USB CHARGER TECHNOLOGY
Modern USB devices require stable power to recharge fast. Modern smartphones (iPhone, Android, etc.) now have batteries of around 3Ah (3000mAh). A lithium motorcycle battery capacity range between 2Ah to 5Ah with Lead-acid (AGM / STD) batteries 2-3x more than that. Even though it has more capacity, if discharged below 50% the vehicle may struggle to start.
OptiMate USB chargers incorporate unique power control that will protect the vehicle’s battery, ensuring there is always sufficient power to start the engine.
OptiMate USB’s charge with a high level of current available to either share between two USB ports fast or charge one USB device faster. Current automatically adapts to each connected device for safe recharging.
OptiMate USB chargers include built-in battery protection that turn off USB charging if your vehicle has been parked, to prevent your vehicle’s LFP (LiFePO4) or AGM (Pb)battery from draining. If the battery drops below 12.4V it will immediately turn off to save the battery.
OptiMate’s O-100 and O-108 USB chargers include a built-in battery monitor to allow you to check your vehicle’s battery status at-a-glance. Once USB charging has turn off the onboard LED will blink every 5 seconds to indicate your LFP (LiFePO4) or AGM (Pb) is ready to start the vehicle.
OptiMate USB chargers come standard with a weatherproof seal against your insert USB cable or ‘rideproof’ cap seals all USB ports when not in use to protect against inclement weather while riding. Creating worry free charging in any weather!

FAQ USB Charger products
Yes, all OptiMate USB chargers are SAFE for charging 12V lead-acid and 12.8V / 13.2V Lithium (LifePO4 / LFP) batteries.
The most common reason for this might be because your battery voltage has dropped below 12.4V and the USB charger has gone into battery protection mode to save your battery from further draining. Check your battery’s voltage.
The single difference between the O-108 and O-108KIT would be the O-31 SAE battery lead which connects the battery to the O-108 USB Charger. If you already have an SAE battery lead fitted, then the O-108 is recommended.
