Optimate is ''the' well-established line of automotive, motorcycle  & power sport battery chargers & test gear from their parent company TechMate  The Optimate battery-saving charging method was first developed in 1995, with the purpose of saving AGM, GEL and STD lead-acid batteries that have stopped working simply due to neglect. Their range today extends to lithium batteries with Techmate offering a range of specialised consumer & professional units.

The Optimate 4 can be used at the entry-level as an all-rounder for maintaining a new bike or battery over its life cycle.  Suitable got  Scooters, ATV, Lawn Tractors, Jet Skis & large or small motorcycles.  But is also specifically designed for motorcycles with CAN Bus electrical systems.  Changeover between standard & CAN-Bus modes takes only a few seconds.  

NB: M.A.P recommends the 4DP as it is the most versatile unit, however, if you have a new battery in your bike and just wish to maintain it, then Optimate2 may be a better choice.  OR, if you want a unit that puts our more current (up to 5A) eg. also for workshop use, consider Optimate6

Note to connect via the EURO Power outlet socket on a BMW or others, you need to purchase the SAE-DIN O9 Lead Option (see recommended below)
