Overkill, but my old car starts right away now!

Optima did not have a selection option for a 1957 Alfa Romeo, so I went with one for a 1957 Corvette. Knew it would be more cranking amps than required, but I am very happy with the results. The engine cranks very fast and is running within 3 seconds from cold, 1 second if warm. With my old plate type battery it cranked slowly and took awhile to start.

the best battery made

This is my second yellow top. It's really hard to get the full life out of battery's living here in Arizona. The summer really kills them. But I will only have the optima batteries in my vehicles.

too early to know.

Any battery better work well with an ownership of only one month, after I put on a wench and after four years I have an opinion.

Happy with the Optima battery, but

I did not receive the Group 65 mounting adapters. I have called twice about them and am still waiting for them. The techs were polite, but did not seem to know what I was talking about.

Great battery

I have bought Optmia batteries in the past from local dealers. Now that I`ve found Auto Anything I`ll be buying from them. Good job guys.

Professional grade

On all the offroad forums, you hear folks talking about the benefits of the Yellow Top. I'm not a serious offroader, per se, but I am planning a trip in the next few days. My stock, lead acid battery was prone to some acid sloshing up and out which had begun corroding the battery hold down. It was also too weak to power a winch, not enough CCA. That's where the Yellow Top is champ. I'm somewhere 750+ CCA and the AGM technology means it is spillproof. I got this one from AutoAnything as a secondary battery to mount in a toolbox with my dual battery charging system. I now run additonal auxilliary lights and an inverter off of this one. The deep cycle capability is clutch in this regards as it can be drained down and bounce back time and time again. This will be great for camping. I've done some basic tests, the real test is this weekend.

Need more power

I would've been happier to mount a second battery to my 2011 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited. But every inch under the hood is being used. If I could only have one battery I figured I would get the best I could find.
