Co-branded by Drag Specialties, Moose, Honda and Triumph, the OptiMate 3 is described as TecMate's most trusted charger in powersport.
"This charger has saved many thousands, if not millions, of batteries over the years with its unique save mode that brings a sulphated battery back from as low as 2 volts and its unique 24-7 long-term maintenance program that keeps that saved battery ready to fire up the engine of the powersport vehicle it is in."
This same charger is available as a dual bank (OptiMate 3 x 2) and four-bank (OptiMate 3 x 4), ideal for dealers and workshops, and a fact that American Honda has recognized by approving the OptiMate 3 x 4 for new battery preparation.
Ideal for 12V AGM, GEL and STD lead-acid batteries, the seven-step program on the 3 x 4 can save dead flat 12V batteries from as low as 2 volts or automatically bring a new battery to full charge "within hours."

For high performance 12.8V/13.2V 4-series Lithium Ferrous Phosphate (LFP/LiFe) batteries, the OptiMate Lithium 4s 0.8A x 4, derived from the highly regarded OptiMate Lithium 4s 0.8A, is globally recommended by Yamaha and Kawasaki. "Each station's nine-step program can save a flat battery from as low as 0.5 volts or automatically bring a new battery to full charge - including batteries with a built-in sleep mode that needs waking before receiving charge.
"Preparing or servicing batteries could not be easier with any of the OptiMate four-bank fully automatic battery chargers," says TecMate CEO Martin Human. "The integrated wall mounts allow for perfect positioning above the battery service area. The rest is easy.
"Simply connect the batteries and each charge bank's smart program does the rest automatically, from activating a new battery for service or saving a flat battery a customer may have returned.

"Keeping new batteries fresh and ready for sale is a snap. The OptiMate 24-7 maintenance program guarantees that each new battery leaves the dealership fully charged and healthy. With OptiMate four-station chargers, it is truly as simple as connect and forget, no more battery problems.
"OptiMate also keeps cost in check for the dealer. A lesser known fact is that all OptiMate battery chargers, including the four-bank models, can accept universal/global power rated between 100Vac to 240Vac. This universal input power conversion system is more efficient and reduces power usage, i.e. OptiMate uses less power than most to charge batteries right.
"Lower cost to charge batteries, almost no batteries coming back, and those dead flat batteries that do are usually due to customer error, and even those can be fixed by OptiMate - now that's a win-win-win formula for any dealer if there ever was one," says Martin.
