Oxford Oximiser 900
Customer Product Reviews
Het, it works!
It turned up exactly when Sportsbikeshop.com said it would = 5 stars. A very competitive price = 5 stars, Plugged in like wot it said on the instructions = 5 stars. Charged the battery in situ = 5 stars. The bike started up (24hrs charging) as promised = 5 stars. It's still keeping the bike ready & waiting (and waiting...) for the next ride = 5 stars. What's not to like - price, delivery, easy to fit and it works. I'm a Happy Bunny!
I was a bit hesitant in buying one of these trickle chargers as I was never sure how complicated they were to wire upto the bike, I bit the bullet as battery had gone flat due to the lack of use during these restrictions, I went online and watched a video before my product was delivered so at least I would have an idea of how it all worked. Recieved item on time as per usual service from sbs, opened package and within 40seconds had it wired to bike and charging. So simple and straightforward, well worth the money, charged the battery in no time and now I have the piece of mind that when lockdown is over I will not be left disappointed with a flat battery. Thanks SBS, again great service and great price.
Oxidiser 900 - invaluable item
5 stars well deserved- my bike's immobiliser drains their battery a little too quickly, but having the optimiser hard-wired to my bike gives real peace of mind that it's going to start. The length of the lead from optimiser to bike are inconveniently short, but this is such a minor gripe in my opinion, compared with the cost effective and user friendly nature of this bit of quality kit, that five stars are still merited.
Great idea but quality flaws
Unfortunately this charger broke on its second use due to flimsy crocodile clips, one of which disintegrated. It's a pity that a basically sound product is marred by poor quality components. What would a decent pair of clips have added to its cost? Returned for a refund.
Works but made of cheap plastic
It works so far (1 month in) and has the same functionality as other battery chargers, but I definitely wouldn't pay the £28.12 I paid for it. The plastic is cheap, there is no storage bag for the extra cables and the connectors are so poor, cheap and flimsy that I'm worried they'll fail shortly, certainly from day one the male and female connectors wouldn't line up and need to be wiggled to make a connection. Functionality is fine, quality of build is very poor. Would I recommend at the above price? Probably not as I'm already worried it's gonna fail and it'll be money wasted.
Brought the battery back to life
This battery charger was easy to install and has revived a battery which had a very low charge after a couple of weeks of non-use. The one thing I'd have preferred was a longer wire connecting the charger to the battery as it restricts where you can keep the bike. I've bought a longer cable separately.
Oxford Oximiser 900
Oxford Oximiser 900. After checking the options, Sportsbikeshop, was the cheapest and this was on offer, which was an added bonus. I got this model as it came with crocodile clips and a hardwired cable so I could put the hardwire cable on one bike and use the crocodile clips on my other bike and just swap the connector block between the two. I first topped up one battery which was fine as I had been using that bike and then fully charged my other battery which was so dead it wouldn't start the bike it was on due to it being stood for a month or two. After I charged the second battery over night, the bike started straight up with no issues. Great bit of kit! I just leave it on one bike for a couple of days and then connect it to the other bike for a few days to keep the batteries topped up. Would recommend this item.
5 stars for Sportbikeshop for getting this to me so quickly and at a fantastic price, the installation was quick and straight forward and as the pack comes with the option of just clipping on the crocodile clips or fitting the more permanent lead with a female connector I chose that, as some have said the lead from the plug is a little short but not something that can't be overcome, once plugged in the screen give you a read out of the condition of your battery and also what, if anything the optimiser is doing to improve it. I've had it permanently connected to my Superduke for the last weeks ( lockdown ) and all seems fine, it does not get warm and by looking at the screen it appears that it shuts off when not needed. Top bit of kit !
Good charger, good price
Bought this as my old charger bit the dust. Easy to use straight out of the packet, had my steed up and running after a night charging the battery. I'll use it to manage over the winter too owing to the two types of connectors in the kit. I find the crocodile clips a little flimsy and the cables shorter than expected but these I stress are extremely minor points. Sportsbike Shop got this to me within 5 days at the very beginning of the current restricted movement, paid for first class, no big deal, good on them for staying open and providing decent service. I'll be back for more, have bought plenty from them in the past. Cheers.
