All set to go right out of the box
I bought two of these for putting our BMW's to bed for the winter. Much less than the BMW brand and plugs directly into the accessory socket (CANbus). Easy ordering, fast shipping.

Must have for BMW bikes with CANbus.
Very easy and intuitive to use. Plug and play. My BMW owners manual suggests putting your battery on a charger if the bike sits for two weeks or longer. Also, I love Revzilla's customer service and product follow up.
Perfect compatibility with my 2015 RnineT.

Excellent for BMW motorcycles with CAN-bus system.
The engineer I spoke with at TecMate said some Optimate 4 chargers manufactured with a certain date stamp may or may not operate correctly with the BMW CAN-bus system, but mine with that date worked perfectly. If it had not, TecMate would pay shipping both ways. Doesn't get any better than this. Cheers, TecMate!

Excellent Battery Tool
The Optimate 4 is all it should be and works as designed on my new 2013 BMW R1200GSW canbus system.

Awesome alternative for more expensive BMW Can-Bus compatible charger
The product works as advertised. Just take it out of the package, connect it to a power outlet and plug into your accessory socket in your BMW and it will diagnose, salvage (if neglected), charge and maintain your battery without your intervention. The instructions are very descriptive; if still confused, with a little of attention on what the device does plus reading the manual, you'll figure it out. Very happy with this charger and very glad to have saved at least 50% of the cost if compared with the recommended BMW one, with no compromise.

Works great and is a much less expensive than the BMW Canbus charger
I looked around quite a bit to see if the BMW Canbus charger could be purchased inexpensively and it wasn't available. After I read the reviews here I decided to go for this charger which was $50-$80 less and I'm glad I did. the OptiMate 4 Canbus charger worked great on my 2009 BMW F800ST. I knew my battery was low because our weather has been horrible and I've barely been able to ride and get my bike charged up. 2 days after the purchase of this charger I plugged this in to my bike as the battery was dead. The charger came set to the BMW Canbus mode so other than finding a wall socket it took care of the rest. I switched modes and charged my riding lawn mower too. There are a number of lights on the charger so you really need to see the instructions the first time but once you've seen them you should be all set. I'd buy another in a heartbeat. I've only had it a short while and I certainly got my money's worth.

Keep in mind that if you have anything tied into the Canbus power when this charger starts you may turn on that device. I had a GPS device tied into the Canbus and it turned on due to the charger. I ended up directly wiring the device to the taillight to avoid the Canbus issue.

Best charger I've ever had.
Brought my BMW battery back from the dead. I tried with another charger several times, but this one did the trick. I ride, plug it in, and let it stay on. A little pricey, but worth it since a new battery was twice as much. Switching from CANBUS to normal is super easy. Highly recommend.

High Quality, Works, Instructions a Bit Confusing
Good value in a charger for a CAN bus bike. Nice to be able to charge through the auxiliary without disconnecting the battery. The instructions and indicators are a bit confusing when you first look at them. The manual needs to be rewritten. Actual use is straight forward. CAN bus models apparently will always come set for the CAN bus option. Plug it in, it will diagnose and charge, then go to alternating test/charge sequence.

Excellent charger
This charger exceeded my expectations for ease of use and for effectiveness. Have used it for 2 seasons and it has been excellent. I loved it so much I bought one for my fiancé's bike. Highly recommended.

Works great at a great price
I'm completely happy with this charger. It works perfectly plugged into the powerlet jack on my R1200RT and costs way less than the BMW charger.
