The Yellow Top automotive battery has a very low discharge rate, which makes it ideal for seasonal use. Now you can store your seasonal vehicles all winter and don’t have to worry about charging the battery, or not being able to start the vehicle when winter is over.
The high quality, durability and performance have been proved since the early 1990’s. With the latest technology, this automotive battery offers the ultimate experience for professional and enthusiasts. Critical tolerances, temperatures, humidity and automated processes are maintained and constantly monitored. This car battery is filled with tightly coiled rolls, so this ingenious design protects the lead from vibration and keeps the batteries 100% maintenance free. Plus, off-road enthusiasts can explore the unknown without worry since the battery allows no leaking. With all these performance details in mind, the manufacturers describe the Optima batteries as ‘the highest quality and best performing spiral-wound batteries’. Their products have a remarkable 40-year history of technological innovation and engineering, which results in the best auto battery brand.
The Optima 8042-218 D75/25 YellowTop Battery is to be used when electrical loads are higher than average, or when the discharge cycle is more than typical engine starting, such as vehicles with multiple electronic accessories and vehicles without alternators (also including vehicles with power sliding doors and DVD player). Here are some examples: racing vehicles without a charging system, dedicated drag racers, diesel powered vehicles with aftermarket electronics and vehicles with inverts, winches or other accessories.
In conclusion, the YellowTop dual-purpose battery is designed for both highway ready vehicles and recreational vehicles, providing high cranking ability and deep cycle function. It will offer enough power to keep you going in the toughest conditions, while the spill-proof casing helps make them resistant to vibration and damage. What more do you need?
