Tech Tips 1: What is the difference between a RedTop, YellowTop and BlueTop OPTIMA Battery?


Why does an OPTIMA battery last longer than other batteries?

The main reasons the OPTIMA battery has a longer life are:

There is no shedding of active paste material

The SpiralCell design immobilizes the plates preventing the active paste from working loose, which can cause plate to plate shorting

They utilize a high purity lead-tin grid

The grid material in OPTIMA batteries is more resistant to grid degradation - a type of internal corrosion that affects the plates inside a battery as it ages

The completely sealed design prevents loss of water which can lead to plate dry-out and failure
