Default Re: Optima battery will only chug to 50%

I am assuming you mean "bring it to full charge".

How are you measuring the batteries state of charge? Since it's an Optima, you can't stick a hygrometer in it. Are you measuring the voltage with a good meter, or just relying on the meter on the charger? Does the battery function well? Maybe there is no problem if it does what it should. I am on my third Optima, and they all went well over 10 years, so yours should still be good.
