Product Description

Product Packaging:Standard Packaging

Optima D35 YellowTop battery provides the extra performance and deep-cycling capability that your vehicle demands if it has a lot of accessories like running lights, high-performance stereo/AV system, winches, or hydraulics. The unique SpiralCell design provides a strong and clean power source, ensuring the safety of you, your family and the environment. The Optima battery is ideal for seasonal use because of its very low self-discharge rate. That means you can store your seasonal vehicles all winter without regular charging and still spring out of the starting block when winter is over.

This will be a mixed review of sorts.

I bought an Optima SC35DA Yellow Top directly from Amazon in August of 2009 and it worked fine until March of 2011. The plastic around the negative battery post just split with gas and gel oozing out.

I did not think there was any problem because this Optima battery comes with a three year full replacement warranty.

Now the warranty merry go round started.

I called Amazon and I was told to call Optima, Optima told me they would not warranty the battery because Amazon is not an authorized reseller, so back to Amazon, then back to Optima and so on.

The final result is that Amazon wound up giving me a full refund of the purchase price of the battery. I would rather of had a new battery but I got tired of the BS and aggravation and then I did what others did, I went to a local discount store and bought a cheap battery.

What is the point of spending $174.00 on what is supposed to be the best battery only to have it fail very early in its life cycle and then have to argue over getting it replaced?

The Optima battery worked for less than two years. So why spend the money on one when you can buy a Wal-Mart special for less than half the price, get it replaced locally or just throw it out and buy a new one.

I do have to thank Amazon for finally giving me the refund but there was too much aggravation involved. From all of the complaints I have read about the lack of a warranty when the Optima Battery is bought from Amazon, you would think Amazon would stop selling it.

This is exactly why I gave it only one star.

I can only recommend that no one should by any Optima Battery Product from Amazon unless they are fully aware that there is no warranty at all.

Wow! I am both relieved and impressed. I just purchased two of these batteries. After reading previous horror stories about damaged/no packaging I have to admit I was hesitant. I have had other problems with Amazon.com in the past. I just couldn't resist the price here, and with free shipping it sealed the deal. I guess whoever does the shipping here got the message about poor/damaged packaging. Mine were both delivered undamaged by UPS(this is an extraordinary occasion), and to my surprise the boxes were designed like tanks. Extra thick cardboard boxes with an entire lining of corrugated cardboard reinforcement all the way around the battery. The batteries inside were in perfect condition!!! A+ job here by Amazon.com!!! BTW shipping was also lighting fast....I ordered on Sat and batteries arrived on Tues.

If I could give zero stars I would... I know its cheaper here, but this battery just died after 6 months of normal use. Amazon will not stand behind this product and will not accept returns. Optima will also not warranty from an unauthorized seller. Funny, they left that off the listing for this battery. I learned my lesson, so hopefully everyone reading this will learn theirs too without the loss of $$. Unacceptable business practice in my opinion. FAIL.

I was a bit skeptical about ordering an Optima off here simply because Amazon doesn't accept returns on them (understandably). However, after paying over $210 at my local Napa store for the WRONG BATTERY (Asked for a 35 and the kid sold me a 25), I returned my first Optima to Napa and proceeded to buy this one from amazon. It arrived two days later in a box that could protect pretty much anything (see images I added). After installation, this battery has surpassed my expectations. Strong start every time, doesn't drain fast at all, and my headlights also don't dim nearly as bad as they did previously with an AC Delco battery. I give this battery an A+ for quality and performance, and strongly recommend it. I also give amazon an A+ on price and shipping, and I have to give credit to the shippers who protected this thing like it was a baby so i could receive a perfectly brand new awesome Optima YellowTop!

I bought this because my 2004 honda pilot factory battery was on its last leg. I always have prefered optima batteries because the yellow and blue top versions Optima Batteries 8052-161 D31M BlueTop Dual Purpose Battery can be DEEP discharged without damage. In a conventional flooded acid battery after 10 dead events you are going to the parts store because you have ruined your battery. Same goes to a lesser extent with the optima red top - they are strictly a starting battery.

In my case I leave accessories on 24x7 like my escort radar detector. It's to ensure that the gps data is up to date and to keep the microwave components warm so when I leave in the early morning they are on frequency and yield accurate measurements.

The yellow top is a cross between the deep cycle marine blue top and the starting red top. It has plenty of CCA's to turn over the engine the next day, plus it is not damaged by being drained. I do keep my yellow top "topped off" with a ctek charger CTEK Multi US 7002 12V Battery Charger whenever possible, but the battery holds its own even without ac charging.

Yes, Optima cells are expensive, and that is their one and only downside. Mine came with adapters to make it fit my vehicle like a factory cell. I get more years out of an optima vs. an interstate by quite a bit, so there is a value proposition as well. Just not being stranded from headlights left on is a great feature!
