• Charging options for car & motorcycle • Includes wall bracket • Includes permanent charging lead • Microprocessor controlled • Clear status indicators • Can be left permanently connected
Attach the OXFORD Maximiser 360T to any 12V automotive battery up to 130Ah and it will run through a 7 stage diagnostic process to ensure the battery is in tip-top condition. The microprocessor controlled diagnostics identify the condition of your battery. A deeply discharged battery that is still viable will be recovered. With a battery in normal condition the battery charger will go straight to the charging process. The charge current can be adapted to the battery type, from a low charge rate for motorcycle batteries to a higher charge rate for car and large AGM batteries.
Suitable for motorcycle, car, truck and leisure batteries; NOT suitable for 6 Volt motorcycle batteries - For those please purchase the SAITO ProCharger only.

Upon connection to the battery Maximiser it conducts a polarity check to ensure that the connection are correct. Should something be connected wrongly a flashing warning light will appear on the digital display.
A fast analysis of the battery condition is preformed to establish if the battery is lightly discharged, deeply discharged (sulphated) or permanently damaged / short-circuited through internal deterioration/battery damage. Should the battery be permanently damaged or will not accept a charge, the Maximiser will return to the standby mode.
If the battery is deeply discharged, the Maximiser will perform a recovery that dispenses a special high voltage (20V) and a very low fixed current. This action stimulates the battery and is preformed for a period of up-to two hours.
This is used to charge a discharged battery at a constant current of either 0.6 amps or 3.6 amps depending on the charging mode selected. This is ideal for quick charging batteries and it is advised that this is only done for 80-90% of the overall charge.
Voltage Retention Check
Over a 60 minute period the Maximiser will cut the charging current and will monitor the battery voltage to identify if the battery is able to retain a full charge. This test is very useful when the battery remains connected to a vehicle as it may indicated that a small current drain exists, therefore possibly identifying wiring deficiency.
Advise Battery Condition
If during the Voltage Retention Check the voltage falls below 12.35V, then a weak battery indication light is displayed alerting you to the fact that the battery is unable to retain a charge. The Maximiser will continue to charge the battery up-to 200mA/hr until the battery is able to hold a charge. This gentle repairing action allows the battery condition to be optimised in a safe and controlled way.
Maintenance / Float Charge
The Maximiser will maintain and optimise the battery indefinitely so long as it remains connected to the battery. Hourly tests and voltage monitoring determines the battery condition and charge requirements. Should the battery’s voltage drop, the Maximiser will adjust the charging rate accordingly to ensure that the battery is brought back to full charge. If the hourly charge finds that the battery is still fully charged, the Maximiser will stop charging the battery, hence there is no fear of over-charging the battery.
The Maximiser also boasts the following unique features:
Charge Mode Option allows you, at the press of a button, to choose between 3 charge rates for Motorcycle (600mA), Car/Boat (3600mA) and Boost (for AGM batteries and cold weather charging).
Backlit LCD Display shows real-time charging rate. It shows both battery charge voltage and amperage.
Battery Condition Adviser shows if the battery is able to hold charge or is in need of replacement.
Wall Bracket and extra long cables make for ease-of-use in your garage.

"In a word: Essential"
A single Maximiser looks after three bikes in my garage, alternating between them thanks to permanent ring connectors to each battery. It's simple enough to use - just plug it in, select the charge mode via a single button and then sit back as it cycles through the process. It'll check the condition of the battery, supply the required current, then stop to prevent overcharging. It keeps a beady eye on the condition of said battery and tops it up if necessary.

London Bikers 15 Oct 2007 The online home for London's Motorcyclists and Couriers
The London Bikers editorial staff tested the OXFORD Maximiser 360T as to whether it lived up to its claims:
As with all London Bikers Reviews we try and put the products that we are offered to the full test, and the Oxford Maximiser 360T is no different. For this testing we are going to attempt to charge a Wind FB4L-B taken from an old S’reg motorcycle which has not been used for many, many years. The battery is in poor condition and is totally dead!
After removing the battery from the motorcycle I connected the Oxford Maximiser to the terminals via the permanent ring-lead connectors, which are attached using the batteries screws in the same way as the bike is attached.
Instantly the Maximiser was giving me a reading on the LCD display, this was the status of the battery condition. It told me exactly how many volts were in the battery.
Now time for some power... as we have a UK version of the Maximiser it came with a standard three-pin plug, however a European version is also available.
Upon plugging it in, the unit switches itself to standby, where you then have to press the power/mode button to turn the Maximiser on. The backlight then comes on and starts charging the battery which is indicated by a blue lit charge sign at the top of the unit.
It took about three hours for the Maximiser to say that our battery was charged but the real test comes when we connect it to a bike!
Our test bike for this experiment was a Piaggio Liberty 50. After connecting the battery things were looking good, the Datatool alarm has ‘bleeped’ into action and the headlights came on...pressed the button and hey-presto all’s working!
To summarise we have successfully recovered a battery which otherwise would have been thrown away and now it is fully functional. The Oxford Maximiser 360T has utilised all of the built-in technology to regenerate life in this battery and possibly could save people lots of money usually spent on new batteries.
We have thoroughly enjoyed testing the Oxford Maximiser 360T, which has really opened our eyes to what can be done through the power of technology...we only wish that I had the unit years ago!
