OPTIMA BATTERIES are like NO other!

Inside the unique shell of the OPTIMA battery is an equally unique -- and superior design. Unlike traditional batteries, which use thick lead plates suspended in a pool of acid, OPTIMA batteries feature two long, thin layers of high purity lead precisely wound into tight spiral cells, with an absorbent glass mat in between the lead coils to hold the electrolyte solution.

The revolutionary Spiralcell design allows for more power and increased energy, resulting in quick, reliable starts even in extreme conditions of temperature, shock, and duty cycle. Because OPTIMA is the only battery with Spiralcell construction, no other battery comes close to matching OPTIMA's performance and reliability.
