At the heart of every OPTIMA battery is a series of individual spiral-wound cells comprised of two pure (99.99%) lead plates coated in a precise coating of lead oxide. One coated plate is positive and the other is negative.
The unique manufacturing process of spiral winding continuous lead plates is far more precision-controlled and expensive than building traditional flat plate AGM batteries. Custom automated cell-winding machines are required to maintain the close tolerances required to maintain quality and performance. Critical tolerances, temperatures, humidity and automated processes are maintained and constantly monitored.
OPTIMA has built over 100 million individual spiral cells since the early 1990’s.
What's the difference between OPTIMA RedTop, YellowTop, and BlueTop Batteries?
For normal engine starting where an alternator immediately monitors the state of charge and provides energy to the battery whenever it is needed.
This would describe most stock vehicles, including: automotive and RV underhood starting, heavy equipment where starting is the primary function, and diesel vehicles without aftermarket electronics.
Use this when electrical loads are higher than average, or when the discharge cycle is more than typical engine starting, such as vehicles with multiple electronic accessories and vehicles without alternators. This can also include vehicles with a lot of factory electronics such as power sliding doors and a DVD player. Examples also include: racing vehicles without a charging system, dedicated drag racers, diesel powered vehicles with aftermarket electronics, and vehicles with inverters, winches, or other accessories.
The BlueTop starting battery (dark gray case) is to be used when a dedicated starting battery is required and it should never be used for cycling duty. Use a BlueTop starting battery for marine applications and RVs when the battery's only function is engine starting.
The dual purpose BlueTop (light gray case) can be used for both starting and deep cycling -- it is a true deep cycle battery with extremely high cranking power. Uses include: trolling motors, marine applications with heavy electrical accessories, and RVs.

The only down side to buying an item like this through Amazon is that you can't have it immediately. If you have the luxury of being able to wait a day or two before replacing your vehicle's starting battery, I doubt that you can find a better deal than buying an Optima through Amazon Prime.
My previous battery went pretty quickly from starting my engine just fine to not being able to start it, so there was very little warning. Fortunately I live, work, and dine in areas where there is always a place to park on a downhill slope sufficient to allow me to push-start my vehicle using only a gravity push. (It has a 5-speed manual transmission.)
I bought an emergency jump start battery as a backup to my gravity-based plan, but didn't have to use that. Amazon delivered the Optima battery on time, and it was close to fully charged. I left it on a 2-ampere trickle overnight to make sure it was topped off. Installation was simple, and my vehicle now starts strongly and dependably.
The Optima battery is a little lower in height than standard lead-acid batteries that fit my vehicle. The package I received included a height adapter to make it match the dimensions of a Group 24 or 27 battery, in case that is an issue. Also included are "wing" adapters to fit a Group 48 or Group 65 mount situation, and a Group 78 "puck" adapter. It's really a well-engineered package.
Amazon's compatibility check worked for me, but as a few others have advised you should go to Optima's Web site to make sure you have the most current (ha ha) information.
I installed this only 2 months ago in my '68 Goat. No float/maintenance charge and only crank it up every 2 weeks or so. An internal carburetor leak results in no fuel in the carb after 3 days; therefore, requiring about 15 seconds of cranking (and lots of pedal pushes) to start up, yet battery remains strong throughout.
This is a great battery as everyone knows by now. This only my 2nd one I have ever bought, because they have long lifespans. I put this one in my 2003 Ram 1500, that has the Off Road Package. Though it was a little too small for the battery tray in my truck, they provide adapters to make this battery fit in many vehicles. My truck had the upgraded battery when I ordered it from Dodge new, which was up from 500 amps to 700 amp. This battery though, even blows those numbers out of the water with 800 & 1000 respectively! I installed this along with a new Gladiator alternator and a new Gatorback serpentine belt and it all runs beautifully! I can't say enough about these batteries and have converted my whole family of gearheads over to the Optima line of batteries. Those people saying that these are overhyped, obviously either got that one in a thousand dud, or they think that batteries are indestructible and abused the heck out of them. Remember, there isn't a battery on earth that will not eventually die.. It was shipped to me in double box packaging, which very thick foam pieces holding it in place and arrived in perfect condition. You just can not beat Amazons price and ease of shopability with things like these. You go to Autozone and pay 185 for a junk battery that will maybe last one year, or you can buy this and just wait 2 or 3 days to have it.
Cons: Heavy? All batteries are heavy. Expensive? No one wants to pay two C-notes for a battery, but these are worth it.
Bottom line: why haven't you added this to your cart yet?
The first Optima RedTop went into my wife's Nissan Altima after her stock battery bit the dust. She took her car into the dealership for an oilchange a couple of weeks after I put it in. The head mechanic came out to meet her in the office when she went to pick up her car. I guess he had never ran into a RedTop, or at least a new one, before because he went on and on about it. He said that it was registering off the charts on their testing equipment. He even said that he would be buying RedTops for all of his vehicles from now on.
This RedTop went into my old beater 00 Ford Ranger. I only use the truck when I need to haul something so it doesn't gets cranked up much. Dead batteries were pretty common before but I dropped the RedTop in it. I haven't had to jump it once (6+ mo of ownership) even though I've used the truck less and it's cold.
I'm truly impressed with this battery and can not recommend it enough. It's cheaper on Amazon than any of the local auto shops, even with their gimmicky coupons or promos. This model came with a bunch of adapters to help with the fit. While I didn't need them, I appreciated the forethought.
