OptiMate 4

OptiMate 4 Dual Program is the latest version of the multiple award-winning OptiMate 4 - the unique multistage battery optimiser specially designed for modern 12V starter batteries from 2.5 to 50 Amp-hours. With OptiMate 4 Dual Program you can now either charge the battery direct, or select the program to charge via the 12V port on CAN-bus equipped BMW motorcycles (using an optional DIN plug lead).

How it works

1.    Switch between STANDARD or BMW CAN-BUS program with a simple procedure: connect clamps together, connect to mains, wait for the LED’s to confirm program change, disconnect clamps. LED indication confirms the BMW CAN-BUS program is active. Once selected, the chosen program is saved as the default mode for next use, but you can switch programs as many times as you want. 
2.       Safety check: OptiMate 4 DUAL PROGRAM will proceed to charge if the battery voltage can maintain above 2V during the initial start up diagnosis, even if the battery was at 0.5V before connection.
3.       Functionality: OptiMate 4 DUAL PROGRAM microprocessor checks the system for correct operation (LEDs flash briefly to confirm). 
4.       Pre-qualification test: OptiMate 4 DUAL PROGRAM indicates the battery condition prior to charging.
5.       Desulphation and recovery: STANDARD (up to 16V) engages automatically to recover neglected, flat batteries from a sulphated to a chargeable state. For badly neglected batteries the TURBO stage (max 22V) engages if vehicle electronics are not detected or the battery is out of the vehicle. The turbo stage is disabled in CAN-bus mode. The safe low voltage PULSE recovery engages for the final 15 minutes. 
6.       Bulk charge: a constant current of 1A is delivered until the voltage reaches 14.3V. 
7.       Absorption and equalisation: Current is delivered in pulses to bring the battery to full charge in the shortest possible time. 
8.       Charge verification and short circuit / dead cell check: Charge acceptance is monitored, to detect internal damage and prevent unnecessary charging of an unrecoverable battery that cannot be recovered. An undamaged battery requiring further charging will revert to pulsed absorption. 
9.       Voltage retention test: is conducted for 30 minutes during which no charge current is delivered, with 5 possible test results indicating the battery's general state of health. The pre-qualification test can be used to detect batteries that may hold a charge initially, but lose charge overnight. 
10.    Charge maintenance: a voltage of 13.6V is delivered for 30 minutes following each voltage retention test, with sufficient current to sustain it against natural self-discharge or drain from permanently active vehicle components or connected accessories (alarm, immobiliser). The voltage retention test and charge maintenance periods continue alternating half-hourly until the battery is disconnected. The test result is updated during each subsequent test. 
11.    CAN-bus program: the KEYLESS activation program guarantees automatic re-opening of the connection even with the ignition turned off. 12.    The alternating test and charge maintenance program is designed to provide the recommend maintenance voltage for AGM / GEL batteries whilst reducing the average voltage as required by STD filler cap batteries, making it ideal for indefinite and 100% safe long term maintenance charging of any type of 12V lead-acid battery.

The REAL & unique 6-step battery optimiser specially designed for all modern 12V starter batteries from 2.5 to 50 Amp-hours capacity.

Diagnoses, recovers, charges, checks & maintains your battery automatically for months.  All major battery manufacturers recommend maintaining starter batteries FULLY CHARGED during periods of non-use. OptiMate 4 is totally safe for months-long connection and maintenance of irregularly or seasonally used batteries even while still connected to the vehicle. The sophisticated charging algorithm ensures no risk of over-charging.

Suitable for all types of rechargeable 12V lead-acid batteries: filler cap types; absorbed glass mat (AGM or "MF"); valve regulated (VRLA); GEL-electrolyte.  As simple as 1-2-3: Just connect OptiMate 4 to your battery, the rest is automatic.  Electronically protected against user errors.  There is no switch, no fuse and there are no sparks.

Delivered with two interchangeable connection sets, one with clamps for bench charging, the other with in-line protection fuse and eyelet terminals for permanent connection to the vehicle’s battery to allow easy reconnection of charger when necessary.

Payments & Returns

So, how do I pay for my order?

  • You can pay by Visa, Mastercard, Laser, American Express and almost all other popular cards. Our online payments are handled by Realex, one of the worlds most secure payment providers. Your card details are secure throughout the whole transaction.
  • You can pay by PayPal at checkout also.
  • We also accept cheque and postal order. If you decide to go with this payment please make it payable to 'Allmoto'. On of the snags using this payment is we must wait until it clears with our bank and this might delay your order a few days. We'll keep you updates if there is any delay.

So what's the Allmoto returns policy?

Technically, if you have ordered a wrong part, we are entitled to ask you to return it to the Allmoto offices as new, and, we charge you a re-stocking charge….plus the outgoing shipping charge we incurred when we sent you the delivery.

However, in most cases, we try to be sensible about it. If it's an item that we are likely to resell at some point we'll normally just ask you to cover return shipping costs and we'll stock it - however this is at our discretion for parts that we feel that we have some chance of ever selling again.


But I ordered the wrong size/colour/whatever, what do I do?

We must be contacted within 7 days of you receiving your goods. Should you need to return any item please return it with the original packaging and send it recorded delivery. Enclose a returns note stating your name, address and telephone number, give details of the reason for return and what action you wish us to take. 

In the case of faulty goods please contact us on ++353 (0)1 8250703 and we will then decide the best course of action. Any goods returned outside of these conditions will be charged a 15% restocking charge. 

Allmoto are not responsible for any labour charges incurred during fitment or removal of suspected faulty or incorrectly supplied parts. (This does not affect your statutory rights.) 

With special orders or where goods have been made to a customers specification we must reserve the right to refuse cancellation and refunds and the deduction of a handling charge will be made at our discretion.  

Your rights to return goods are protected under the EU Distance Selling Directive which can be found at http://www.hmso.gov.uk/si/si2000/20002334.htm

To explain why we would need a restocking charge on non-stock parts: we (Allmoto) have incurred an incoming shipping charge, a shipping charge to get it to you AND another shipping charge to get it back to the suppliers….after this the supplier will hit us with a restocking charge!


 

What if I asked for the correct part and you(Allmoto) sent me the wrong one?

Well that's completely different and if this has happened we apologize. We try our best to get the parts right 100% of the time. If we have supplied an incorrect part we fully refund any money including the return postage (and we normally give you some extra discount if we've messed up to keep you a happy customer:) .  


 

Who do I contact if I have an issue with my returns?

Contact Derek be emailing him directly - derek@allmoto-online.com. You'll also find our main contact details HERE.
