OPTIMA is like no other battery in the world. The unique SpiralCell design offers the most advanced technology and provides a strong and clean power source that far surpasses any of todays filled lead-acid batteries. Unlike traditional lead acid batteries that use stacks of thick lead plates suspended in a reservoir of acid, OPTIMA batteries feature two long pure lead-tin plates wound into a tight spiral, separated by an absorbent glass-mat (AGM). The sponge-like AGM holds the electrolyte in place between the plates.
Optima SPIRALCELL® TECHNOLOGY benefits:
- 2 to 4 times longer life
- 3 to 4 times longer storage time (shelf life)
- No corrosion to terminals, cables, & battery trays.
- Zero maintenance, sealed design eliminates water loss. Greatly reduced risk of a battery explosion
- Fifteen times more vibration resistant
- Highest power density (more power per pound)
- Can be recharged rapidly
- Non spillable – can be mounted in any orientation.
- Flat discharge profile (Higher average voltage during discharge provides longer run time over a larger portion of battery capacity)
