Optima Red Top Starting Battery

Product Code EG- VOR50L

OPTIMA® Red Top High powered, sealed lead acid, engine starting battery.

 

OPTIMA RedTop™ batteries are designed for short term high current applications such as starting engines, and short high amp uses of a winch motor.  They do not like to be "deep cycled" (like ALL automotive starter batteries) however the Red Top battery with its SpiralCell Lead Plate Technology, will suffer much less from the occasional deep discharge such as leaving your lights on or winching until the battery dies.  Because of the fact that SpiralCell technology can store more energy for a given sized battery these types of battery are ideal for use in offroad vehicles where reduced weight is important because a much larger "conventional" battery would need to be used in place of an OPTIMA to give the same starting current capability.

They are excellent at delivering very high starting currents in the most extreme of conditions. They suffer less damage from deep discharge, long term storage, and vibration than any conventional battery.



OPTIMA SpiralCell Technology has some real advantages over conventional batteries.
  • 1.5 - 2 times longer life than traditional batteries
  • Optimal power for starting regardless of temperature
  • Extreme vibration resistance
  • Long Storage times without damage or discharge
  • Non spill able - even upside down
  • Can be fitted and used in any position
  • Maintenance free
  • More starting power in a smaller package than conventional batteries
  • Less deterioration due to deep discharge than conventional batteries
  • More "cycles" before aging than conventional batteries
  • Can be used in extreme temperatures
  • Faster charging is possible compared with conventional batteries

OPTIMA delivers high current regardless of temperature. The OPTIMA delivers no less than 800 AMPS at -18 degrees C and as much as 1,100 AMPS at warmer temperatures! In addition, Optima will absorb nearly 100% of the recharge current from alternators and battery chargers.

The Optima will consistently deliver 1,100 cranking amps for 25 to 30 seconds. At only 17 KG this is comparable to batteries 4 times its size and weight.

SEALED, VIBRATION RESISTANT, AND LEAK PROOF EVEN WHEN BROKEN!

In an OPTIMA battery, the lead plates and separator are wound and tightly compressed into a cell tube so they can't move, shed, or break, even in severe shock and vibration applications. In independent SAE tests, the OPTIMA kept working after being subjected to vibrations up to 5G for 12 hours. As in all AGM TECHNOLOGY BATTERIES, there is no "free acid" that can leak out or spill and the OPTIMA can be operated effectively in any position -- even upside down -- without any risk of leaking and because it is sealed, no corrosion can form on the posts, connectors, or cables.
