After reading a number of reviews on these type of batteries I decided to take the plunge and go for it over the standard battery. They first appeared to be much more expensive HOWEVER I found a totally fantastic offer on Advanced Auto Parts which could not be passed up!

Ordered it online, along with an in cabin air filter, and regular engine air filter, and when I arrived at local AAP they had it loaded on the cart ready for me. A sincerely kind and knowledgable female employee (Georgia) took it all out to my car and installed battery for me.

This battery comes with a plastic platform / perch that raises the battery up high enough to reach the terminal leads. Using both risers made it too high so the smaller piece was removed and then it fit perfectly. Georgia sprayed contacts with sealant and took old battery away for me, also issuing me a $5.00 core removal advance to spend on other store items. Superb customer service and friendly environment will surely bring me back to this location again. As far as battery - its live and kicking just perfect!

Too early to tell regarding longevity. The power is good though. I like the added tray for adjusting the height. It is shorter than the original, so that was needed in order to get the hold down to tighten up.

The removable handle is great for carrying and installing. Nice that the handle can be so easily removed after installation.

The worst thing so far is that the negative battery terminal is 'too small'. It is NOT a perfect fit for my vehicle.

I had to run back to the store to buy a shim to take up the slack and get a good, tight connection.

Too expensive. I would not have bought it if not for the 20% off sale.

I clicked 'yes', would recommend, but 'only' if you are willing to tinker a lot to get the connection tight. If not, this battery will aggravate you.

Bought one in 2010 and it never failed even in below freezing temperature. It failed for the first time a couple days ago and it was because it just had no charged. Bought a new one and engine turns on effortlessly. Will keep buying again

          Comments about OPTIMA Batteries RedTop Starting Battery, Group Size 25, 720 CCA:

          I can not give an official opinion due to the fact I just recently installed the battery. I have owned it for about 3 weeks and received an email I should write a review. So far it's doing the job. Right now its being used in a daily driven car. Installing it was ok. The OEM battery hold down was a bit too large and the nut for the hold down stud would bottom out on the treads given. Instead of cutting the stud shorter I just used a Tap&Die set to increase the amount of treads I can use. Next was the voltage measure across from the battery terminals. It was sitting @ 12.42 Volts. The Optima Battery website claims they should be in the range 12.6V - 12.8V (Red Top Battery) fully charged. Either the battery was used before or the cells have slightly degraded from sitting or both. Besides the voltage and hold down issue, I can say the amperage given out is noticeable. During cranking the starter picks up quicker and starts within 1 second. I wish I had a battery load test machine to see exactly how much this battery is truly putting out. So for now it's getting a 4-star rating. Pros: It's smaller than the factory battery and have more amperage than the factory battery. Cons: Questionable voltage level (sorry I'm pretty OCD with these stuff)

                No. That is more of the blue top or yellow top Optima batteries.

              • A:

                No - Starting battery. Use yellow top Optima for deep cycle service, blue top for marine service.
