They are pretty nifty looking batteries. But what the h*** good are they if you can't charge them? Sounds pretty cheap to me. I'm not going to jumper another vehicle to the battery and leave the vehicle running for hours while waiting for the battery to charge. Besides, won't another vehicle's charging system only pump more current into the battery than a 15 amp charger. The charging system will easily provide more than 30-35 amps to a dead battery. How can this be safer than the charger.

Are the Optima's just as tempermental to a trickle charger or a bettery tender?

In God we trust, all others bring data. Bring me some data.
