Yellow Top Battery Install for the Jeep Wrangler – Optima All The Things!



In this video on the build up of the AutoEdits 2013 Jeep Wrangler Rubicon JKU, I show you how to install an Optima Yellow Top Battery and why it is a very important upgrade for any of your automotive applications!
Here are some really interesting details on all the different Color Coded Batteries from Optima:

REDTOP Starting Battery: Use this for normal engine starting where an alternator immediately monitors the state of charge and provides energy to the battery whenever it is needed. This would describe most stock vehicles.
Also use for:
-Automotive and RV under-hood starting
-Heavy equipment where starting is the primary function
-Diesel-powered vehicles with no aftermarket electronics

YELLOWTOP Deep-Cycle Battery: Use this when electrical loads are higher than average, or when the discharge cycle is more than typical engine starting, such as vehicles without alternators. This also includes vehicles with significant electrical loads that may exceed the average alternator output (for example, aftermarket audio systems, GPS, chargers, winches, snowplows, inverters, drag cars). This can also include vehicles that have a lot of electronics from the factory, such as a minivan with power sliding doors and a DVD player, especially if the DVD player is used when the engine isn’t running.
Also use for:
-Racing vehicles without a charging system (alternator or generator)
-Dedicated drag-racing vehicles
-Diesel-powered vehicles with aftermarket electronics
-Car audio/video applications exceeding 250 watts over the OE system
-Vehicles or heavy equipment with inverters, hydraulics, winches or other accessories
-Electric vehicles

BLUETOP Marine Battery: The BLUETOP starting battery (dark gray case) is to be used when a dedicated starting battery is required; it should never be used for cycling duty. The dual-purpose BLUETOP (light gray case) can be used for both starting and deep cycling; it is a true deep-cycle battery with extremely high cranking power.
Also use for:
-Trolling motors, marine applications with heavy electrical accessories and RVs should use a dual-purpose BLUETOP (which is both a starting and deep-cycle battery)
-Marine applications and RVs when the battery’s only function is engine starting
Note: The difference between BLUETOP and YELLOWTOP deep-cycle batteries is that BLUETOP batteries have both automotive (SAE) posts and threaded studs, while YELLOWTOPS (other than D31T) only have SAE terminals.

If you ever get confused about the colored tops, just remember: If it has a dark gray case, then it’s a starting battery; if it has a light gray case, then it’s a deep-cycle (dual-purpose) battery.
Remember, deep cycle use by any non deep cycle battery may void the warranty.

Homemade 12V to 48V DC-DC Converter Battery Charger for Electric Scooter/Bike



This is a PC board I made so I can charge a 48V seal lead acid battery from any 12VDC source. This design is simple and uses an off-the-shelf audio crossover coil. It charges my battery from a 12V source that gets switched on once the sun goes down. In the morning my batteries are ready to go and it didn’t cost me anything. Energy from the sun. However I can use with and 12V source that can provide 2-3 amps of power. There is a special circuit that will stop the SMPS once the battery level low around 11 volts. Next day the sun comes up and charges the 12V battery.

Homemade 6V / 2.5 Amp Power Supply/Battery Charger



If your looking for a HIGHLY efficient (6VDC 2.5A / 6VAC 3.0A) power supply or 6V lead acid battery charger, then look no further. This power supply/charger is made using a 120V (MOT) microwave oven transformer, by performing the modifications shown in this video. 120V transformer current at idle(NO LOAD) only draws 30mA, and using a full 2.5A load, 200mA. NO heating issues of the core whatsoever. As usual, always be very careful when working with 120VAC/240VAC projects!
