Strengths:
The Optima YellowTop batteries always work great for me, even if I let my truck sit for several months. It always starts right up. I love that I don't have to worry about it leaking acid like a conventional battery.
Weaknesses:
It's an expensive battery. The rounded shape makes it not fit well in some battery trays.
Bottom Line:
The deep-cycle YellowTop is better for a 4x4 than a RedTop. A winch, lights, stereo, electric fridge, and so on can drain and kill a non-deep-cycle battery. I have had the same YellowTop in my truck for over 7 years. The truck regularly sits for several months in 100 degree summer heat and temps that get into the 20s at night in winter.
