whats the difference with the red top and the yellow top???
Red Top is a starter battery (turning over the engine)
Yellow Top is deep cycle (longer life between charges)
Difference is price!
i have a optima yellow top...bro i got mine installed for 150 even. i think thats the average price.
You payed $150 to have the battary installed? or $150 for the battary and install? Even so, why did you have someone install it for you? its only 2 wires.
The battery cost him $150. I'm sure he installed it himself. You gotta remember that working with high current batteries is dangerous, which is why you never place your hand on the car body while touch the red (+) terminal. Good way to electrocute yourself.
Its a safety precaution, which is why you can have somebody else do it.
