A good motorcycle battery charger and battery tender is a must have for any motorcycle owner. And as most riders needing to store their motorcycle over the winter, a battery tender is the solution to maintaining your battery life. Furthermore, today with modern motorcycles housing smart computer systems and high-tech alarm systems, there’s a greater drain on your battery. The Optimate 4 battery charger and product line of chargers truly make motorcycle and scooter battery management effortless.
The Optimate 4 is a truly unique multi-functional diagnostic battery optimiser for 12V lead-acid batteries (sealed/maintenance-free, gel, or filler caps) and really the only battery tender you’ll need. It features a 9-step 12V 0.8A motorcycle battery saving charger – tester and maintainer.
The Optimate products by TecMate are the “best of the best” when it comes to motorcycle battery chargers/battery tenders. This latest version Optimate 4 can also save neglected motorcycle batteries. It’s armed with an even more effective dual-stage “Recovery & Turbo Recovery” desulfating action. For neglected deep-discharged batteries the RECOVERY mode engages automatically, while the TURBO RECOVERY mode engages for more severely neglected batteries.
Optimate 4 Battery Charger For Effortless Motorcycle Battery Maintenance
Just as in other Optimate products, the Optimate 4 charges the battery, verifies that the battery is as fully charged as its basic state of health allows, then checks for & detects dead battery cells. This occurs through a six step process:
Optimate 4 Battery Charger Features:
- Maximum output current increased to 0,8A without increasing energy consumption
- 48 hour time limit on stages up to the first of the cyclic tests for battery drain to avoid wasting time and energy on batteries with a shorted-out cell
- 19 possible LED indications displayed on 10 LEDs on the stunning new control panel
- 5 possible results of the cyclic hourly tests for power drain /retention are displayed on a combination of green, yellow and red TEST LEDs
- IP64 weatherproof sealed enclosure with built-in mounting option (replaceable if damaged such as by over-tightening a fixing screw)
- New cable bushings avoid insulation stress in ultra-cold temperatures
- New SAE weatherproof connections.
One of the handiest attributes of the Optimate 4 as with all OptiMATE’s, is that this charger will manage the safe, optimal maintenance of your battery during long-term storage. It’s achieved by its gentle maintenance cycle which automatically allows the battery to rest for 30 minutes of each hour of the maintenance cycle, while it remains connected. You have no worries all winter long!
The product meets all relevant UL & CSA standards, includes a comprehensive choice of SAE connection accessories including an output extension set and a 2 year limited warranty.
