OPtimate 5 with 2.8Amps Waterproof Battery Charger & Maintainer by Tecmate
The OptiMate 5 with 2.8Amps is the ideal all in one tool to care for medium to large 12V batteries. It is housed in a weatherproof sealed enclosure that includes wallmounts. The OptiMate 5 will diagnose, recover, charge, test and maintain your batteries automatically. It is recommended for STD (with removable filler caps), sealed AGM (absorbed glass mat) & sealed GEL 12V lead-acid batteries from 8Ah to 120Ah, although it can also maintain larger batteries (it will just take longer to charge).
A key question when there are so many chargers out there on the market... Why does Adventure Designs choose OptiMate, and specifically the OptiMate 5? Here is why we like it... Forgot to switch off the ignition / lights or did not hook up the battery to a maintainer during off-season and now the battery is ‘dead’? There is no need to rush out and buy a new battery as OptiMate 5 has been proven to save neglected, deep discharged batteries other smart chargers can’t. This is HUGE!
Used in a conventional manner, most batteries only last 2-3 years, but this does not have to be the case! The OptiMate 5 has been proven to extend battery life as much as 400% and in our tests we have seen batteries lasting up to 8 years if maintained with OptiMate 5.
How do you get your batteries to last 8 years? Always hook up the OptiMate 5 to the battery when the vehicle is parked and it will safely maintain the battery at 100%, never overcharging, thanks to its unique 30 min charge, 30 min rest cycle during every hour of long term maintenance charge.
The OptiMate 5 includes 2 connection accessories : (see pictures to the right
- SAE-71 permanent ringlet connector with weatherproof cap
- SAE-74 set of battery clips
Not only is this system fully automatic, it also includes all safety features such as reverse polarity protection for a no spark connection which is approved to UL & CSA safety standards for automatic battery chargers.
All of this and a 3 year limited warranty!
