NEW OptiMate 5 Start-Stop Battery Optimizer

Increasing numbers of vehicles are using automatic stop-start systems, to help lower emissions and fuel consumption, but these can put enormous strain on the battery. The new OptiMate 5 START-STOP battery optimizer is designed to provide completely safe charging and maintenance for the 12V EFB and AGM batteries fitted to modern cars & vans.

Stop-start vehicles are equipped with the latest EFB (Enhanced Flooded Batteries), which are more powerful and durable than standard flooded / wet cell batteries. However, regular use – especially in heavy traffic and in busy urban situations – puts the battery under enormous pressure. A vehicle with stop-start can be expected to go through over 500,000 stop-start cycles over its lifetime, compared to the 50,000 cycles a traditional vehicle will perform.

OptiMate USB O108 On-Bike Charger

Four out of five UK adults now have a smartphone and with most devices offering music, turn-by-turn navigation as well as web connectivity, video recording, photos and communication, on-bike USB charging is fast becoming an essential.

Finding a charger that can stand up to the rigours of the riding environment, while delivering the correct amount of charge, and without draining the motorcycle’s battery, isn’t straightforward, with many cables and ports falling short.

New to the OptiMate range, the USB O-108 delivers 3.3A – powerful enough even for the latest smartphones with USB-C charge connectors, and has built-in microprocessor controlled battery protection to prevent the motorcycle’s battery from being discharged.

Charging is limited to a maximum of three hours, and the O-108 USB automatically cuts charging to the USB device if the vehicle’s battery voltage drops below 12.3V (approximately 50% charge remaining in an AGM battery).
