OPTIMA Batteries: The battery like NO other! 

Inside the unique shell of the OPTIMA battery is a radically superior internal design. The structure of conventional batteries lead plates hanging in pools of acid requires those lead plates to provide their own structural support. To accomplish this, the lead is diluted with high percentages of inert stiffening metals that rob those conventional batteries of performance.

The unique engineering concept of the OPTIMA battery uses long thin layers of lead wound into tight spiral cells. Because they're tightly supported on all sides by high strength cylindrical cell casings, the lead ribbons of the OPTIMA battery aren't required to provide structural strength, so they can be made from high-purity, high-performance lead. This translates into dramatically lower internal resistance and higher output at temperature extremes. OPTIMA batteries can be fully recharged in about an hour, twice as fast as conventional batteries. They also can sit unused four times longer than other batteries, losing less than half a volt in over 6 months of nonuse.

An absorbent glass mat, alternating with the layers of lead, holds electrolyte in contact with the OPTIMA batteries greater lead surface area. This laminated construction provides far more active surface area in the OPTIMA battery. It also supports a thicker layer of plate paste, for prolonged service life typically half again to twice the life of conventional batteries. This technology is called "AGM" for "Absorbed Glass Mat" and it is a major advance in battery design.

OPTIMA BATERIES revolutionary Spiralcell® design produces more power and increased energy, resulting in fast, reliable starts even in extreme conditions. Because OPTIMA is the only battery with Spiralcell construction, no other battery offers OPTIMA batteries combination of performance and reliability in land and marine applications. OPTIMA BATTERIES deliver power!

Thanks for the excellent service, fast shipping, and a great product. I recently ordered an Optima Yellow Top Battery and am very pleased with the whole experience. The battery arrived just three business days after being ordered. It was in perfect condition! You also have very competitive, consumer friendly pricing. The same battery would have cost me almost $50 more to buy it from other places. – Mike Varda, Osceola IN

I'm buying this Optima battery to replace one I've had in continuous service for nine years. I had it in three vehicles during that time and it outlasted two of the vehicles. The Optima is an incredible product! William Crescenzo, Kansas City MO

Optima batteries don't require a battery box for acid containment because they don't leak.

Table Notes:
1
Amp Hours = Amp output sustainable for 20 hours before dropping to 10.5 volt recharge level, multiplied by 20. More explanation here.

2At all temperatures, Optima® batteries can discharge far higher amperage during the first critical seconds of demand compared to conventional batteries. In difficult conditions, this provides the rapid spin required to start engines quickly when conventional batteries with equal or greater CA or CCA merely crank without firing engine.
3
Reserve Minutes = number of minutes battery will maintain 25 amps output before dropping to 10.5 volts.
More explanation here. 


Recharge when batteries drop to 10.5 volt state of charge (or before.) Note: Optima batteries will never develop capacity-robbing "charge memory."

Fantastic price. Excellent communication, and the battery only took 3 work days to receive. I will use you for future purchases. Mark Canning, Copperas Cove, TX

Thanks for the fast shipping & personal attention. Four of our five vehicles now have Optima's. Two of my trucks are retired military and have two-battery, 24-volt systems. One already has dual Optima's, the other will soon. Three more batteries to go and I'll be fully converted! Planning my next order! Hank Grubbs, Clearwater, Florida

Front: D34M


OPTIMA Yellow Top and OPTIMA Blue Top battery models are the power source of choice for deep-cycle power needs. Compared to conventional batteries, voltage output from an Optima battery is more uniform across the discharge curve, more deep cycles are tolerated, and they can be mounted in any position with zero corrosion and zero leaks. They recharge faster than conventional batteries, and typically deliver 1.5 - 2x the service life. Yellow Top Optima Batteries and Blue Top Optima batteries also offer excellent performance as starter batteries for dual-purpose applications. Call us to order the premium power source for heavy cycling applications. With free shipping and no handling fees, prices quoted are your total delivered cost!**

Common Deep Cycle Applications:
Performance audio
Trolling motors
Portable lighting
Winches
Inverter power
Security system backup
Sump pump backup
RV/Camping power



Note: Performance between models D34/78, D34, and D34M is identical. The difference between between those batteries is the post style.
Performance between models D31T, D31A and D31M is identical. The difference between those batteries is the post style.
Optima Blue Top batteries are colored blue for marine battery applications but work equally well in non-marine uses.

 
After just a few hours on the water with my previous battery, I had to keep cutting the speed on my trolling motor just to keep going. Then after charging all night it still wouldn’t be fully charged the next morning when I wanted to go out. I got an Optima Blue Top and it was still running after six hours, I never had to cut speed. I put the battery on charge and checked it after a couple of hours, and it was already fully recharged. I came in, got online and ordered an Optima cranking battery too. This is now the only battery I’ll ever use, you have a customer for life. I got each battery just three days after I ordered them, too. Thanks for a great product! Darryl Levingston, Hemphill TX

Thanks for a flawless Internet transaction. I ordered my Optimas on Monday. I immediately received an e-mail confirmation, then a tracking number. This morning (Wednesday) the UPS driver carried my new batteries into my garage. A quick check showed the batteries were at full charge. Thank you for the perfect deal... great product, fast accurate delivery, and very competitive prices, from a trustworthy company. – Rick W.

As an OEM manufacturer, I need to use the components that satisfy my customers. We use Optima because our customers demand them. They're the best. Jerry Krzeminski, Magna Industries
