Optima Batteries

R&J Batteries – the Number-One Supplier of OPTIMA Batteries in Australia

The OPTIMA range features a series of colour-coded high-performance AGM batteries that deliver pure power in the form of application-specific batteries. The RED, YELLOW and BLUE top batteries cater for Automotive, Deep cycle and Marine applications respectively.

Each colour is structurally designed to provide the application with the most power for the longest period of time. The unique casing design of each specific battery enhances the state-of-the-art Spiralcell Technology®.

Spiralcell Technology® allows for more tightly compressed cells within the battery, giving it superior vibration resistance and extending the battery’s life. Each model is 99.99% pure lead and features solid cast inter-cell connections for increased durability and maximum plate height.

All these features allow the battery to live up to twice as long as traditional batteries.

The OPTIMA Battery Suppliers Offering Specialised Products to Suit Your Needs

The original and the best; OPTIMA’s pioneering Spiralcell Technology® has helped shape the current and future of the high-performance battery market. As the first manufacturer to develop maintenance-free sealed lead-acid batteries in the 1970s and originators of the efficient AGM design now used by many luxury car-makers worldwide. OPTIMA’s proven range was a natural choice for R&J Batteries and we are proud to be endorsed by OPTIMA as a preferred nation-wide distributor of their cutting-edge automotive, marine and deep cycle batteries.


Every OPTIMA Battery Design Excels its Dedicated Application

Their colour-coded casing compliments OPTIMA's signature “Six-Pack” shaped design, with each different colour signifying the battery’s intended usage. OPTIMA REDTOP® batteries feature tightly-packed cylindrical cells with solid cast connectors and AGM separators for supreme vibration protection. The highly efficient twin-plate design delivers phenomenal cranking power, making the REDTOP® ideal for serious engine-starting applications including in high-performance street cars, as a hot rod battery and with diesel engines for commercial or industrial use.


The YELLOW TOP® OPTIMA Deep Cycle battery features thicker, spiral-wound high-density plates for durable, sustained power delivery lasting hundreds of cycles without losing capacity. The OPTIMA YELLOW TOP®s unique design delivers an added bonus in the form of superior high-rate cranking power, something not normally present in conventional deep cycle batteries due to the limitations of the flat-plate design. As a premium supplier in the industry, R&J Batteries recommends YELLOW TOP® batteries for not only deep cycle power but also starting applications demanding utmost reliability including emergency services vehicles, road transport and agricultural machinery.


An obvious colour choice for marine applications, the OPTIMA BLUE TOP® is available as a marine starting battery or marine dual-purpose starting & cycling battery. Like all OPTIMA AGM technology, the BLUE TOP® is not only extremely robust but is also very safe by design, being highly resistant to vibration, short-circuit, leakage, corrosion and explosion – more good reasons to demand OPTIMA batteries for ultimate peace-of-mind. The BLUE TOP® range of OPTIMA batteries are a natural choice for a host of different applications including camper trailers and RVs, four-wheel drive winching and accessory power, portable fridges, dual-battery installations and of course boats of all sizes.
