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!

Ordered Optima 34 RedTop on-line, computer said "exact fit" for 2008 Ford Ranger, it wouldn't fit, took to store got credit; Ordered Optima 25 on-line,it fit but wouldn't crank engine. Took it to store, they tested & said battery was bad (so called new batt.)I was afraid to order on-line so the Latrobe store ordered one, got it & installed next day. So removing/reinstalling original battery several times, 3 trips to store(for something home delivery) 108 miles, and over 4hrs. aggravation, I'm not happy with Advance or Optima.

      I noticed my car struggling to start, and lights dimming because I have a sound system that runs a lot of power. This battery gave enough battery to my speakers, as well as my car

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

      Too early to tell regarding longevity. Starter cranks over effortlessly. I like the added tray for adjusting the height. It is shorter in height than the original, so this was needed in order to get the hold down bracket to tighten up.

      It is a bit expensive. I would not have bought it if not for the sale promotion.

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

      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

            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.
