    Default Charging optima blue top

    WHat is the best way to charge an optima blue top? It is the d34m so it is for cranking and deep cycle. Also what is a good charger? I have read that you need to use a charger that is made for AGM batts. Thanks

    I bought 2 deep cycle Optimas a couple of years ago and at the same time I purchased this charger and it has worked great now for over 2 years.

    But it is a little pricey! Luckily it was for a work project so it didn't come out of my pocket.

    No, but there might be a concern over providing to many amps causing the gel to boil or something. Unless I am in a super hurry I always thought it is best to use the lowest amps you can when charging a normal wet cell battery.
