Accumate Optimate 4 battery charger, £50 at MCN Shop
Time used: One year
What’s good: This Optimate 4 battery charger and optimiser has been in constant use since I got it last year keeping the battery on my 1998 Honda CBR600F in perfect condition. I fitted the permanent battery terminals and have hidden the plug-in socket almost out of sight and zip-tied it in place. As soon as I finish riding I plug it in and the charger does what it does, which includes a lot of things I can only pretend to understand. It works perfectly and is beautifully built; that’s all I need to understand.
What’s not: Nothing that merits a mention
