How do I know if my Optima battery is bad?

12.0-12.4 volts – LOW with 25-75% charge If your Optima is in this range and you think it should be charged, it’s not taking or not holding a charge. This usually means that your battery is sulfated, which happens when it sits for a long time (not charging) or is deeply discharged when it shouldn’t be.

Can you overcharge a Optima battery?

OPTIMA batteries are more resilient in high heat applications than flooded batteries, but they are still susceptible to permanent damage, if they are overcharged. We suggest using a higher amperage level of about 10 amps, to help break up this sulfation, but monitoring the battery closely during the charging process.
