    Will never purchase another Optima again!

    Not worth the money - life expectancy is short, below average, and subpar compared to my experience with conventional batteries. I was burnt once upon purchasing a red top for a 79 Bronco and experienced a failure within the first year. I attributed the failure to draining battery down and using improper charging techniques. I then, chose to give Optima another shot with my 04 Rubicon. Battery would discharge after sitting for extended periods. I invested in an Optima battery charger and reconditioned the battery. After having the redtop for a year, I traded up to a 2014 Rubicon unlimited and swapped the battery into the new (to family) vehicle. The battery, without warning, left me stranded requiring a tow and dealer service. Mind you, the battery is less than 2 1/2 years old while seeing normal use in a relatively new and well maintained vehicle electrical system. I attempted to charge and recondition the battery two times with the Optima charger and it will not hold a load and will simply click and discharge 25-30% upon trying to activate the starter and then require another charge and recondition. Why would anyone spend for premium for a product the has a lesser life than cheaper, conventional batteries? I, for one, will NEVER purchase another Optima battery ever again!

    Cons: Second instance in which the battery didn't last for 3 years - I even have an Optima charger, unable to bring battery back to life- VERY disappointed

    Pros: it worked for a short while

    Cons: crap now that its made out of country

    Seems to be dying after just over two years

    2 of 2 people found this helpful

    When I bought this just over two years ago I was really pleased with the sealed design and the cold cranking amps available. Now we have a little "cold" show up in Dallas and it is having trouble turning over . I am going to go to Autozone to see what they test the battery to be but I know I am putting out 13.9 volts out of the alternator no problem.

    Pros: Great initial operation

    Cons: Lifespan is now looking sketchy
