    Everlasting Batteries

    These are the second set of batteries I have used in my vehicle. The original batteries lasted about 6 years before the cold cranking cells were weakening during cold whether starts. The installation was simple. I would recommend this product.

    Pros: Additional Mounting Hardware

    Cons: NONE

    Worth the price

    I have had this battery on my Jeep Wragler for 9 years, and it never let me down. With all the extra lights and gear added to my Jeep, I needed a battery that would handle the load and last.
    For twice the life of a regular lead/acid battery, I got a battery that only cost 50% more.
    When it started showing lag, I got a new one of the same type. Its worth the money, if you have it...not sure why the other reviews are bad, but I have seen more pissed off people leave reviews than satisfied ones. Just the nature of the beast. Bottom line, this is a great battery for the money, that lasts twice as long as the competiton.

    Pros: Long Life, sealed, no need to service

    Cons: Heavy

    Not Worth the Initial Cost

    2 of 2 people found this helpful

    Disappointed in this battery for two reasons. The initial cost is very high compared to conventional
    lead - acid batteries and the life of the battery is much shorter. My battery failed very suddenly
    after less than five years of use and load testing revealed it would not longer hold a charge.
    I bought this battery because I thought it would last up to 2X longer, as they claim, than a conventional battery and thought the higher price justified the life expectancy. Don't believe it!
    I can not recommend this battery. Not worth the premium price!

    Pros: Sealed, never needs water, high cold start power

    Cons: High initial cost, short useable life, design makes for difficult installation in battery trays using bottom edge clamp

    Will never purchase another Optima again!

    1 of 1 people found this helpful

    Not worth the money - life expectancy is short, below average, and subpar compared to my experience with conventional batteries. I was burnt once upon purchasing a red top for a 79 Bronco and experienced a failure within the first year. I attributed the failure to draining battery down and using improper charging techniques. I then, chose to give Optima another shot with my 04 Rubicon. Battery would discharge after sitting for extended periods. I invested in an Optima battery charger and reconditioned the battery. After having the redtop for a year, I traded up to a 2014 Rubicon unlimited and swapped the battery into the new (to family) vehicle. The battery, without warning, left me stranded requiring a tow and dealer service. Mind you, the battery is less than 2 1/2 years old while seeing normal use in a relatively new and well maintained vehicle electrical system. I attempted to charge and recondition the battery two times with the Optima charger and it will not hold a load and will simply click and discharge 25-30% upon trying to activate the starter and then require another charge and recondition. Why would anyone spend for premium for a product the has a lesser life than cheaper, conventional batteries? I, for one, will NEVER purchase another Optima battery ever again!

    Cons: Second instance in which the battery didn't last for 3 years - I even have an Optima charger, unable to bring battery back to life- VERY disappointed
