Optima Yellow Top Dual Power Battery YTU 4.2 (8014-254)

OPTIMA® YellowTop® is made to install and forget. No matter the conditions, be it dampness, heat, dirt or exposure to extremes in vibration or regular discharge, it is guaranteed to deliver uninterrupted power throughout the entire discharge cycle. The ability to hold a higher voltage during the discharge cycle makes it possible to utilise more of the stored power in the OPTIMA®, compared to ordinary batteries.

All of these benefits are due to OPTIMA’s® Spiralcell® Technology, which combines the advantages of a starting battery with those of a deep cycle battery. The YellowTop® handles many discharges as well as re-charges without losing significant capacity and is also ideal for seasonal use because of its very low self-discharge rate.


  • 2 to 4 times longer life
  • 3 to 4 times longer storage time (shelf life)
  • No corrosion to terminals, cables, & battery trays.

  • Non spillable – can be mounted in any orientation.

  • CCA (EN): 750 A
  • Length: 254mm
  • Width: 175mm
