Reviving old batteries can be fun. We’ve tried all sorts of methods in the past on this battery without any luck. With the new Optima Digital 1200 we brought this dead duck doorstop back to life from 3 volts to 13.3 volts in a matter of days. While we wouldn’t trust the battery out on the road (we think it’s about 15 years old), it is fine for starting rides in the back yard.
