The all-new ORANGETOP battery line relies on OPTIMA’s HYPERCORE LITHIUM technology and has multiple industry-first features that maximize performance and reliability, minimize weight and improve convenience
• Segment-first inter-battery communication to prevent uneven charging and discharging when multiple batteries are connected in a series
• Two models, one dual-purpose battery and one deep-cycle battery
• Both batteries feature Bluetooth connectivity that allows users to monitor their battery via the OPTIMA Batteries app
• NMEA 2000 connectors to allow marine users plug-and-play functionality
MILWAUKEE (Nov. 2, 2023) – OPTIMA Batteries, a leading Clarios brand, is proud to introduce its first-ever 12-volt lithium-ion battery tailored for marine and RV applications, using the cutting-edge HYPERCORE LITHIUM technology present in all ORANGETOP batteries. These new group 31 batteries are available as dual-purpose or deep-cycle models, with innovative features such as NMEA 2000 functionality, smartphone app-based Bluetooth connectivity and an impressive energy storage capacity surpassing a second-generation Toyota Prius hybrid battery.
The dual-purpose and deep-cycle ORANGETOP marine and RV batteries are fully compatible with OPTIMA’s new Digital 200+, 400+ and 1200+ battery chargers and performance maintainers. Both ORANGETOPS for marine and RV applications provide clear status and charging information through multicolored LED state-of-charge indicator lights.
These batteries introduce an industry-first feature allowing up to four parallel or in-series connections, facilitating inter-battery communication to eliminate the common issue of uneven charging and discharging observed in other batteries on the market.
OPTIMA’s patented CPR function, a standard feature in all ORANGETOP batteries, puts an end to dead batteries. This feature automatically detects parasitic energy draws, disconnecting the battery while retaining sufficient power to start the vehicle. An advanced microprocessor-controlled battery management system (BMS) automatically oversees and regulates all functions, providing a balanced cell state of charge for enhanced performance and a longer lifespan.
The introduction of the OPTIMA Batteries app empowers users to monitor real-time battery data, set alarms for abnormal voltage or temperature, and access essential information such as state of charge, battery and cell health, battery status, error logs and product manuals.
Continuing OPTIMA’s legacy of robust and dependable power, the ORANGETOP batteries possess an IP67 rating for dust and water intrusion resistance while maintaining exceptional vibration resistance. These batteries are available in two configurations: a dual-purpose model with 1,536-watt hours and a deep-cycle option with 1,920-watt hours of energy storage. These additions to the ORANGETOP battery line streamline the lithium battery ownership experience, ensuring optimal performance and longevity for seasonal marine and RV use. Both options are capable of powering a trolling motor or a small hunting cabin, and the NMEA 2000 connection enables seamless integration for marine users.
These batteries harness lithium iron phosphate technology combined with OPTIMA HYPERCORE technology to optimize low-temperature performance. They offer the benefits associated with other lithium batteries, such as reduced weight and increased efficiency, while exclusively delivering OPTIMA’s renowned safety, durability and performance standards for powersports batteries.About Kahn Media
