AccuMate 6/12V Charger/Optimiser - Description
The AccuMate is the sister product to the well established OptiMate battery charger/optimiser, which has a proven reputation with over 30,000 OptiMates sold annually in the UK alone. Like the OptiMate, the AccuMate is designed to automatically charge and monitor batteries with no danger of over-charging regardless of time. The AccuMate is suitable for all 6 and 12V lead acid batteries from 4Ah to 75Ah, making it perfect for owners of older vehicles which are not used on a daily basis.
Operation of the AccuMate is completely automatic. It uses a 1.2A constant current charge as the main stage, while monitoring the battery voltage. When this reaches a pre-set cut off point, it then switches to an intermediate constant voltage 'float charge'. Only when the AccuMate has detected that the battery is properly charged, will it switch to the final stage for correct long-term battery maintenance, and indicate a green LED. If at any time the AccuMate detects that the battery has discharged, it will automatically revert to the constant current stage.
Item qualifies for our Economy Shipping rate.
Lead Lengths From mains plug to unit = 2m From unit to connectors = 2.4m Power usage on maintainance charge: <0.3 kwh/week

Swallow Need Battery conditioners by Robert, West Midlands, 15 April 2009
I have a house in South Africa and one in the UK. I have one car in South Africa and two in the UK. The locals in South Africa refer to me and my family as 'swallows' as we fly backwards and forwards according to the season and the weather, spending about 6 summer months of the year in each country. Obviously with three cars which are not running for six months of the year but needing to leave them with alarms set and clocks running as well as avoiding radio recoding if the battery goes flat, keeping the batteries in good condition is an issue. I have three AccuMate devices that I connect up to my cars acording to which country I am in and it is totally satisfying to know that whenever and whichever car I get into after an 11 hour flight it will actually have a fully topped up battery and will actually start. Being aware of my experience and satisfaction, a number of people who, like me, have houses in South Africa have purchased an AccuMate battery conditioner as a reult of them either having flat batteries or having to disconnect them when they leave, with all the problems that entails.
Accumate Charger. by Mike Foster, Nazeing. Essex, 16 April 2008
Bought an Accumate in1999 and it has finally packed up in April 2008 ! Eight years use before it failed,can`t be bad! I`ve ordered another....will it beat 8 years use?
Very Impressed by Roy Charlton, , 16 March 2008
An excellent system I now have total faith in 100% charged battery at all times,just ordering a second for my other car.
the best charger ever by Jon Loves His Caterham, Weybridge, 16 February 2008
I love this product; can't tell you how much I love it but I do, mainly because I've just been out in my Caterham for the day and for the first time ever didn't have to use a charger!
I love it...buy one...and buy one for someone you love, it was valentines day this week after all!!
First rate battery Charger by Stephen Barker, Colchester, 02 February 2008
Does what it says, ideal for charging our 12 volt leisure caravan battery and the 6 volt battery in our Austin Seven, very pleased. Delivery excellent
Excellent Service by Martyn Ridley, West Sussex, 29 October 2007
Did exactly what it said on the tin! Ordered it thursday delivered on friday battery charged on Saturday.
Crikey! It actually works! by Mark Ribbands, Norfolk/phuket/kl/london, 25 October 2007
I now have five of these Accumate gizmos: Two in UK, one in KL, one in Phuket and one in London. Now, when I move between offices, no longer is my first task to deal with flat car batteries. This allows me to proceed straight to the local cocktail bar: a most satisfactory outcome. Thank you Vertar! One idea: Why not offer bulk packs of, say, five products at a discount? Many people, especially collectors, have several little-used vehicles.
So good I bought another by Wryka, Colchester, Essex, 23 October 2007
As the title says - I bought one for the TVR for over wintering, was lucky enough to be given a Lotus so bought one for that too - if you've got the best why look for something else.
Simply great! by Debs Harper, Monmouth Uk, 06 August 2007
This is a great product very easy to use, I fitted this without the hubby's help and he says I'm blonde !!! This is small and compact very good clear instructions, this is one for the ladies. This is great for the price as it does all batteries and most chargers will not do gel, so this is a great all in one to have. Not only is this a five star product you are getting it from a 5
website, with super fast delivery times.
AccuMate 6/12 volt Charger/Optimiser. by G. Withington, Greater Manchester., 09 July 2007
Ordered above plus wall bracket and accessory plug lead, delivered within 24 hours. Connected them up and within the next 24 hours it appears my flat battery problems are a thing of the past. Thanks Verta, great product.
Does the Job & does it well - what more could you want!? by Russell Ould, Birmingham, Uk, 27 June 2007
Ordered this a couple of days ago, arrived in double-quick time.
Opened the box, read the concise and easy-to-understand instructions; plugged the charger in, connected dead battery, sat back and relaxed for 12 hours. Came back and the battery was charged!!
No fuss, no complicated buttons & switches to worry about, plenty of idiot-proofing, just plug in and forget about it.
Great product, quick delivery, well packed, good price. Thank you, Vertar!!
Excellent battery charger/maintainer by C. Carter, Cornwall, 20 June 2007
I have a classic car that stays in storage and gets started maybe twice a year. The battery would always be flat and unrecoverable at every six-monthly attempt to turn the engine over.
The Accumate 6/12 keeps the battery at full charge, and is connected all the time I am not using the car. For the cost of one new battery, I'm very pleased. Great product, does exactly what it says it will do. If you have a classic car in storage and need to keep the battery charged and ready to go, this is the product.
No flat battery! by Matthew, Herts, Uk, 20 June 2007
Bought one of these about two weeks ago after regularly being stumped by a flat battery in my 'weekend toy' on the sunny days precisely when I wanted to use it most. It is now great knowing that I can rely on the battery being fully charged whenever I want to use my car on a sunny summer day (quite rare nowadays!).
AccuMate 6/12v Charger by Keith Bartlett, Saffron Walden, 22 April 2007
Perfect piece of kit that has sorted the flat battery problem on a vehicle that is not used very much. Now when i want to use it i know the battery will be able to start it. Highly recommended.
Very Good by R. Fuller, Guernsey, 11 April 2007
I find your accumate 6/12 charger very good, I now have two of them, which are in use the whole time.
accmate 6/12 volt charger by Peter Harrison, Liverpool, 28 March 2007
I have always had the problem with low or flat battries in the winter months for my classic bikes. I need the 6/12 volt charger for my bikes, After purchasing the Accmate i have found that i have never had low or flat battery, the light indicators are very clear and the 6/12 volt switch is easy to use, the best charger that i have ever purchased, i know were to go if ever i need a replacement.
Write Your Own Review For The AccuMate 6/12V Charger/Optimiser
"I would just like to let you know how pleased I was with every aspect of my
order.As well as prompt delivery the item has lived up to expectation. The
terrible wind and rain recently has not been a problem as normally my car
leaks into the boot,The high winds have not even been able to move the cover
from its fixed position.
The only suggestion I would make is the possibility of elastication on the
side mirror pockets as I have resorted in using a couple of elastic bands to
stop them sliding off.
Thanks for being the solution to a long unsolved problem
