsbike shop was on time and a keen price, communication by them is clear and precise and full returns procedure (if required) clearly explained.

Simple, easy to use, perfect

Never had to use battery charger before the lockdown, because I was riding every day. I was a bit worried how difficult is to connect it to the bike. I have to say it's very simple. Literally just a plug it in and done job. Very good quality, easy to set up and does the job. Highly recommend it.

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).
