AccuMate 6/12V Charger/Optimiser - Description
The AccuMate is the sister product to the well established OptiMate battery charger/optimiser, which has a proven reputation with over 30,000 OptiMates sold annually in the UK alone. Like the OptiMate, the AccuMate is designed to automatically charge and monitor batteries with no danger of over-charging regardless of time. The AccuMate is suitable for all 6 and 12V lead acid batteries from 4Ah to 75Ah, making it perfect for owners of older vehicles which are not used on a daily basis.
Operation of the AccuMate is completely automatic. It uses a 1.2A constant current charge as the main stage, while monitoring the battery voltage. When this reaches a pre-set cut off point, it then switches to an intermediate constant voltage 'float charge'. Only when the AccuMate has detected that the battery is properly charged, will it switch to the final stage for correct long-term battery maintenance, and indicate a green LED. If at any time the AccuMate detects that the battery has discharged, it will automatically revert to the constant current stage.
Lead Lengths From mains plug to unit = 2m From unit to connectors = 2.4m Power usage on maintainance charge: <0.3 kwh/week
