With a 40-year history of technological innovation and engineering OPTIMA products offer unstoppable power for extreme enthusiasts and others who require the ultimate power source.
Trucks with winches, vehicles with high-demand electronics and audio systems, commercial vehicles and heavy equipment can all rely on this battery to provide ultimate starting and deep-cycle power. It also functions well as a forklift battery, tractor battery, or for other applications.
- Deep-cycle and cranking power
- Up to 3x longer life and maintenance-free

- Spillproof, mountable in virtually any position
- Faster recharging and 300+ discharge/recharge cycles
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. No one knows how to build the highest quality and best performing spiral-wound batteries better than OPTIMA.
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.

Top Customer Reviews
1. Amazon only accepts returns for up to 30 days after the item was purchased. After 30 days, the customer will be referred to the manufacturer of the item.
2. Optima refers all online purchases back to the original retailer. The full warranty cannot be honored through Optima unless the battery was purchased from one of Optima's authorized online retailers. The authorized retailers are shown on Optima's site; Amazon is not one of them.
3. Optima is unable to honor any warranty for batteries purchased through Amazon because Optima is unaware of the condition of the batteries, the shipping procedures, how long the batteries have been in a warehouse, etc.
The Optima Yellow Top series are arguably some of the best auto batteries currently on the market, but the money saved by buying from Amazon clearly isn't worth the almost nonexistent warranty.
Yes $100 not $50.
You have to keep your eyes open for the deals.
If for some reason this new optima takes a crap within a year (which is highly unlikely) I'm not out that much $. But if it lasts like others I have I will get minimum 5 years out of it.
For the other reviews saying that they contacted optima and optima is saying they don't know how amazon is getting there batteries. Ah optima sells pallets of batteries that are 6 months old and older. So optima is full of it.
I worked at the warehouse so Ive see it.
So far so good, fit well into the space a standard battery went. We will see how it holds up!
Would buy again
I'm in NY and the battery was shipped by truck cross country (I watched the tracking updates). It took about a week for it to arrive.
When I finally received it, I realized I was lucky. The battery was in good condition with no breaks or scratches on it. At the same time, it came in a simple cardboard box with some cushioning on top, but nothing on the bottom. This is a very heavy item and it's very easy to visualize the bottom of the battery getting damaged during a long truck ride as there is no protection whatsoever between the bottom of the battery and the 1/4 inch cardboard box it comes in.
I don't get it, sometimes they go overboard & package the most trivial of items in styrofoam and bubble wrap, and with this 50lb. item it's basically just covered in 1/4 inch of cardboard.
The battery itself seems fine- ...started my car up fine (although I can't comment on it over the long term just yet).
Amazon and Optima need to work on the warranty as it is confusing (or was when I ordered my battery) There was a question if Optima would back the battery up. Not a lawyer here but I did read an article where the courts have found that a manufacturer was not able to pick and chose the retailer on what warranty's they would support. If it is a question for you (and for the price it should be) get it in writing from either Amazon or Optima.
