Oxford Oximiser 900
Customer Product Reviews
Great value and easy to install.
The Oxford Optimiser 900 arrived on time as quoted. The instructions are clear and easy to follow. The unit was installed within an hour of arrival and has proved to be a valued piece kit ensuring the bikes battery remains at optimal level at all times. A must for every biker.
OK but not the full solution!
Lightweight hopefully robust, and functions as expected. What let's this product down as others have said is the length of the cables supplied. The power cable is 1 metre long and the cable with the weather proof socket is a metre long, considerably shorter then after you've wired your bike up. Unless you can get your bike really close to a power socket you will need to use an extension. I bought a UK 3 pin to IEC C7 5m long for less than £5 off eBay. I also purchased a genuine oxford adapter lead OF704 for £12.95 off eBay for my second bike.interestingly this is 2m long, so tt begs the question as to why Oxford didn't supply the charging unit with a longer tail. The waterproof socket cover on the bike end is made from very inflexible plastic and will fail for sure. The cable mate n lock linking sockets feel flimsy, but are relatively easy to replace as long as you have a crimping set. Oxford seem to be the bespoke charger so I hope this item lives up to its reputation. Finally reduced my 4 stars to 3 because you can't register for guarantee online, post only, and I'm still waiting for the acknowledgement. Do look at other options.
This charger has proven to be so easy to use and feel confident the battery is not only being charged but maintained as well. The connectors are a bit flimsy but do the job for me as I only have one bike, maybe tougher connectors for someone who has a few bikes to look after.
The Oxfrd Optimiser is a great device that is so easy to use. You can either use the supplied crocodile clips to attach to the battery or screw the connectors on for a permanent fix which is what I've done . It does everything itself like when its fully charged goes into maintaining mode . Great value .
I bought this as my bike battery was dead from leaving it for a couple of months. Quick and easy to use (I've also used the wall mount which is a life saver). The bike is now up and running after a decent charge. Would recommend to anyone. The only room for improvement is the cables could be a little longer.
Simple to use, solid feeling unit, but...
This was a doddle to set up and use. The unit itself feels robust as well which is hard to come by with kit like this. There are jump leads and a more long term option of wiring which you can attach to the battery. It also comes with a wall mount - I presume the idea being that you mount this near where you park the bike in your garage. However, the leads are so short that wall mounting isn't an option unless you have a very convenient wall socket. It's a bit of a shame really as it's such a simple problem to fix.
