GOLD series: 8-step 12V 6A / 24V 3A sealed battery saving charger & maintainer
OptiMate 6 12/24V, the versatile battery charger for 12V or 24V lead-acid batteries – best for deep cycle batteries!
Ideal for 12V and 24V deep cycle and starter (SLI) lead-acid batteries found in the vehicles / craft and equipment above.
Select the right charge voltage for any type of 12V and 24V lead-acid battery, from standard flooded, AGM, GEL to Ca-Ca (lead-Calcium) deep cycle – Selection remains in memory even if AC power is lost.
Fully automatic multi-step program brings the battery safely to full charge – Connect to the battery and OptiMate 6 12V-24V does the rest, no supervision required!
All OptiMate battery chargers listed below accept global input of 100-240Vac 50-60Hz, only the power plug TYPE is different to comply with national / regional electrical safety laws.
Disconnect the charger from the battery
Place and hold finger on Select-TOUCH sensor. The selected voltage LED brightens to confirm touch.
After 3 seconds the voltage selection changes, then SAVE (#3), CHARGE (#4) and TEST (#6,7, 8) LEDs flash twice to confirm selection is in memory.
The selection remains even if AC power is lost.
Disconnect the charger from the battery first, before making the selection with the touch button.
OptiMate 6 is the best charger for starter and deep cycle batteries.
STD, AGM and GEL 12V lead-acid batteries used for engine start & deep cycle applications. (Link: Learn here about batteries, this will be at www.optimate1.com/batteries).
For 12V batteries : Overnight charge (12h) : max battery capacity 50Ah. Max recommended size (24h) : 100 Ah. For 24V batteries : Overnight charge (12h) : max battery capacity 30Ah. Max recommended size (24h) : 60 Ah
The time required for the OptiMate 6 to complete the charge of a 12v-50Ah battery should take no more than about 10 hours. Deep-discharged batteries may take significantly longer.
The time required for the OptiMate 6 to complete the charge of a 24v-25Ah battery should take no more than about 10 hours. Deep-discharged batteries may take significantly longer.
