RE: [DML] Optima Batteries?

Hi Dave,


In one word?.YES.  IMHO, and to put it as politely as possible, Optima
batteries suck! When we experienced the same problems as you (about five or
so years ago) I was told by one of their engineers that the batteries needed
to be charged (at 100AMPS !!!!) for a few hours! They sent me a euro-spec
charger from the factory  and I bought a 120V converter. After making sure
our business insurance was up to date I plugged the whole mess into an
outlet and waited to see what would happen. After twenty minutes the battery
started to smoke like it was going to explode. So ended my affiliation, and
any recommendation I could make, with Optima batteries. They are great until
the first time they lose their charge and then BUYER BEWARE!

I know a lot of us use Optima batteries in our cars, but I'm on my third one in two years.
The guy at the parts counter at Advance told me he gets a lot of them
back that are only a year to a year and a half old. Have others
experienced the same issues with these batteries?
