How it works: As simple as 1-2-3!
Attach the fused clip set to the short input cable (side marked 12 – 16V) and then connect the OptiMate DC to DC to a charged source battery e.g. your vehicle’s 12V battery. The OptiMate DC to DC’s SAVE and CHARGE LEDs will blink together for 1 minute, indicating it is ready to charge a battery.
Within 1 minute* connect the output charge lead to the battery requiring charge, using the standard clip set or connect directly to the battery that may have the weatherproof battery lead already pre-wired. Charging proceeds when the SAVE or CHARGE LED turn full on. *After 1 minute the OptiMate DC to DC turns off if not connected to the battery that needs charging. To re-start, disconnect from the source battery and then once again reconnect.
Wait until the green TEST LED blinks. ‘First Aid’ charging has been completed! Leave the charger connected for ‘365’ long term maintenance.
