How Do You Recover a Deeply-Discharged Battery?
DateMay 8, 2012
Did you know many of the "bad" batteries returned to retailers are really just deeply-discharged and work fine, when properly-recharged? Unfortunately, many battery chargers simply will not work on any battery that has been discharged below a minimum voltage level, which can be as high as 10.5 volts! This is not unique to OPTIMA and is in fact an issue related to some chargers.
Fortunately, OPTIMA's Digital 1200 12-volt battery charger can recover many deeply-discharged batteries, including batteries discharged all the way down to 1.25 volts! That's great news for any battery owner, but what if you don't own one of these chargers yet?
There are some other methods for recovering deeply-discharged batteries and we created the video below, which explains some options most consumers have in recovering deeply-discharged batteries.
