So after one of my optima blue tops got juiced after a long windy day sitting at the beach listening to the stereo died, it will no longer receive a charge. It basically stays at 3.0V's.

I am going to return it on warranty next week, but have only had the battery for two months... Has anyone had a similar experience? Any reason why something like this could happen or was the battery just crap to begin with?

I don't mean to bash optima, but on the real, last longer than two months, right?

Could have been a bad battery from the start. i run Kinetik and I had a defective one within a couple of weeks. Seemed fine at first but after I put it to the test it wouldnt take a charge, prolly defective out the box.... optimas are good batteries and you should be fine after it's replaced....
