Are OPTIMA Batteries Really Better?

Tanner Foust puts an OPTIMA battery to the test, by launching it from a trebuchet!

OPTIMA Batteries PowerPro Ambassador, Tanner Foust, uses a trebuchet to launch an OPTIMA YELLOWTOP battery, just to see if it could handle the abuse. The battery still held voltage and passed a load test after it crash-landed. It was then installed in OPTIMA Jim's big block-powered dually, which is started up with ease and handled a 700-mile summer drive from Arnold, Nebraska to Road America, in Elkhart Lake, Wisconsin.

We obviously don't recommend you try this at home with your battery, but it's nice to know if an OPTIMA does get into tough conditions, it can also get back out
