The OptiMate PRO-S from TecMate is an affordable ($129.90 retail) all-in-one battery care center for shops. It provides diagnostics, charging, testing and initialization charging for brand-new MF batteries within one hour. Users select “New” for new batteries and choose between 2-amp and 4-amp for used ones (dependent on size). The device then selects the right charge current to suit the battery condition and continually adjusts. An enhanced multi-stage version of the OptiMate desulfication action automatically recovers most badly neglected batteries. Irrecoverable batteries with mechanically damaged cells are identified and signaled after 10 minutes of connection.
