So I was curious as to who runs the Optima batteries and which one? I have owned a red top but killed it by over charging it. I have seen the yellow tops and see they cost more than the reds. According to the site, the yellow is more ideal if you are like Ivan and have a ton of accessories. There is a guy selling a new yellow top for $150 that I have thought about getting. Thoughts??

Unless you intend to go inverted I have never really seen the advantage of the Optima. A Group 24/27 deep cycle from Costco with a decent warranty is around half the price of the Optima.

Just my thoughts......

RED top here also. Never had a problem with it and even after draining it all the way to nothing at Havafew, once jumped and charged while driving it's back to tip top shape! :cool:
