With smartphones becoming increasingly smarter and incorporating multiple functions, it's not a surprise that their role in motorcycling has increased. However, their batteries have now kept up with the development pace and running out of power is still the main menace.

Optimate knows this only too well and offers an extensive range of smartphone-dedicated chargers and address almost all the power-related problems a motorcycle rider may encounter.

From standard 1 A current output to calibrated 2.1 A values that are compatible with the charging requirements of modern handheld devices and gadgets, Optimate has everything covered. Making things worse is the fact that the motorcycle environment is nowhere near as calm and quiet as the atmosphere at home or in the office.

Vibrations, inclement weather, dust, moisture, heat, prolonged exposure to direct sunlight are the factors that actively contribute to the early demise of the regular chargers and cables. Well, Optimate's gear is different and was engineered to perform in spite of these enemies.

Besides being sturdy and perfectly capable of taking a beating during a long journey, the Optimate chargers are also smart and will protect the bike's battery. When the voltage being fed to the chargers drops under a certain value, they will stop working, thus preventing excessive discharging that could lead to failure in starting the bike.

These chargers come with a variety of plugs, from the 12mm DIN ones to DC and SAE ones, while splitters, extenders, dust caps water caps are also available. The chargers themselves are encased in tamper-proof, watertight enclosures that prevent any damage from moisture.

Another cool feature is full compliance with Apple's charging standards that eliminates the frustration so many riders had to experience when using non-genuine and/or incompatible accessories. Apple devices have circuits that are sensitive to non-compliant chargers and cables and they would often block the charging to avoid any potential issues, leaving their owners with dead phones and tablets.

Optimate solved the problem by incorporating the "Apple handshake" and making sure their products are accepted by all Apple devices. Check out the motorcycle-specific Optimate chargers and choose the one that suits your needs best.
