– 6-step 12V / 12.8V 0.83A sealed solar battery saving charger & maintainer
– OptiMate Solar DUO 10W, the smart sun powered charger & maintainer for all ‘12V’ batteries – Charger by day, monitor by night!
– Ideal for 12V lead-acid / 12.8V lithium batteries found in the vehicles and craft above.
– The smart charge controller automatically adjusts charge according to battery type and condition – OptiMate Solar DUO’s smart control guarantees longer battery life and more battery power!
– The controller’s fully automatic multi-step program brings the battery safely to full charge – Connect to the battery and OptiMate Solar DUO 10W does the rest, no supervision required!
Saves flat batteries from as low as 4V with its unique pulse action.
Fastest charge is delivered as ‘smart charge’ control selects pulse or continuous charge according to sunlight strength.
Intelligent maintenance continues the next day if battery retained charge overnight, otherwise the program reverts to OPTIMIZE step.
Battery condition is displayed every 3 seconds. Ready indication for STD, hi-performance AGM and lithium LFP batteries. Draws less than 0.5mA during monitor mode.
Automatically switches to CHARGE when solar power is sufficient.
he OptiMate DUO charger-monitor controller is separate to the solar panel and can be placed close to the vehicle or battery so that charge and maintenance progress can be easily followed. The solar panel must be mounted and angled to receive direct sunlight. The reach / distance between battery and panel is 315cm

What battery voltage can I charge?
The OptiMate Solar DUO is suited for charging 12V lead acid and 12.8V / 13.2V Lithium (LifePO4 / LFP) batteries.
What type of battery can I charge?
OptiMate Solar DUO can charge and maintain the following battery types:
STD: 12V ‘wet’ cell / refillable lead-acid battery. Liquid acid can leak out if battery is turned on its side.
AGM: 12V sealed lead-acid battery, acid is fully contained within the battery. A 12V AGM battery holds a higher charged voltage than
STD lead-acid batteries.
GEL: 12V GEL sealed lead-acid battery, acid is fully contained within the battery. A GEL battery holds similar charged voltages to AGM.
LFP: 12.8V / 13.2V sealed Lithium Ferrous Phospate battery. Lithium batteries contain no acid. A LFP battery holds a higher charged
voltage than AGM / GEL.
Important – OptiMate Solar DUO is suitable ONLY for 4 series cell Lithium Ferrous Phosphate or Lithium Iron Phosphate batteries. DO
NOT ATTEMPT TO CHARGE any other type of Lithium battery
