Notes

  1. The vehicle must have a properly working alternator, and should not have “aftermarket accessories” with amperage drain exceeding 10 amps.
  2. The vehicle must have a fully functional voltage regulated charging system. Use of accessories that prevent the charging system form maintaining the battery in a fully charged state will void the warranty and cause premature failure. For these applications, an Optima deep cycle battery is recommended for this combination of starting and heavy cycling.
  3. Red top batteries should only be used for hot rod / street rod / O/E applications where the system has a fully functional voltage regulated charging system. Red top batteries should not be used for off road/circle track aftermarket performance applications. The warranty is voided when a red top battery is used with out a fully functional voltage regulated charging system.

installed battery ,so far is preforming

September 20, 2014
I like the appearance of the battery and the quality of construction. also was impressed by the weight of the battery which means there are heavy plates inside to make up to 1ooo cold cranking amps. my truck has been remanufactured to like new condition so I needed a battery capable of turning a new engine. now I looking forward to a long service life.
Pros:
  • very good strength
Cons:
  • n.a. at present
Yes, I recommend this product.

Rugged, powerful, shockproof - perfect!

May 18, 2014
This particular Optima battery was purchased to replace a stock 6V battery in a 1946 Willys. Perfect! Almost double the cold cranking amps in a well built, almost indestructible case and no maintenance with the rolled mat cell technology. Superior heat resistance, vibration proof and charges easy with the original 6V generator. Should have upgraded a long time ago!
Pros:
  • Durable
  • Rugged
  • Compact
  • Powerful
Yes, I recommend this product.

Perfect for those tight places. Series it for great amps, six-volt for older cars. Place a gel-cell in any position and it works.
Pros:
  • Improves Performance
  • Easy To Install
Yes, I recommend this product.

Best deal around...Everyone overpriced

September 27, 2011
It's pathetic that we need to spend $150 on a 6 volt battery that is 1/2 the size of a 12 volt battery and twice as much...Speedway was best pricing and super fast shipping
Pros:
  • Easy To Install

Yes these batteries can be wired in series to create 12 volts.

Two of these Optima 6 volt batteries can be wired in series to provide 12 volts. Wiring in series means that the positive terminal of one battery is connected to the negative terminal of the other battery.

yes (wired in series is what I meant to say) it is fine and does not void warranty according to what Optima told me on the phone.
