- Water Resistant
- Portable and Convenient
- Supplied with Crocodile Clips and In Car Adaptor
This solar charger is extremely useful – you will never have to worry about a flat battery again!
For anyone leaving their car or boat unattended for long periods this little charger will ensure the battery is topped up and ready to go just when you need it most.
No more sitting around waiting for the break-down truck or scrambling around for jumpleads. Just pop this up on the dashboard and plug into your in-car electrical socket to ensure a constantly charged battery. It even works on overcast winter days and has an inbuilt diode to prevent battery drainage at night!
Supplied with a set of crocodile clips and in-car socket adaptor means it can be used on a variety of different applications from cars, motorbikes & camper vans to boats & caravans.
Performance & Operation
The charger will deliver current to the 12V battery at 4W, which means in ideal conditions, the panel will generate 4W of power per hour. This is an optimum amount of power to prevent a large battery going flat – even in winter.
The solar charger is fully water proof and can be left outdoors – however ensure your battery is kept dry and undercover.
On some makes of car when the ignition key is removed it isolates the battery – in this case you will have to attach the crocodile clips directly to the battery itself.
We recommend using with a battery size of 30Ah or greater. If using with a lower capacity batter then a 4A charge controller will be required.
NOTE: Most car batteries are 70Ah and above.
Keep the solar charger away from fire to ensure damage and injury do not occur.
Do not dismantle the solar charger
Take care not to damage the electrical leads so to avoid a short circuit.
Handle the electrical clips by the plastic only.

“Mesh is quite thick so it does block out sunlight quite effectively but it doesn’t ‘black out’ the windows like having tinted windows would which isn’t what we were after. No problems with the suction cup, the shades have stayed on ever since we put them on windows.” This product is made by SUMEX, Car Accessories, World Renowned Brand .

- Automatic self-diagnostic test: Immediately on connection, the microprocessor checks the circuit and flashes all LEDs (except charge current LEDs) to confirm correct operation.
- Dual-stage recovery action: If the diagnostic check determines that the battery is sulphated (deep-discharged), the first stage attempts to drive in an initial current by applying up to 16V for a brief limited period. If this is unsuccessful, the TURBO recovery stage engages (indicated by a flashing recovery LED), which increases the applied voltage to up to 22V. This action is limited to a maximum two hours.
- Charge current display: A thermometer style central LED column shows delivered current. This, together with the expanded charge programme status LED information provides the user with detailed insight regarding the progress of both the state of charge and the state of health of the battery.
- High efficiency: Despite delivering 33% more power than OptiMate 3sp, OptiMate 4 consumes less electricity, which is welcome in these days of high energy costs and eco-awareness.
- Enhanced battery testing: Green, yellow and red “traffic-light” LEDs indicate alone or in combinations to provide 5 possible results of the end-of-programme test for power drain, whether in the battery or due to a problem in the bike’s electrical system.
· Diagnosis of deep-discharge or light sulphation; automatic recovery phase with precisely controlled parameters to recover many neglected batteries, even from as low as 2 Volts. In really difficult cases the interactive programme gives the battery a “Turbo Recovery” charge.
· Multi-stage automatic charging programme monitors and controls both voltage and current while charging the battery to ensure optimum charge for the battery, without any risk of over-charging. OptiMate 4 is totally safe even for long-term connection.
· Automatic double-check ensures that the battery is fully charged before switching over to maintenance (float charge) mode. If the check indicates that the monitored signals suggesting full charge were premature, the charger reverts to the main charging stage and continues this procedure until the battery is definitely fully charged.
· Hourly checks (in maintenance mode) for any signs that the battery is not able to hold its charge, or that it is being drained by something connected to it. If all is well, the green LED indicates after the first of these hourly checks. With OptiMate 4, five test results can be indicated and are continually updated. This avoids the situation where a one-off power drain (e.g. alarm) causes a red LED indication indefinitely. In this way, OptiMate 4 continues to test & maintain your battery indefinitely, displaying a real-time battery condition test result. Should a power drain or defective battery be detected, the red LED will indicate a “suspect” condition but the charging circuit will continue to support the battery until disconnected.
· Automatic cancellation of charging programme when mains power fails. On restoration of mains power the battery is automatically re-assessed and the charging programme appropriate to the battery status is immediately restarted.
· Now includes IP64 protection against water ingress.

There’s a huge increase in the number of satellite navigation systems, radar detectors, DVD players and general plug and play systems being used in car these days. However, most vehicles only have one 12V outlet so more are often needed
The new Ring multisocket range has been created to meet this demand. With superior quality and functionality, the range has been specifically designed to complement and perform to the same high standard as the high value devices plugged into them.
The use of these devices depletes battery power sometimes to such a level as to prevent the car from starting. To overcome this Ring have built in a battery status indicator.
By using electronic circuitry and LED indicator lamps you can monitor the status of the battery voltage and start up the engine whenever required.
In addition this clever feature also monitors the performance of the car’s charging system.
