TecMate OptiMate 4 Dual Program Battery Charger
High quality product without the high price!
Instructions are a bit confusing, however the charger works excellent and is less than half the price of the BMW charger. And as always excellent service form revzilla.

Seems to work well. Cheaper than BMW's version.
Documentation confusion. Not sure what all the indicator lights mean.

Had just used it once. A bit confused with the instructions but all is well.

Easy to use
I thought the unit would require much input from the user as it has a lot of features. Once the unit is connected to the battery, it is just plug and play. It does all the work and decides how best to charge your battery. I've had it plugged in continuously to my bike, and the unit does not over heat.

Great battery charger/maintainer!
I like this charger a lot! It's simple, plug it in and there ya go. I was looking for a charger to maintain my battery threw winter months with a quick connect cord for ease of maintenance from here on. After reviewing all chargers out there I kept coming back to this one. Most major Moto manufacturers recommend this charger (Yamaha, which I ride) and a couple even have there names on this charger, that tells me something! It really is easy to understand - It test, red bad, yellow not so bad, green good, it charges as needed then test again. Simple! After initial test and charge, it test every hr and keeps a full charge on battery without a constant trickle charge, I like that to. Installation is easy of quick connect cord (a must) and everything is great quality. So far it has worked perfect for me and now with the quick connect cord hooked up I don't have to raise the tank on my FZ6 to get to my battery for testing and charging. I like it! Thanks Revzilla!

Great features, easy to use, high-quality
The Techmant Optimate4 with the BMWCANbus has features showing your battery's status (ie. good or deficient battery) and easy to see and understand lights showing periodic maintenance charges to keep the battery in top condition. I like this unit much better than the battery tender it replaced. I was happy with that until I saw this. MIght get another one for my other bike, a Harley. Still have it on a battery tender.

Technology beyond me
Does the job and yes, it works with CANBus (used on 2012 R1200GS). I have no idea what it does though. Various LEDs blink at various intervals, lights go on and off but eventually after an hour or so everything settles and you get a steady green light and a charged battery.
