Engineer The Quit Out Of It: This Tour Of The Optima Battery Manufacturing Plant Is Amazing

This is one of the coolest videos that highlight the manufacturing end of a product that we have ever seen. Not only do we get a peek behind the curtain of the manufacturing process for Optima Batteries, we see some of the testing, we see the raw materials and mostly we get to understand how the people behind the product Engineer The Quit Out Of It. By bringing in some of the racing brand ambassadors as well as letting us see the facility, it’s a really interesting showcase of the product.

Hey, the slow motion footage of a battery being melted with a flame thrower (and still working) as well as being smashed, shot, and otherwise hating life is pretty cool and artistic as well as dramatic. The shots of the bars of 99.99% pure lead were amazing as well as looking at some of the machinery that completes the physical construction of the batteries themselves.

Optima has been an industry leader for some time and they show no signs of abdicating that position. In fact, they are pushing as hard or harder now than they ever have and you’ll understand why when you watch the video. Awesome stuff.

    I hauled some lead ingots from a smelter in L.A. to the Exide plant in Salina, Ks. You can only haul 4 of them before you are over-loaded on weight at 80,000#. Those things weigh 10,000# each.

    The only two people I know who bought an Optima battery both had them leak acid from around the battery posts. I won’t buy one.

    I have 3 Optima Batteries for my Corvette, the most expensive and the worst batteries I ever had. Maybe they have gotten better, but I will never know. There is a new type of battery out there, Lithium Ion, they are pricey, but probably worth it.

      Lithium batteries are very expensive, they take a different charger and a special fire extinguisher to put out so I have no plans to use them even on my dragster due to added costs of everything else needed. Also Optima were good batteries until JCI(now owner by Clarios) bought them out and moved manufacturing out of the USA to Mexico. East Penn(Deka) makes great AGM batteries here in the US.
