Optima Battery / Failure
Today is May 14, 2009
Purchased a 6Volt Optima Battery in March of 2007 for around 120 dollors. After 2 years the battery will not hold a charge. I contacted the battery supplier, Cell Energy Inc for warranty. They said the warranty was expired that I had purchased a used battery. I just about lost it as I purchased a NEW battery. I am not sure how Cell Energy pulled that off however I was denied warranty. I went to Optima in Colorado and all I received was a sorry note on my email. I can not believe that you can pay 120 dollars, in 2007, for a new battery, be scammed by the battery supplier by them giving you a used battery, be denied warranty from the battery dealer and Optima Manufacturing, and still have the gahl to sell them as premium batteries. Well I guess I can believe it as I am the dummy that bought one. If you are looking to buy an Optima, be sure it is a NEW battery, from a reputable battery dealer. I have not been taken very often, but Cell Energy Inc in Sacramento, CA really stuck it to me. And Optima Battery Manufacturing did not stand up for their product.
