OptiMate USB O-108 on-bike charger 

Finding a USB 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. 

However, new to the OptiMate range of motorcycle purpose built products, their USB O-108 on-bike charger delivers a powerful 3.3A - enough even for the latest smartphones with USB-C charge connectors. Built-in microprocessor controlled battery protection prevents the motorcycle's battery from being accidentally discharged after parking, and once parked, charging is limited to a maximum of three hours before it shuts off automatically. It restarts when the engine has restarted and the vehicle charge voltage is back to normal. 

As a failsafe, even during riding, 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).
An easy-to-read LED display enables the user to see at a glance if it is delivering full or restricted (3 hours max) power or has shut down due to the battery voltage being too low.
All OptiMate USB chargers are 100% true power rated and deliver a continuous and consistent charge. They also come with a built-in Apple 'handshake', to guarantee iPhones and iPads charge at the appropriate maximum.
Weatherproofing comes as standard, to prevent moisture causing problems and guarding against any damp issues with the bike's electrical system.
