4-channel OptiMate 3 - the unique affordable 6-step battery optimiser. Easy to use with the original OptiMate functions and intuitive LED display.
4 x 0.8 Amp charge rate
Since its launch in 1995, OptiMate has received wide acclaim as an outstanding compact automatic charger, maintainer and recoverer for 12V starter batteries of motorcycles, ride-on mowers and similar seasonal vehicles, as well as for sealed lead-acid gel and deep-cycle batteries used in back-up power support applications. The OptiMate 3 x 4 uses the proven OptiMate interactive charging programme in an affordable 4-channel package to charge and maintain up to four 12V lead-acid batteries completely independently.
OptiMate 3 is totally automatic and fully protected against user errors. There are no switches. Short-circuiting the charger output resets the programme, without sparks or blown fuses. Affordable, compact, intelligent and forgiving of errors, OptiMate 3 is the perfect tool for regular or long-term maintenance of batteries not in daily use.
How it works
The voltage retention check (step 5) is repeated every 30 minutes and alternates thereafter with step 6 for as long as OptiMate 3 remains connected to the battery.
