OptiMate is manufactured by TecMate for whom we are a UK Distributor. TecMate are a specialist international battery charger manufacturer who are recognised as leaders in their field.
OptiMate has now been recommended by virtually every major motorcycle manufacturer for very good reasons - they test and assess maintenance chargers to ensure they will not damage either your battery or your bike.
Because TecMate have specialised 100% in “smart” charger technology for over 2 decades, their products feature the latest technology and unsurpassed quality of both design and production. Their products are sold in over 50 countries and they supply some of the best known major vehicle manufacturers in the world. Track records don’t come much better than theirs. By contrast, many of the competitive products available in the UK are bought from unknown Chinese factories by companies whose speciality is shifting boxes, with little or no knowledge of battery charging technology.

Battery charging is assumed by many to be a simple and uncomplicated process. The reality could not be further from this. Not only have batteries evolved over the last 20 years into many differing technologies, the requirements put on them have increased massively. On top of the differing types of battery construction and size of battery, each and every battery has had a different history and is therefore unique. The range of battery types and conditions that chargers have to deal with is therefore vast. OptiMate and AccuMate chargers are designed to cope with a myriad of different possible battery conditions and assess, recover, charge, maintain and monitor the battery perfectly, over many months if necessary, and to do this entirely automatically with no user input required.
Optimate have been trading for 30 years and have highly skilled and trained staff who comprehensively understand battery charging technology and applications. We regularly advise world-leading companies about battery related issues. Whatever your requirement you can be confident that you are dealing with a well-established firm with the best possible technical ability and customer service skills.
