Tool Time Thursday: Optima’s Digital 1200 Charger and Maintainer

For those in Southern California, winter is just the mythical rainy season, but for folks in the rest of the country this season means snow and ice. As the leaves begin to fall, auto enthusiasts begin to think about storing their hot rods, rat rods, and project cars during long cold winter months. Part of preparing a car for storage is making considerations for maintaining the battery.

By keeping the battery at an optimal level it will save you time, money, and frustration when spring rolls around. Optima Batteries manufactures numerous gel battery offerings that are used in automotive and marine applications. These AGM batteries benefit from the use of Optima’s Digital 1200 Battery Charger and Maintainer. This product charges and maintains both 12 volt AGM and traditional batteries.

 

This product features a battery maintainer port and a cable for when your hot rod is tucked away for a long winter’s nap. With the Digital 1200, your vehicle’s battery will be conditioned and maintained all while extending the life of your Optima battery. Additionally, if you have a battery that barely shows signs of life, then the Digital 1200 might just be a life saver for you.

There are those who have a collection of nearly dead recycle grade bound AGM batteries, but the Digital 1200 can resurrect some severely depleted batteries. When one of these near dead batteries is connected to the unit it is easy to program thanks to the LCD battery charging gauge. As an additional creature comfort, the Digital 1200 Charger offers a USB port to charge your smartphone, tablet, or camera.
