OPTIMA BATTERY SELECTION GUIDE
Optima's RedTop batteries are an excellent replacement for your starter battery, giving you superior performance and longevity that far exceed standard batteries. 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 plase refer to: "Auto Accessory Loads."
Auto Accessory Loads
Optima deep cycle batteries, YellowTop and BlueTop batteries, are designed to withstand heavy or prolonged current draws. Examples of accessories that create current heavy draw would be car audio, car audio, special lighting, power inverters and electro-hydraulics. This can also occur if a battery sits unsued for a long period of time before recharging. Additionally, 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 applications that require a heavy current draw.
Optima 12 volt and 6 volt batteries is the ideal for use in antique/classic autos. The reason is that Optima batteries have a low self-discharge rate, which allow it to 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 starting battery.
Car Audio Systems
