DIGITAL 400 Warranty Manual

DIGITAL 1200 Warranty Manual

The OPTIMA factory warranty policy requires a receipt from the original purchaser. Your purchase receipt:

  1. Establishes the beginning date of service.
  2. Identifies you as the original purchaser.
  3. Identifies that the battery is used in a consumer (not commercial) application.
  4. Identifies the sale as a retail purchase of a new and unused OPTIMA Battery.

An OPTIMA battery does not have a lifetime warranty. Your initial purchase of an OPTIMA battery carries a warranty based on the model and type of usage. If your OPTIMA battery is replaced under the warranty policy, your replacement battery carries a warranty period from the original OPTIMA purchase date. Warranty replacement batteries do not carry a new warranty. The only way for us to determine your original battery purchase date is to have the original receipt.

The same OPTIMA battery model that you purchased is used in many demanding commercial applications. Those applications carry a much different warranty than our consumer warranty. In addition, some OPTIMA batteries are provided to customers for testing or sponsorships. These batteries may not carry a warranty. Lastly, even though OPTIMA discourages this practice, some battery specialists may recondition OPTIMA products that have been returned for warranty replacement. These batteries could be resold and they would have absolutely no factory warranty coverage. Though we pride ourselves in the relationships we have with our distributors, and we have numerous programs and incentives to have defective batteries returned to us, we cannot have complete control over what happens with every returned battery.

For technical or warranty support, please call OPTIMA customer service at 1-888-867-8462 (888-8OPTIMA) between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m. (CST) Monday through Friday, or via email at
The first step in diagnosing a battery issue is measuring voltage. This helps identify how much energy is in the electrical fuel tank. REDTOPs (and the 34M BLUETOP) will measure about 12.6-12.8V when fully-charged (6.3-6.4 for a 6V battery). All other YELLOWTOP & BLUETOP batteries will measure about 13.0-13.2V when fully-charged. If the battery is not fully-charged, it's a good idea to attempt to fully-charge the battery with a battery charger. Learn more about charging your battery here.

When you buy an OPTIMA® battery AND an OPTIMA® Chargers Digital 1200 at the same time from, you'll get a one-year extension on your battery warranty directly from OPTIMA. OPTIMA understands the value of proper battery charging and maintenance, so much so that at OPTIMA we have expanded our product offering beyond high-performance AGM batteries into high-performance chargers. The OPTIMA Chargers Digital 1200 offers best-in-class charging performance and will extend the life of your batteries when used properly. We're so confident that the Digital 1200 will increase battery life that we'll extend the consumer battery warranty by a full year when you buy a charger and battery at the same time. Now that's a winning combination.
