Oxford Oximiser 900 is keeping the battery on my BMW GS1250 in top condition over the quiet wintertime.
Modern bikes with all the high tec accessories, drain the battery of your motorcycle even when switched off.
A battery maintenance charger like the Oxford Oximiser 900 is all it takes to keep toped up without breaking the bank.
Why the Oxford Oximiser 900?
Let's get it straight. I didn't look for do it all solution. All I was asking for was a battery management tool for the wintertime.
The Cold weather and inactivity are bad for the life of a battery. Not surprisingly, most battery failures come to light during the colder times of the year.
So what are my thoughts on the Oxford Oximiser 900?
The first impression, the unit feels a bit flimsy, made of thin plastic.
There is no weight in the unit itself. So if you are a bit heavy-handed, handle with care. The unit will not withstand a step one or a propper accidental kick.
The mains lead is to short for, just reaching the cable drum standing next to the bike and the unit resting on the seat.
There is a fly lead included to connect to your battery on your bike, so you have a handy charging point.
Also included is a lead with a pair of crocodile clips for charging on the bench.
The backlit display is easily readable and gives you all the info you need over the state of your battery.
- Charge Status
- Battery level indicator
- Battery voltage meter
- Mains indicator
- Battery connection error indicator
- Backlit display button

I like the Oxford Oximiser 900 for the use on my bike. It does what you want it to do. There are no bells or whistles. Install the fly lead and plug it in.
It is light, practical, and does everything you need for your battery maintenance. If you take it with you on your winter travel, you appreciate size and weight.
