Rated 4 out of 5 by Landoae86 My pros and cons of this battery
Since I have purchased this battery before for my previous vehicle, I was happy with its performance so I decided to get it again. This time i purchased it to put it on my 1978 corolla that is only driven to car shows. During the winter it lost its charge in a week. By the time the spring time came that I was going to drive my car it wouldn't crank and the battery was swollen on the top part. I took it back to PepBoys and they switched it for a new one. So far its working great. The great thing about it is that they have a three year warranty. I will connect it to a battery charger this winter to prevent the same issue.

Rated 4 out of 5 by majormouse technology of AGM
Many people think the AGM batteries are best for mounting location benefits. Although that is a benefit because they are non spillable, it is more about the way AGM batteries give up or deliver the energy stored within. The surface area of the Optima Red Top spiral technology is enormous compared to a traditional "wet" lead acid battery.The red top optima is able to receive a charge quickly too. The daily driver will benefit from the quick recharge and stable power delivery of this battery. Texas heat is brutal and the AGM works better than lead-acid.
The price seems high until compared to benefits and the fact that the lead inside is purer. AGMs don't have to support hanging from tabs in a liquid like traditional plates do, those consist of alloys which reduces the reaction.
Phone chargers, car audio, and other accessories will benefit from consistent stable power delivery. The 34/78 posts offer multi-purpose connections for fuse blocks or jumper cables without the hassle of trying to get them to stay on the little side post terminals.

Rated 5 out of 5 by retiredairforcepilot Best battery and best price on the market
I have used Optima a Redtop Battery for my off road Jeep for years, always thought they were the best. Never even thought about an Optima for my work truck. This time I was checking around for a replacement for my truck and looked at the Optima. Liked what I saw on reviews and then in checking with
suppliers, I found that Pep Boys were offering 30% of their initial price. That was even more than 30% lower than any other parts place. Great product and outstanding price.

Rated 3 out of 5 by RySlats Put in truck and it started, Great
Old battery was losing its charge put this one in and the truck started up, and it's continuing to start every time. Could have came with better vehicle specific installation instructions, comes with every adapter for all kinds of vehicles, and couple options for Ford.
