Optima's Red Top (and reversed-post Orange Top) batteries are superior replacements
for your starter battery, offering performance and longevity that far exceed
conventional standards. Note: If your car or truck has accessories that
create heavy or prolonged current draw, or if the vehicle sits for very
long periods between uses, then see the following paragraph on "Auto
Accessory Loads." Otherwise, click for: Optima
Red Top Starting Batteries.
Optima deep cycle batteries (Yellow Top and Blue Top) are designed for applications
where current draw is heavy and/or prolonged, causing voltage to drop deeply
before recharging. Winches, car audio, special lighting, power inverters
and electro-hydraulics are examples of accessories that create heavy current
draw. Deep discharge also occurs if a battery sits unused for long periods
before recharging (modern electronic devices cause parasitic drain, and
all batteries also experience self-discharge over time.) Optima's deep cycle
batteries tolerate repeated deep discharging without premature failure and
have an exceptionally low self-discharge rate, making them ideal for such
applications. Click for information on all
Optima deep cycle battery models.
Optima 12 volt and 6 volt absorbed glass mat (AGM) batteries and antique/classic
autos are a match made in heaven. Optima's low self-discharge rate holds
a charge during long periods of nonuse during storage. The Optima's sealed
AGM design prevents acid leakage, and the fact that the Optima does not
off-gas in normal use means your valuable auto won't suffer the effects
of corrosive fumes. The Optima model 6V is the battery of choice for six
volt systems. Whether you need a 12 volt battery or a six volt battery,
check the dimensions available in your battery space and choose an Optima
deep cycle battery or Optima
Car Audio Systems
Car audio systems are major power users and the Optima deep cycle battery
is the premier car audio performance battery on the market. In addition
to superior longevity, shock resistance and their totally leak-proof, non-fuming
design, the Optima deep cycle battery has one special characteristic that
sets it apart from other batteries for car audio. Due to patented SpiralCell™
construction and the use of high purity lead, the Optima delivers incredibly
high peak amperage. That means your music doesn't get clipped, because your
amp gets the power it asks for, faster than any other battery can deliver.

recharge rate and high current storage. For really over-the-top trolling
motor power, use the new Optima D31M batteries. They can be connected in
parallel or in series for the voltage you need. The strongest Optima batteries
