TecMate OptiMate Lithium 0.8A
I own an optimate 4 but recently bought a lithium battery for my 1250 bandit. The battery is so light! Unfortunately the charger I had will not charge lithium batteries so I got this one. I have only given 4 stars as I've only used it once, but with these cold mornings of late I'm sure I will be using it more!. It's a well made quality charger and does the job required. The cheapest price I could find was from Sportsbikeshop, Excellent fast delivery as always, I would certainly recommend.
Good price and great service.
Have relied on OptiMate's chargers for years. Excellent products and I think this one for my new Africa Twin will be just the job. It arrived very promptly ( a day early!) so I am impressed all round. Thank you
Top Tec Mate!
A really useful charger if you have a lithium Ion battery on your bike. Charges just as it says on the box. Easy to connect whether your battery is on or off the bike. Well made with secure terminals and connectors. Will look after your Lithium battery particularly through winter. Usual brilliant service from the guys at SBS. A bargain at the price. Recommended.
Lithium batteries are a bit of a pain in cold weather with the full cranking power only available when warm. So in winter to warm the battery you either leave the lights and ignition on to discharge or crank it over lots of times to get the full crank power to start. This means a fully charged battery is an absolute must. The optimate is the only charger to fully recover flat lithium's and can be left permanently connected. Plenty of 240v power cable lead and charging lead is great negating the need for extensions leads for my application unlike oxford unit that has short 240v lead and doesn't recover flat batteries.
Perfect lithium charger
It's an OptMate, what more can you ask for? If you have a lithium battery on your bike this is perfect, it's literally just plug in and walk away. Top up charge or long term trickle charge, even recovering some dead battery situation.
Excellent well thought out product
Well thought out product. Differentating features very long cables which means bike can be good bitawayfrom socket. Excellent connector to bike sturdy not flimsy. Screw fixing to enable unid to be mounded off floor which will save damage. Sensible practical product with thought to be practical and long lasting
Tecmate Optimate Lithium
Bought this charger/maintainer from Sportsbike shop because I have bought some stuff from them before and had a very good experience with them. I needed to buy a lithium charger for my bike and this was the best priced one I could find. It came the day after I bought it online. Excellent service. Thanks.
I can highly recommend this product. My Shido lithium (lt10zs) battery was left drained completely due to my Datatool s4 alarm. This device worked a treat in reviving the battery completely. Saved me £100 already. Definitely can recommend.
