OptiMate 6 Battery Charger, Tester and Maintainer

New 5 Amp high current version of the multiple award-winning automatic battery optimiser. Ideal for all lead/acid batteries from 15Ah to 240Ah.

New technology for 12V automotive and marine battery care

Now you can buy an OptiMate battery charger for your car, boat or motorhome. The 5 Amp circuit is ideal for any 12V lead/acid battery from 15Ah to 240Ah which needs to be maintained ready for instant service. Perfect for AGM, gel and high performance batteries (e.g Optima and Odyssey).

OptiMate 6 battery charger is the latest in OptiMate technology. Featuring TecMate’s latest AmpMatic microprocessor controlled circuitry, OptiMate 6 battery charger is genuinely revolutionary - the world most advanced and versatile battery charger, maintainer and tester. All in a stylish, robust, weatherproof, wall-mountable enclosure

As soon as it is connected, the ampmatic microprocessor automatically diagnoses your battery and condition and sets the optimal charge current and program. This enhanced version of the acclaimed OptiMate multi-stage desulphation program will even automatically give many deep-discharged and otherwise dead ; batteries a new lease of life. When the charge is complete the eco power-saving mode ensures ultra low power consumption while keeping your battery optimally charged, cool and safe, month after month, prolonging its life by up to 400%!

How it works

1.       Initialisation: OptiMate 6 battery chager checks that it is connected to a battery (minimum voltage 1.8V).

2.       Programming: the ampmatic processor checks the battery’s condition to determine the appropriate program entry point.

3.       Desulphation and recovery: if necessary, 2 or 3 stages of high voltage and oscillatory pulsing are applied to recover neglected flat batteries (removed from the vehicle) from sulphation to a chargeable state.

4.       Bulk charge:  the ampmatic processor sets and then continually re-adjusts the constant current optimally for each individual battery according to its evolving electrical characteristics.

5.       Short-circuited cell check: after 10 minutes the ampmatic processor assesses the electrical parameters to check for power leakage due to a short-circuited cell.

6.       Absorption and equalisation: during 10 minutes the current is delivered in pulses to cause the voltage to oscillate between 13.7 and 14.3V, aiding cell voltage equalization.

7.       Charge verification: during 5 minutes the voltage is limited at 13,6V while the ampmatic processor monitors the current absorbed by the battery. If this reveals a less than optimal charge, the program reverts to absorption for a further 10 minutes.

8.       Charge retention test: when the optimal charge has been achieved, the fi rst check for battery (and connected system) power leakage commences. If the battery passes the fi rst 30 minutes test, the test is extended up to 12 hours for a definitive result. If the voltage falls below 12,4V in this period the extended test is terminated. Results of the tests can be read at a glance on the easy-to-read LED panel. 30-minute tests are repeated hourly until the OptiMate 6 is disconnected, so that the battery status indication is continually updated.

9.       Charge maintenance: during alternate 30 minute periods, at a fl oat limit of 13,6V the battery is offered whatever charge current it needs to sustain it against any small connected loads or power leakage and against natural self discharge.  OptiMate 6 battery charger can stay connected to the battery indefinitely, the battery will stay cool and safe. And optimally charged. Of course.
