• Charging options for 12V & 6V batteries• Microprocessor controlled• Clear status indicators• Can be left permanently connected• Prepared for wall fitting• Permanent charging leads & crocodile clip included• Plugs straight into many BMW, Triumph & Japanese 2-pin sockets
Probably the best intelligent electronic charger available for battery charging/diagnostics and care. Suitable for motorcycles, scooters, Quad/ATVs. Adjustable from 6V to 12V, the ProCharger is suitable for conventional Lead/Acid batteries as well as all maintenance-free gel and AGM batteries including the entire GetGeared battery range.
The ProCharger uses state-of-the-art microprocessor controlled charging technology to provide optimal care for your battery. The software intelligently supervises all phases of the charging and maintenance process and continuously adapts to the condition of the battery. The battery can remain attached for months. Overloading is impossible.
A comparative RiDE Magazine test awarded the SAITO ProCharger test scores equal to or better than those of the 2 dominant chargers in the UK on the key criteria of: delivering a complete battery charge, charging time, battery recovery from a low and a very low discharge state.
Long mains & output leads makes this charger practical in most circumstances. A compact adaptor kit for wiring to your bike is included as is a crocodile clip lead for direct connection to the battery terminals.
Operating voltage 220-240V
Output current max. 1Amp
Note: Conventional trickle chargers and car battery chargers will damage motorcycle batteries. Motorcycle batteries are designed to be small, which means the metal components are reduced in size and are easily damaged by high charging currents and chargers that continue to trickle charge after the battery's full capacity has been reached. The SAITO ProCharger is different: It helps you keep your bike on the road with a micro-processor controlled regime to keep your battery in optimum condition!The (very) techy stuff:
Multi-stage charge mode (I /U1 /U2) as well as pause cycles
Battery can remain permanently attached
Protection from short-circuiting and reverse polarity through an electronic protection circuit
Automatic battery care mode
Maintenance mode to maintain your battery's maximum charge capacity
Charge and discharge function (ideal for winter storage)
Test functions, including fault diagnostics and testing of the battery’s ability to hold charge
Manually switch between 6V and 12V
Charging current maximum 1A (full automatic adjustment)
16 LEDs in 3 colors deliver a comprehensive and easily understood status display
- 5 LED lights for the five-stage charging cycle (displayed in % bands)
- 2 LED lights for the indication of the voltage setting (6V and 12V)
- 4 LED lights to indicate the battery condition: Deep discharge, defective, reverse polarity and ready for use
- 4 LED lights for the identification of the basic functions
- 1 LED light for mains connection
Long connection cables: Mains lead 1.70 metres; Battery connection cable 2.20 metres
Cable set with crocodile clips for direct connection
Cable set with eyelet connectors to create a permanent charging point on your bike
Prepared for wall fitting

Trevor Franklin MCN Chief Road Tester reviewed the Saito ProCharger his article reads as follows: "Being that I am poor (read skint), and contrary to what MCN readers may think, I have not amassed over the years a garage full of motorcycles. But even so there are many occasions when a motorcycle battery charger is required. Mostly when financially astute mateys (Fen colloquialism for cadging friends) need their bike batteries charging, or when dibbo here leaves parking lights on... Or when classic-owning neighbours need six volt batteries (whatever they are) rescuing from the brink of death with a charger that periodically sends discharge pulses to remove and counteract sulphate deposits on the battery's lead plates. From car batteries to the latest acid-free, gel filled, maintenance-free matchbox-like batteries, this Saito unit has charged them all. With LED lights to show every stage of charging and a clunky manual 6-12v switch, even Mr Mole like me can see what is going on. The long mains lead is a bonus, as is the wall mount facility. The charge leads can be permanent bolt-on or quick and easy crocodile clip. Full technical spec is long and impressive, so visit the supplier's web site for the low down. Brilliant."
"The Saito ProCharger gets 5 out of 5 stars!
Verdict: very good!!!" PS Magazine judgement:
"Anyone serious about motorcycles or track racing needs a battery charger. And we want it to be able to do everything on the one hand and cost as little as possible on the other. The extensively equipped ProCharger from Saito achieves this completely with its multistage charging process (max. charging current 1 A) and keen price ..." "The care mode to remove the sulphate coating on older batteries is also fantastic .... The enclosed plug connector is particularly practical ...."
The Motorrad Fahrer judgement reads: "An intelligent charger with diagnosis and test functionality, all with easily understood user instructions and fully automatic sensing, that chooses the right charging sequence depending on battery condition." "An informative LED display shows the charging mode applied and the progressing level of charge across 5 LED indicators." "In the care mode the device sends out periodic discharge impulses to remove and counteract sulphate deposits on the lead plates." "The "ProCharger" can remain attached permanently, offers detailed operating instructions, and comes with substantial and practical long leads of 180 cm (power cord) and 242 cm (charging cable)." Motorrad Fahrer summary:
"A highly intelligent device with excellent equipment levels, an informative user display and an attractive price."
The mopped judgement reads: "Retailer brands often have the advantage that they can do as much as similar appliances from manufacturer brands, and are considerably more favourably priced. One great example is the "Saito ProCharger". The £49.99 battery charger really does everything a charger must be able to do for domestic use. And this is true for ancient 6 volt lead batteries as well as ultra-modern 12 volt sealed gel units." mopped says: "Can do an amazing amount, costs astonishingly little. If you have not got one yet, get out there and get one."
