The OptiMATE TM-523-6 Solar 60W Travel Kit is the smart way to keep your 12V batteries charged and maintained, even when the power is low. Our product is powered by the sun and converts low power from the solar panel to high current pulses, making it highly effective for charging and maintenance.

The TM-523-6 model is perfect for EFB, STD, AGM, and GEL 12V batteries ranging from 2 - 240Ah. With a charging current of up to 5A from a 60W panel, you can trust our product to keep your battery charged and in good condition. The 3-5A pulse current also ensures that your battery is maintained even during periods of low solar power.

Designed to save your low voltage battery from 1V, charge it, and then maintain it. You can easily monitor your battery's condition every 3 seconds, and the device automatically switches to CHARGE when the solar power is sufficient.

The kit is highly versatile and can be used both indoors and outdoors. Its weatherproof charge controller case and battery lead make it perfect for use in any weather condition, while the battery clip set and 20W solar panel included ensuring that you have everything you need to get started.

With an input voltage of 15-22V, our product is highly efficient and can help you save on your electricity bills. It also has a low-temperature threshold of -4 degrees, making it perfect for use in cold weather conditions.

        What battery voltage can I charge?The OptiMate Solar DUO is suited for charging 12V lead acid and 12.8V / 13.2V Lithium (LifePO4 / LFP) batteries.
        What type of battery can I charge?

        OptiMate Solar DUO can charge and maintain the following battery types:

        • STD: 12V ‘wet’ cell / refillable lead-acid battery. Liquid acid can leak out if battery is turned on its side.
        • AGM: 12V sealed lead-acid battery, acid is fully contained within the battery. A 12V AGM battery holds a higher charged voltage than
        • STD lead-acid batteries.
        • GEL: 12V GEL sealed lead-acid battery, acid is fully contained within the battery. A GEL battery holds similar charged voltages to AGM.
        • LFP: 12.8V / 13.2V sealed Lithium Ferrous Phospate battery. Lithium batteries contain no acid. A LFP battery holds a higher charged voltage than AGM / GEL.

        Important - OptiMate Solar DUO is suitable ONLY for 4 series cell Lithium Ferrous Phosphate or Lithium Iron Phosphate batteries. DO

        NOT ATTEMPT TO CHARGE any other type of Lithium battery

        What are 'MONITOR MODE' and 'CHARGE MODE'?

        MONITOR MODE - When the solar panel stops delivering power (sun has gone down in the evening or cloud covers sun) the
        OptiMate Solar DUO controller changes to BATTERY MONITOR mode and will now indicate battery charge level every 3 seconds.
        LED 2, 3, 4 or 5 indicate battery charge level.

        CHARGE MODE - LED #1 lights if the solar panel can deliver charge. LED #1 flashes when charge current is delivered to the
        battery. Speed of flashing corresponds to current delivered i.e. fast means high current, slow means low current (cloudy
        conditions or battery is not accepting high current).
        LED 2, 3, 4 or 5 indicate charge progress whilst CHARGE LED #1 is flashing. If no battery is connected only LED #1 turns on.

        When is battery charged?If the battery is sufficiently charged, LED #4 or 5 will immediately light together with LED #1 (flashing).
        When battery needs charge?If the battery needs further charging LED #2 or LED #3 will light together with LED #1 (flashing).
