The Optima YELLOWTOP® Battery is truly the Best of Both Worlds
With modern vehicles putting ever-increasing strain on their power supplies, manufacturers have realised the need to develop a more-efficient automotive battery design, capable of withstanding the multitude of varying demands that traditional car batteries were never designed to contend with. Constant “key-off” power usage, high-powered car stereos, electric seat heaters, etc. combine with advanced battery management systems including fast-rate charging, and fuel-saving measures including idle-stop-start, electric power steering and A/C to place the venerable car battery under enormous strain, enough to cause conventional car batteries to collapse prematurely in many instances.
The unique design of Optima YELLOWTOP® batteries provides the ideal solution for power-hungry cars and trucks with a host of performance advantages not found in conventional flooded lead-acid batteries.
The YELLOWTOP® is a true deep-cycle battery, but unlike other deep-cycle batteries the Optima has the distinct advantage of vastly improved recharge efficiency (up to 200% faster), highly desirable in modern high-tech vehicles to guard against flat batteries, especially in stop-start traffic or in ‘occasional use’ vehicles.
The extreme efficiency of Optima’s low-resistance spiral-cell design delivers very high cranking power, surpassing even most dedicated starting batteries. Even at low state of charge the YELLOWTOP® can easily start large-capacity, high horsepower engines reliably. Another very impressive feature by any standards, let alone from a genuine deep-cycle battery. The Optima YELLOWTOP® is one dual-purpose battery that really does deliver the best of both worlds – no-compromise starting and deep-cycle power whenever and where ever you need it.
