I believe you can use a regular charger as long as it does not have a desulfate function...chargers with that option   put out too high of a voltage  and will damage a lithium battery .

I have an Optimate 4 with canbus mode. Like the electronics in the Lithium battery, the canbus electronics would get upset with a charger going into recovery or desulphate mode. Hence, if you want the Optimate 4 to be able to open the canbus port, you need to manually change mode.

I imagine the picture of the Optimate that is Lithium safe just automates switching into "canbus mode" whereas the Optimate 4 requires this to be done manually.
