Optima Adds To Contingency Postings

OPTIMA® Batteries, a worldwide leader in high-performance batteries, is pleased to announce an extension of its partnership with the National Hot Rod Association (NHRA) Contingency Program, which will now include the OPTIMA Chargers Digital 1200 12V Performance Battery Charger. Since 2010, racers have been rewarded for implementing OPTIMA Batteries into their race vehicles. OPTIMA has long been the battery of choice for many automotive enthusiasts looking for better power, longer life and greater resistance to the use and abuse of extreme applications. Racers will be excited to learn that the OPTIMA Chargers Digital 1200 12V Performance Battery Charger is now also covered as part of this contingency program.

“Many NHRA racers already incorporate OPTIMA Batteries into their vehicles,” says Cam Douglass, director of product development and marketing for OPTIMA Batteries. “We’re excited for them to experience the benefits of the OPTIMA Chargers Digital 1200 12V Performance Battery Charger as it will enhance the performance of their battery, but also extend battery life.”

The OPTIMA Chargers Digital 1200 12V Performance Battery Charger enhances the performance of OPTIMA and other AGM batteries, recovers deeply discharged batteries and extends battery life. It also features a full text LCD display for charging, maintaining and fault mode indication. With a gauge that displays battery charging and fill rate with charger mode and fault messages, this new product offers one of the best user interfaces on the market. The Digital 1200 is optimized when used with high-performance AGM batteries but has enhanced charging capabilities that can also be used with all traditional types of automotive batteries.
