Optima 12-Volt Battery Chargers
When it comes to batteries, charging and proper maintenance is necessary to ensure you always have peak power; especially when it’s a key component in competition and sound-off sessions. If your battery has been sitting for any period of time, there’s a good chance it will not provide you with optimal performance, which could be the difference between hoisting the trophy and scratching your head.

Luckily, Optima provides two solutions to maintain, charge and even recover your power blocks. Designed for 12 V batteries in an ultra-convenient package, the Digital 400 12V Performance Maintainer and Battery Charger takes charging and maintenance to a whole new level. Not only does it work with everything from performance cars and trucks to marine vehicles, it can recover discharged batteries that were once otherwise lost.

Proof that power can come in small packages, the Digital 400 charges at four amps on large batteries and three amps on smaller ones. It also maintains 12 V AGM and flooded batteries during long storage sessions. It is also full of user-friendly features, including a stand, wall or hood hangar, battery indicators and check icons, battery clamp, spark-free connection technology, reverse polarity and ambient air compensation technologies for the ultimate in safety, performance and convenience. Its price also sets it even further apart from the competition at $99 (USD).

To those looking for added power in a bigger package, the Digital 1200 literally has all you need and more.

Along with recovering deeply-discharged batteries, the Digital 1200 features a full LCD display for fill rate, charging, maintaining and fault detection modes to know exactly what’s happening inside your battery. It also includes quick-charge profiles for fast setup of various battery types and a host of new features to make working under the hood easier than ever before.

For added comfort and usability, the Digital 1200 features a built-in LED work light, ergonomically-designed DC charging clamps and USB charging ports for smartphones, cameras and other devices. On top of its power recovery and maintenance capabilities, the Digital 1200 pushes the boundaries of versatile and convenient battery charging and, at $199 (USD), it offers it all at a great price.
