TecMate OptiMate Lithium 0.8A Battery Optimiser (SAE)
Customer Product Reviews
Excellent product, excellent service
I bought this charger to use on the Aliant YLP 07 battery for which I have submitted a separate review, my usage requirements being somewhat different from the norm. I will use this to power the Keiss heated jacket as a pedestrian option. The Optimate is straightforward to use, and is safe to leave switched on as it goes through its test cycle every thirty minutes if not charging. I dealt with Sophie at SBS, and had the usual excellent service as always, both battery and charger arriving the next day. The Optimate range of chargers and accessories are an excellent product, - purchase with confidence.
Piece of cake charger
Bought this to initially charge and maintain a new lithium battery, just does everything automatically, just checked the lights against the manual to get an understanding of what's what and waited for a full charge. Piece of cake to use.
Absolutely brilliant product, extremely easy to use as always from TecMate. I bought this to go with my new lithium battery, left it charging over night and it was ready to go the next morning. Also worth noting this product is fully waterproof so can be used all year round and in all weather if your not a fair weather rider. ;)
Good charger at a good price
Having just bought a lithium battery for my bike, realised I needed a lithium battery charger (acid charger no good) so wanted a good quality charger. Optimate fitted the bill at the right price. Arrived a day early so very pleased with service.
Brilliant customer service, kept me fully informed about the delay in stocking this item, arrived well packaged. Unit works very well, set of connectors for installing direct onto the battery plus a set of clamps for bench charging, instructions were well laid out and clear.
Does what it should do
Only rated as good because it only been used over the past couple of months over winter. So unable to comment on longevity. The bike hasn't been out so cannot really judge how it works during regular use. However, the battery so far has been 'conditioned' successfully. Initial impressions are that it's up to the usual Optimate standards (I've had a few and never had an issue).
Item well made, seems to do what it's meant to and here's the but, instructions could be clearer in respect of if you don't want to leave it connected all the time there should be a indicator to show it's totally finished charging and not going through some discharge charging testing etc cycle.
Works a dream
Good price, easy ordering and the Techmate does exactly as is advertised to do. I have a lithium battery on my track bike, which has not been charged and has had little use for 22 months. I connected it up and within a day it was back up to top status. Need I say more! Thanks to very quick delivery from Sportsbikeshop. I have always had good service from them, thanks SBS.
