Optima Batteries: Extreme Engineered

Cars of today have increasingly high power demands. This is why Optima Batteries are engineered to keep powered under extremem conditions. Their revolutionary AGM gives their batteries longer life and superior performance over conventional car batteries. They are designed with SPIRALCELL TECHNOLOGY®, making them spill-proof, vibration-resistant, and allows installation in virtually any position. Additionally, they are maintenance-free, so you have can have peace of mind.

Optima AGM Battery Technology

In traditional conventional flooded car batteries, the positive and negative grids hang inside a box submerged in an acid solution. This differs from AGM batteries. AGM batteries are positive and negative plates that are separated by an absorbent glass mat that holds the electrolyte like a sponge. Which minimizes the potential for electrolyte spillage.

Optima AGM batteries uses a higher purity of lead than other AGM and flooded batteries. Optima uses 99.99% pure, virgin lead. Why is this important? High purity of lead means fewer contaminants and lower incidences of gassing, resulting in extended battery life and increases performance.

The Optima’s superior battery design has several advantages, which includes; lower internal resistance, greater plate area for superior starting power, faster recharging, and higher voltage characteristics during discharge. Optima AGM batteries are vibration resistant, and virtually spill-proof even when cracked or damaged.

Optima AGM batteries makes a difference.

  • Impressively high cranking characteristics in a small battery
  • Higher charge acceptance during recharges
  • Sealed maintenance-free design
  • Virtually spill-proof
  • Shock and vibration resistant
  • More power per pound as compared to standard batteries
  • Long service life

Optima Spiralcell Technology®

Spiralcell Technology provides many advantages that aren’t found in standard flat-plate batteries. This allows Optima batteries to deliver more power and outperform other batteries on the market.

  • At the heart of every Optima battery is a series of individual spiral-wound cells comprised of two pure (99.99%) lead plates coated in a precise coating of lead oxide. One coated plate is positive and the other is negative.
  • Each lead plate is manufactured as a continuous cast strip that maintains critical thickness tolerances.
  • The two plates get a proprietary separator (this key component is actually made of a micro-fiberglass blend that feels like fine cotton) that performs two critical functions: Keep the two plates from touching, and hold the electrolyte in a uniform suspension.
  • The unique manufacturing process of spiral winding continuous lead plates is far more precision-controlled and expensive than building traditional flat plate AGM batteries. Custom automated cell-winding machines are required to maintain the close tolerances required to maintain quality and performance.
  • Each completed Spiralcell ends up looking somewhat like a precisely wound “Jelly Roll”. Critical tolerances, temperatures, humidity and automated processes are maintained and constantly monitored.
  • Optima batteries precision-molded cylindrical cases are made to such tight tolerances that only virgin polypropylene can be used. This ensures perfect and uniform compression once the Spiralcell is inserted and also avoids any potential contaminants or impurities from pre-used plastic.
  • 12 Volt Optima batteries are made of 6 Spiralcell cells each having a fully charged open circuit voltage of 2.2 volts for deep cycle batteries and just over 2.1 volts for starting batteries.
  • Optima has built over 100 million individual spiral cells since the early 1990’s. No one knows how to build the highest quality and best performing spiral-wound batteries better than Optima.
