2013 Dodge Dart Battery
- OPTIMA Batteries
- Birmingham, Alabama
The Dodge Dart had three different engine options in the 2013 model year, but the same battery works for all of them- the H6, which OPTIMA batteries offers in our DH6 YELLOWTOP. So why use an OPTIMA instead of a regular flooded lead-acid battery? OPTIMA batteries can last up to three times as long as a traditional flooded lead-acid battery and they are also sealed, so the chances of battery acid damaging your Dart are minimized.
The OPTIMA DH6 weighs just over 54 pounds and is conservatively rated at 72 Ah and 800 cold cranking amps, which is more than enough power to start even large V8s. So why does a Dodge Dart need such a big battery? Reserve capacity. Modern vehicles have more electrical demands than ever before and as a result, automakers have started using larger batteries in their vehicles, even if the engine doesn't need that much cranking power.
Vehicles that sit for extended periods of time, are used primarily on short drives or have significant electrical accessories, like car alarms or aftermarket stereos, all need as much reserve capacity from their battery as they can get. We'd invite you to compare the specifications of the OPTIMA DH6 YELLOWTOP with any other H6 (also known as a Group 48) battery that you might be considering. The external physical dimensions of H6/Group 48 batteries are all the same, so if someone else's battery doesn't weigh as much, because they aren't putting as much active material in the case or it doesn't offer the reserve capacity and cranking power of an OPTIMA DH6 YELLOWTOP, ask yourself if that is really a battery worth buying?
Fully-charged, our DH6 YELLOWTOP will measure about 13.0-13.2 volts and keeping your battery fully-charged whenever possible will maximize battery performance and lifespan. We're so confident that is true, we'll add a year of free replacement warranty coverage when you buy an OPTIMA battery from us, if you buy an OPTIMA Digital 1200 battery charger at the same time.
