Optima Batteries announced yesterday that they have developed and will begin selling a high performance battery charger and maintainer specifically designed to enhance the performance of Optima and other AGM batteries. Using an advanced microprocessor, the unit out performs conventional 12V chargers, can recover deeply discharged batteries, and is touted as being able to extend the already long service life of these batteries.
Other near features in include USB charging ports that can accomodate smart phones, tablets, cameras, and all of the other assorted electronic gadgets we all use to death these days, an easy to read LCD charging gauge, and LED indicators that prompt the user when selecting what type of battery is being charged or maintained.
If you are going to invest in a high performance battery, we think it only makes sense to invest in high performance equipment to keep it working at the optimal level! This unit will be available in Spring/Summer 2012. No price point was announced at this time.
