Demand more from your vehicle? Then get more from your battery. OPTIMA YellowTop batteries are made for the extremes. If you have an extreme vehicle, you expect high performance. Whether your vehicle is made to take the abuse of off-road driving or cranking out decibels, you need more from your battery. OPTIMA batteries with patented SPIRALCELL® Technology deliver that performance. The deep cycle characteristic of this technology coupled with its extreme resistance to vibration provides performance vehicles with the repetitive power they need in a spill-proof package.

If your vehicle has a lot of accessories like running lights, high-performance stereo/AV system, winches, or hydraulics, your vehicle demands more from its battery. OPTIMA YellowTOP batteries provide the extra performance and deep cycling capability that your vehicle demands.

Pros Dont have the words,but Awesome.
Cons None
Recommended yes

Comments: My alternator went out when i hit a mud hole with too much water. My xj stayed running, i winched out, ran all headlights and offroad lights, radio, all while the alternator was out. It took 2 hours to get home, this battery never let the lights dim. Best battery and only battery i'll ever own again.

Pros Holds great power with the winch.
Cons Expensive but you get what you pay for.
Recommended yes

Comments: The yellow top is a great deep cycle battery. Cant beat the side post hook up. And with running the CB works oustanding. If you have a winch and some electronics you cant go wrong with this one.

Pros Deep Cycle, gell cell
Cons questionable reliability, crappy warranty policy.
Recommended no

Comments: I drained one with a dome light, and it wouldn't hole a charge after that. Got a warranty replacement and haven't had a problem with it yet (going on 4 years now). I may have one of the last decent ones before the QC went to down the drain. I'm buying a Sears Die Hard when this one dies.

Pros Works when I need it to everytime

Comments: I must be lucky with all this bad hype about optima batteries being terrible, I have zero problems with mine and i dont have to worry about leaving my lights on for a few hours because it doesn't even phase it.

Pros I can leave my lights and stereo on and only have a low voltage start, if you get stuck and need some power this is a great battery.
Cons N/A
Recommended yes

Comments: I bought this battery mostly because of the dual purpose poles the battery. It's way easier to mount winches, extra lighting, an air compressor and all kinds of stuff without killing your battery and alternator.

Pros Dependability
Quality
Durability
Cons none
Recommended yes

Comments: I bought this after my stock battery died. I have had no issues with it whatsoever. I have had the radio playing with the Jeep turned off for hours at the time and it fired right up. I also have had to use my winch a few times and have not had any issues with that either. Def recommend this battery to anyone.

Cons only a 3 year warranty

Comments: I purchased my first yellow top for my F150 several years ago, always worked like a champ. When i got my CJ i went out and bought another yellow top optima. Still no complaints, and now the warranty is 3 years instead of only 1.
