Ive jump started a friends optima using a battery charger set on 'jump start'. Didnt seem to hurt it at all. Do you still have a warranty on the battery? Mine has a 3 or 4 year warranty, something like that from the auto parts store. If anything happens to it or it just doesnt hold a charge, they replace it for free.

I won't hurt it buuuuuut...
There is a difference in the Yellow and Red Top though...
The Yellow is a deep cycle,.. it can be completely drained and recharged over and over. The Red one does not fair as well after having been drained completely. BTW, fully recharging one takes a long time.
FYI, per a Optima Rep.: It's a good idea to charge the battery once every 6 months, for about an hour. He sis to hook it up while vacuuming the car or such. Doing this, he told me he had one go 10 years.
