Insurance for Winter

Haven't ridden since the 80s but am back with a newish bike. The Optimate3 is a precaution in case I don't use the bike for several weeks. I've attached the (included) flying lead to the battery and I've threaded it under the seat and hangs discreetly and is conveniently located to be easily connected to the main unit. So far so good. The only negatives are that the manual is quite cryptic and a slight annoyance is that the lights on the unit are not isolated enough from each other which means that when one is illuminated the neighbour can appear illuminated as well.

Optimate is a must for a fair weather biker.

Batteries are the bain of a bikers life. unfortunately I rarely use mine in winter so battery savers are a must. Better easier connection on these new ones. Sportsbikeshop were inexpensive and give excellent service. always look here first.

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).

  • Good morning, I have a 2017 HD Iron 883. It has a purpose fitted battery charger lead. Does the Optimate 3 come with a lead that will connect directly?
