Ideal for 12V lead-acid & 12.8V / 13.2V lithium LFP (LiFePO4) found in the vehicles / craft above.
Quad program – select program 1 or 3 to charge battery direct or through a live (hot) 12V socket*, or program 2 or 4 to charge through BMW CAN-bus controlled 12V socket*.
* requires optional cable accessory to connect to socket.
Fully automatic multi-step program brings the battery safely to full charge – Select by battery type & charge requirement and OptiMate 4 Quad Program does the rest, no supervision required!
OptiMate 4 Quad Program includes four charging programs; the standard program for lead-acid batteries is supposed to be used when connecting directly to the battery, the CANbus (BMW) program for lead-acid batteries allows charging and maintaining via the DIN socket on BMW Motorcycles (models 2004 and later).
The standard program for lithium batteries is supposed to be used when connecting directly to the battery, the CANbus (BMW) program for lithium batteries allows charging and maintaining via the DIN socket on BMW Motorcycles (models 2004 and later).
Yes, the standard program has the most advanced recovery program which saves 'dead flat' sulphated batteries from as low as 0,5V.
You'll need to select Program 2 (Pb-CAN-bus) or Program 4 (LFP-CAN-bus) depending on the type of battery in your BMW motorcycle. Program 2 is for a 12V sealed lead-acid battery - your sealed battery may be marked 12V VRLA, GEL or AGM. Program 4 is for a 12.8V LFP (Li-Ion with chemistry LiFePO4) battery.
Disconnect the OptiMate 4 from the battery or vehicle. Push and release the pushbutton switch. The mode selection changes when the button is released. Continue to press and release until the desired program has been selected. If no futher selection is made for at least 3 seconds SAVE (#3), CHARGE (#4), OPTIMIZE(#5) and TEST (#6,7, 8) LEDs flash twice to confirm selection is in memory.
The standard edition is delivered with a set of battery clips (O-04), a permanent battery lead (O-01) and a handlebar hanging hook to suspend the charger from the handlebar. The Premium edition includes all the same accessories PLUS a SAE to DIN adapter (O-19) to connect directly to 12V DIN sockets on BMW and Triumph motorcycles.
Yes, IF the socket is ‘live’ (hot) when the motorcycle ignition is turned off. (TIP: Recent model Triumph Tiger 850/900 and 1200/1250 have a live socket near the instrument panel.). Select program 1 or 3 for direct-to-battery charging as the socket is directly connected to the battery.
STD, AGM and GEL 12V lead-acid & 12.8V / 13.2V lithium LFP (LiFePO4) batteries used for engine start & deep cycle applications. For lead-acid batteries from 4Ah to 60Ah for 24-7 battery maintenance and for lithium batteries from 2Ah to 15Ah for 24-7 battery maintenance.
Charge time on a flat but otherwise undamaged battery: a 12Ah battery should take no more than about 12 hours to progress to the self-discharge check. Deep-discharged batteries may take significantly longer, a full charge may not be achieved within the hour charge safety limit. In this case.
