    Shee-it! Just remembered I put the 2 amp charger on my Blue top Optima 30 hours ago.

    It was not hot. Think it's fried?

    It started my boat Sunday with some hesitation. Screw it I'll buy new in April.

    Are you out of your warranty already or have you had it for a while?

    I just bought a new blue top Saturday.
    The old one lasted six years.

    I don't know about that.. I've got two red tops on my houseboat. run my stereo and lights, is about all. Kept up by 30 watt solar panel.

    HB was launched 10/97. Original batteries still up and running.

    Prolly be dead next time I see it though, now that I just opened my mouth..
    Is it just me or are toilet seats getting smaller?

    I have 2 Optima’s that I rescued from the recycle bin they’ve been with me over 6 years. Over charging Optima’s is the wrest thing you can do to them.

    I have 3 optima blue top's that have been in my boat for over 6 seasons. They run a 2,000+ watt stereo and are still going like new.

    Proper charging and maintenance is the key. I used a 3 stage automatic charger, charge them every day of use, and keep the batt's fully charged when not in use.

    I think your okay. I forget my trickle charger on my boat all the time. Well no more than a couple days. Battery is going on 6 years old. If it was charging at 30A I would say maybe!!
