Optima Yellow Top

Great battery, very expensive but worth its weight it gold. Installs just like any other, but a difference that is noticed!

I got this battery for the winch and other various electrical devices. I use the side posts for the jeep's main cables. I attached some marine terminals to the top posts for the electrical accessories ie. winch, lights, etc. So far this battery is great but I have only had it for couple months.

Helps power off road lights, winch, amp,with subs and all the normal. Great battery where a normal gave out several times.

I got this battery after my AAA generic battery bit the dust. I had my 250watt RF amp and two 12" subs hooked up to it, and when I drove the Jeep every day, it worked fine. However, when I went out of the country for a few months, the engine wouldn't turn over at all.

I am very disappointed in this battery--it only lasted a year and I bought it to replace the crappy batteries I'd been getting from AAA that were lasting only 6 months b/c of the amp power...ridiculous!

always work no spilling and easy to install. looks good too when you pop the hood and they see the yellow top. its always cranked and never had any problems. many friends own them in their performance stereo cars and they always suggest them. its for if you draw alot of amps or drain your battery often from lights, radio, etc

If you drive on rough roads or choose not to use roads then this battery will hold up to the abuse. I had a duralast in my chevy that the top crack on because of offroading. Never again will I be stranded because of a battery. You can also run your stereo without having to leave your jeep running which saves on fuel costs.

I bought this battery to supplement my high output altenator so that my headlight would quit dimming from my stereo. Ever since I installed it I have had absolutely no problems with any of my lights or electrical. 3 year warranty, and heavy duty.
